Staff Software Engineer - Codespaces

Posted Apr 25


We’re looking for software engineers to join a passionate, collaborative, distributed group of engineers on our team.

With Codespaces, we’re building and operating a new type of software development platform: instant-on, remote, container-based development environments. In this model, Engineers work in parallel environments tailored for a specific project where the overhead of launching a task-specific workbench is effectively zero. Work on a bug, review a change, or just try something out, all booted from a clean baseline ready for your commits.

With Codespaces, our goal is for developers to spend more of their time writing code and less managing their environments.

In this role you will play a critical role in shaping and implementing the future of the Codespaces product. You will work directly with developers and customers to help define the future of hosted development environments. You will work with a strong team of developers to design and build a platform that is secure, reliable and most of all fun to develop on.

Responsibilities

  • Contribute as a leader and influencer for Codespaces engineering
  • Maintain a high bar for developer experience
  • Contribute where needed: from abstract design stages through to line-level
  • Review code and provide thoughtful, constructive feedback during code reviews
  • Lead conversations around technical issues and engineering practices
  • Write clear positions or internal RFC for challenging technical problems
  • Collaboratively define, scope, prioritize, and estimate work
  • Work directly with customers and colleagues, debugging and otherwise advising
  • Provide compassionate technical mentorship, pairing opportunities, and code reviews
  • Offer and receive feedback to grow yourself and the team

Qualifications

  • High degree of developer empathy: passionate about developer experience and tools
  • 8+ years experience as a full-time professional coder
  • Experience in technical leadership roles such as tech lead, team lead or equivalent
  • Ability to clearly communicate and influence technical and non-technical audiences
  • Experience with Ruby on Rails, Go, or similar languages
  • Experience with testing, profiling, and debugging practices
  • Experience working asynchronously on a remote, distributed team
  • Experience building, operating and maintaining resilient, scalable distributed services
  • Passionate about mentoring and helping peers throughout the organization
