Job Title...

Sr. Software Development Engineer-CTO-Application Security

Get to know us...

The Application Services team provides mission-critical processes, services and applications that operate at global scale, serving highly dynamic content to 56 markets in 30 languages, handling millions of requests per day, all with industry leading page performance.  The team writes the specifications, documentation, reference implementations for core GoDaddy services and applications and provides core libraries, runtimes and onboarding to the platforms and clouds that GoDaddy runs on.

We are looking for passionate developers who love to dive into technology and pull it all apart to see how it works, then put it back together again better than it was before.  We treasure curiosity, communication, a bias towards collaboration and action and the desire to embrace and extend best practices and patterns.  If you are the kind of person who can’t see something that isn’t right without a compulsion to make it at least just a little bit better before you put it back, we want to talk to you.

Join our team....

The Application Security Team develops continuous security tools to detect issues early in the development lifecycle & protect our customers' data.

This security focused position will help write and implement tools to find, fix, prevent, and security issues in our code base.  We work with GoDaddy’s software development teams develop more secure architectures while maintaining performance and usability of the product.


Your manager is in Kirkland, WA, but you’ll be working remotely from anywhere in USA or Canada.

What you'll get to do...

You apply expert-level knowledge of computer science principles and web development best practices every day to constantly innovate and improve the platform.  You seek to automate, instrument, and make data driven decisions.  You strive to enable our business partners and end-customers connect in new ways that help them succeed.  You are experienced with CI/CD and development standard methodologies and can mentor new developers confidently.  You are comfortable in all aspects of agile development methodology and know how to direct Scrum ceremonies.  You can develop novel new software libraries and features from scratch with little direction and can design and socialize important software updates across the team.  You have a cross-team approach and are capable of working with several teams together to validate broad, far-reaching software designs, divide work for implementation and drive good process, code review and testing methodologies across a larger group.

  • Design, implement, and test the various applications that comprise our platform
  • Continuously refine existing systems to improve their reliability, performance, and manageability
  • Provide operational support for critical customer-facing systems as well as internal APIs and tools
  • Collaboratively design and document next generation systems

Your experience should include

  • BS or equivalent experience in Computer Science, Engineering, Information Systems or related discipline
  • 5+ years of relevant full-time software engineering experience
  • Passion for self-driven, continuous learning both in and out of the office
  • Strong knowledge of Python, Java, C# or Go
  • Strong knowledge of CI/CD tools and best practices (Jenkins, Pipelines)
  • Experience with ELK stack (Kibana) and monitoring tools like New Relic or Sensu
  • Familiarity with Agile (Scrum) software development, Git/GitHub, and related tools
  • Experience with multiple data platforms is a plus (MySQL, PostgreSQL, Hadoop, Cassandra)
  • Excellent communication skills are required to be able to convey technical issues and details to non-technical users

You might also have 

  • Experience with cloud platforms e.g. AWS, Azure, Google Cloud Platform, etc.
  • Experience with Docker and Kubernetes

We’ve got your back

Enjoy our many benefits (My Wallet), including paid time off, 401k, equity grants and parental leave. Join one of our employee resource groups (Culture). Continue to have a side hustle, if you have one (we love entrepreneurs, remember?). Most importantly, come as you are and make your own way.
