Your Opportunity

As a Software Engineer working on the Telemetry Data Platform, you will have the opportunity to help build high-throughput, high-availability services that operate at a scale rare within the industry. As the foundation of New Relic's product offerings, the Telemetry Data Platform supports our customers with core functionality for data ingestion, transformation, storage, and retrieval.

This requires an understanding of the patterns and tradeoffs inherent in building scalable systems and a belief that observability, operability, and reliability should be included from the beginning.

Your Qualifications

  • Knowledge of fundamentals required to build and operate highly-available software at scale including data structures, architectural patterns, and distributed systems.
  • A desire to work as part of a team that values curiosity, efficiency, and quality and strives to strike a balance between thoroughness and delivery.
  • A willingness to be on-call for the software you build and a genuine desire to learn from mistakes.
