JOB DESCRIPTIONAPPLY Post Date:
Job Title: Software Engineer, Tech Lead (Lead or Principal)
Location: San Francisco, CA
Salesforce.com hosts web services and applications written by thousands of internal developers and tens of thousands of customers to provide the largest business automation cloud on the planet. The compute infrastructure that enables this innovation and value is evolving to fully embrace lights-out operations, single-click deploy to tens of thousands of nodes, and services that self-heal and self-optimize.
Salesforce is building out our compute infrastructure team to reinvigorate the way we deliver, deploy, operate, secure, monitor, and repair our data centers and the code that runs across them - at consumer web scale. We are looking to add experienced distributed systems engineers who can step up and own big chunks of that vision.
We are seeking an experienced and hands-on senior/lead software engineer to join a world-class team of highly motivated software engineers and infrastructure experts. Your charter will be to deliver high-quality infrastructure automation tools, frameworks, workflows, and validation platforms that help Salesforce scale infrastructure to meet the phenomenal growth we are experiencing.
As a Team Lead, you have deep technical knowledge of web-scale infrastructure systems and will be responsible for leading and contributing to key projects in design, development, and post-release support of platforms, data frameworks, and validation tools, that are used by a variety of internal teams at salesforce.com. You will work on complex scaling challenges as we move our customers to new infrastructures seamlessly.
The ideal candidate learns quickly, works efficiently in fast-paced ambiguous environments, is team driven, solves complex problems permanently, and has an affinity for data and a bias for action.
