Staff, Software Engineer (L4) - Segment Foundations United States

Company: Twilio

At Segment, we believe companies should be able to send their data wherever they want, whenever they want, with no fuss. We make this easy with a single platform that collects, stores, filters, transforms, and sends data to hundreds of business tools with the flip of a switch. Our goal is to make it easy to understand, extract value, and protect the integrity of data. We are creating a world where engineers spend their time working on their core product, letting us take care of the complexities of processing their customer data reliably at scale. We’re in the running to take over the entire customer data ecosystem, and we need the best people to take the market.
 

Who we are:

We’re looking for someone to help shape the long term vision of the integrations platform. This group works on high-volume distributed systems powering our connections product, including job orchestration via centrifuge, and custom sources and destinations with the functions runtime. They enable the extensibility of our product for both internal teams and external partners and customers, as well as drive cost improvements, reliability and security of our core delivery platform.
 

What we do:

  • We’re building high-performance data pipelines using Go and Kafka
  • We ship features that opt for high availability and throughput with eventual consistency
  • We’re bringing graph execution to the data plane to power a growing number of features and product use cases
  • We support a runtime for invoking untrusted code at the extremities of the pipeline
  • We support the reliability and security of the integrations platform
  • We scale our pipelines to hundreds of thousands of messages/sec
 

Who we’re looking for

  • You thrive in a fast paced and iterative environment. You are driven more by customer impact than technology.
  • You love designing and shipping new products as much as iterating on existing ones.
  • You're focused, driven, and can get challenging projects across the finish line.
  • You're empathetic, patient, and love to help your teammates grow.
  • You have experience running services in production and take software engineering practices seriously. You write meaningful tests and understand the value of great logging, proper monitoring, and error tracking.
  • You can design and implement distributed systems solutions that are highly durable and (eventually) consistent.
 

Requirements:

  • 8+ years experience writing production-grade code in a modern programming language.
  • You have some familiarity with Golang or are excited to learn it.
  • Strong theoretical fundamentals and hands-on experience designing and implementing highly available and performant fault-tolerant distributed systems.
  • Well-versed in concurrent programming.
  • Solid grasp of Linux systems and networking concepts.
  • You show evidence of exposure to architectural patterns of high-scale web application (e.g., well-designed APIs, high volume data pipelines, efficient algorithms).
  • Experience maintaining and operating always-on cloud services.
  • You value teamwork and agree with the statement that “a team is a group of people who own each others’ decisions”.
 

We’re especially excited about candidates who:

  • Have experience operating large-scale, distributed systems on top of cloud infrastructure.
  • Have expertise in problem solving and analyzing distributed systems at global scale.
