Responsibilities

We care about hiring great engineers rather than a specific language skill set, but many people want to know what tech we're using right now. The development stack spans API services (Python, JavaScript, and Go) & devops (Kubernetes and Docker) along with current back-end technologies including scikit-learn, deep learning frameworks like TensorFlow, and cloud computing platforms like AWS.

  • Contribute code yourself to our machine learning and experimentation platforms, and the interstitial systems that help them run.
  • Work with your PM partner to regularly launch experiments and measure the customer impact of your work.
  • Participate in development of pipelines for collecting data, and training and deploying machine learning models.
  • Participate in devops, release, and on-call activities in support of your team's services.
  • Engage with engineers & stakeholders across GoDaddy to solve problems with broad impact (from group-wide to company-wide).
  • Participate in recruiting activities, always increasing the talent density and diversity of our teams.
  • Continuously improve agile practices within your team and across GoDaddy.
  • Ensure quality patterns and define, publish, and follow metrics to ensure product quality.
