Librato, located in San Francisco, develops a unique cloud-based platform designed to help companies collect, visualize, store and create alerts on large amounts of streaming data to manage the health of their applications. Our parent company SolarWinds provides powerful and affordable IT management software for the enterprise to more than 100,000 customers worldwide. SWI has $500M in revenue and 40% growth year over year. Together we offer application performance management for any environment, with unexpected simplicity.
We are looking for a full-time Software Engineer to help us build the scalable backend systems that power Librato.
The right candidate is adept at building scalable and highly-available systems in modern distributed systems languages. You are religious in using metrics to reason about the characteristics of an application, client library, or data store and use them to drive your decisions when shipping to production. You are a developer who cares about the impact of your design decisions on the user experience.
We offer great compensation packages and the opportunity to solve challenging problems with skilled colleagues. Our distributed team uses best practices to maximize our development velocity, including but not limited to: ChatOps, continuous integration/deployment, code review via GitHub pull requests, preferring asynchronous communication to meetings. We have competitive compensation and benefits, a team committed to life/work balance (really: http://blog.librato.com/posts/black-friday), hackday events (http://blog.librato.com/posts/hack-day) and fewer meetings, more shipping!
Here are just a few highlights of the systems we’ve built or work with on a regular basis:
