Software Engineer at PagerDuty
San Francisco, CA, US

PagerDuty is the incident resolution service that integrates with ITOps and DevOps monitoring stacks to improve operational reliability and agility. Companies including Twitter, Lyft, Airbnb, and Google, amongst many others, trust and rely on PagerDuty to help achieve this.

We are looking for full-stack engineers to join our engineering team and help us continue innovating our product offering. We will achieve this mission by using the latest and greatest tools and languages to deliver world-class experiences on all of our platforms (webapp, APIs, mobile apps, and notifications).

How You Contribute To Our Vision

We don’t hire based on experience with a handful of tools - experience with our stack is just a bonus. Instead, we want smart, capable people who can learn our tools quickly (and suggest new ones!) as needed. Some of the technologies that have been introduced by our great engineers include: Ruby on Rails, Scala, Elixir, Ember.js, MySQL, Cassandra, Zookeeper, Kafka.

  • You will work with a wide range of systems, processes, and technologies to build features and solve customer problems.
  • You will build and ship new customer-facing features, including completing your first production deploy within the first 3 days!
  • You will collaborate with other teams (such as product, UX, and other engineering teams) to deliver the highest quality experience on all platforms.
  • You will provide code reviews for your fellow team members.
  • You, along with your team members, will own and maintain the production systems that you build over the long term, be on-call for production issues, and steer the future direction of the components.

About You

  • You have experience developing customer-facing and web-based systems.
  • You have knowledge of at least one modern web programming framework: Ruby on Rails, Sinatra, Phoenix, Flask, Django or similar.
  • You have experience with large-scale JavaScript projects or JS frameworks (such as React/Redux, Ember.js, AngularJS, or Backbone).
  • You have worked with REST-based APIs.
  • You are fearlessly self-driven.
  • You are empathetic- you take other opinions into account and clearly communicate your thoughts in order to reach technical solutions quickly.

  • Competitive salaries and company equity
  • Comprehensive benefits package including: medical, dental, and vision plans for you, your spouse and family; 401K, pre-tax commuter benefits, corporate discounts, cell phone allowance and more!
