The Monitoring Services team manages, maintains and provides quality solutions that enable the business and partners to obtain valuable/actionable insight into the health of products and services. The team provides standards and best practices for the business as it relates to monitoring systems and services. We do this at a massive scale to ensure an amazing customer experience across our portfolio.

We’re looking for a passionate, high level engineer who loves to dive in to technology and pull it all apart to see how it works (the undiscovered country), then put it back together again better than it was before. This individual will help drive the technical vision for Monitoring Services along with fellow Architect/Engineers and the Director.  We treasure curiosity, communication, a bias towards collaboration and action and the desire to embrace and extend best practices and patterns. If you're the kind of person who can see something that isn't right and has a compulsion to make it at least just a little bit better before you put it back, we want to talk to you.

You apply expert-level knowledge of CS principles and engineering best practices every day to constantly innovate and improve everything you touch. You seek to automate, instrument, and make data driven decisions. You are experienced with CI/CD and development best practices and can mentor new engineers confidently.  You can develop novel new software libraries, features and entire services or applications from scratch with little direction and can design and socialize important software updates across the entire company. You have a broad and encompassing approach, and are capable of working with several teams from different parts of the company together to validate broad, far-reaching designs, divide work for implementation and drive good process, code review and testing methodologies across a larger group.
