Fullstack Product Engineer

A bit about Scalyr

Scalyr’s mission is to build the best tool for engineers to understand their operational systems. Our CEO, Steve Newman, cofounded Writely (aka Google Docs). Frustrated by the fact that visibility tools - even Google’s in-house tools - weren’t keeping up, Steve started Scalyr to create a better solution. It’s lightning fast, feature-rich and customers love it. The opportunity in front of us is huge and we are still in the very early days. This is going to be one of those companies where people will look back and say “I wish I’d been there when…” well, this is your chance to be part of “when”.

Your opportunity

Do you want to join a company where you will be first on the frontlines to working directly on the portion of our product with the highest customer visibility at Scalyr? We’re a full stack team that takes software engineering design principles seriously. Joining Scalyr is an amazing opportunity for anyone passionate about building a best-in-class user interface that allows dev-ops teams worldwide to quickly solve problems. We are seeking an individual who:

  • Loves to work on building an almost magically responsive user interface that attracts and delights our customers
  • Has familiarity with popular AngularJS tools, but is intrigued to help us because we also develop our own tools internally to help increase development velocity
  • Speed is your middle name and you understand the importance of it because we need to be able to show off the phenomenal performance of our database, so you will be working to keep response times fast
  • Wants to act as a thought-leader on our great team
  • Enjoys working on the overall architecture of our highly performant app

Do you find yourself passionate about being at the center of that effort? Do you also care to work on other components of the frontend? Do you like adding feature additions, bug fixes, and the like? Excellent. Because in addition to writing code, you'll be deeply involved in helping add to design discussions, conferring over technology dialogue, and all other aspects of the engine that powers Scalyr. We're looking for these qualities:

  • You’re smart enough to work at top companies, but you’re picky about finding the right role
  • You have lot of experience, but you also like to learn new things
  • You enjoy working with smart people and have fun building something phenomenal

Your skills:

  • Preferably a BS or MS in Computer Science, or equivalent practical experience
  • Experience of 2+ years of Java development (JSP’s and Tomcat a plus)
  • Experience of 4+ years of Javascript experience (at least 60% of your time will be spent in frontend code)
  • Strong knowledge of computer science fundamentals (data structures, algorithms, etc.)
  • Experience with standard performance optimization techniques
  • Experience working with different APIs and the data models
  • Flexible enough to easily shift focus with changing priorities
  • Able to work independently and be forward thinking
  • Team oriented and used to working in a small group

Your benefits:

  • Fully funded comprehensive medical, dental, and vision coverage
  • 401k

  • Flexible schedule
  • Unlimited vacations
