Full-Time Python Agent Engineer

New RelicPortland, Oregon, United States

NOTE: This job listing has expired and may no longer be relevant!

Job Description

New Relic is growing our Python agent team — a key component for our world’s-best app performance monitoring tool. If you know how to pronounce Django, Gunicorn and WSGI, we’re interested.  If you use them while telling us about your recent projects, we’re really, really interested.  And if you named your first child GIL . . . you are going to the head of the line.

We’re a pre-IPO start-up, so of course we’re looking for people with top-notch software design and coding skills, and people who work well in a distributed team. And we’re an agile organization, so we’re looking for people who have “agile” in their DNA: people who do continuous integration and find creative ways to test complex systems. Our product is dead simple for our users — which of course means it is complex behind the screen.  So you will do well if you have experience designing and building large, complex software systems.

To fast track your resume, summarize in your cover letter what you have done with:

  • ·         WSGI programming and application deployment
  • ·         Asynchronous web programming (Twisted.Web, Tornado)
  • ·         Porting code to Python 3.X and PyPy
  • ·         Python C extension modules
  • ·         Python packaging systems
  • ·         Python decorators and monkey patching
  • ·         Python profilers and debuggers

We want to hear about your direct experience with these (or similar) technologies. What did you do and when did you do it? And, if you really want the job, tell us why you think you are a great fit for this team and this great company!

A Little About Us

We are passionate, possibly even crazy, about application performance management (APM). Our mission is to make web applications run better, to make the internet more productive, and to make life easier for developers and devops. We are turning the APM marketplace upside down by providing SaaS products that deliver high-value functionality previously only available through enterprise software. We are well above 17,000 customers. And with your help we’ll get to 10x that number.

New Relic is a Top 100 OnDemand Company, Best of SaaS (THINKStrategies), Top 100 Coolest Cloud Computing (CRN); 10 Cloud Management Companies to Watch (NetworkWorld); the list of accolades goes on. More important, we provide challenging work, opportunities to learn, high quality teammates, a great product, a company on the move, and . . . the freedom to do your work the way only you can do it.

The position is in our Portland, Oregon office, a vibrant tech community and a region with a great quality of life. We will help relocate the right candidate.  We offer competitive compensation, pre-IPO stock options, and big-company benefits (medical, dental, vision, life), while maintaining the energy, agility and fun of a start-up.

New Relic is most decidedly an equal opportunity employer. We seek applicants of diverse background and hire without regard to race, color, gender, religion, national origin, ancestry, citizenship, disability, age, sexual orientation, or any other characteristic protected by law.
