Job description

A U.S.-based company that is building a platform for close interaction to assist developers in the creation of APIs, is looking for a Release Support Engineer. The engineer will be responsible for defining and polishing the tech stack while making use of open-source tools, generalizing product-specific code, and/or developing creative solutions to issues that the team encounters. The company provides integration with version control systems, continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipelines, and popular API management platforms. The company has managed to secure more than $430mn in funding so far. 


Job Responsibilities:

  • Create and put into use new tools and scalable frameworks to speed up the organization's release workflow and enable hundreds of engineers to write code more effectively
  • Organize the use of and/or creation of scalable infrastructure to enhance the caliber of products and the efficiency of engineering
  • Actively partner with Engineering Leaders, Product Managers, and other stakeholders to ship services and tools that significantly improve developer productivity and overall quality and performance across the tech stack
  • Drive strategic efforts, encourage the use of new or improved frameworks, find possibilities for service layer abstraction, and be a key player in advancing engineering excellence
  • Provide technical direction to the overall architecture and design, as well as actively mentor through extensive code reviews and paired programming
  • Manage requests from various squads and communications with the bigger organization (therefore TPM expertise)
  • No active development of any features or improvements is required but spend some time supporting various squads in release activities
  • Manage simple development chores like branch merges in a sizable Git repository, building the project locally (using NodeJS or JavaScript), and using/debugging Circle CI automation 

Job Requirements:

  • Bachelor’s/Master’s degree in Engineering, Computer Science (or equivalent experience)
  • At least 5+ years of relevant experience as a Release Support Engineer
  • 5+ years of experience developing infrastructure for products and/or tests
  • Considerable working knowledge of libraries used in the modern web development toolchain, including Webpack, esbuild, Babel, Mocha, Jest, and Enzyme
  • Solid knowledge of Java, JavaScript, DevOps, and TypeScript
  • Strong background in CI/CD and Agile development, employing tools like GIT, CircleCI, New Relic, AWS, etc.
  • Ability to effectively coordinate cross-functional communication to pinpoint tooling requirements, automation gaps, and labor-saving development practices
  • Prior experience working with front-end development technologies like NodeJS and JavaScript
  • Extensive experience with Circle CI for CI/CD and Bitbucket for VCS
  • Ideal to have prior DevOps experience building distributed frameworks, infrastructure, or other development and monitoring tools that are crucial components of production systems
  • Prior experience making and promoting your own open-source tools is nice to have
  • Experience with technical publications or authoring related to software development and delivery is preferred  
  • Excellent spoken and written English communication skills
