Job Description

This position is a remote eligible position. You can choose to work at a remote location or at one of Redfin's headquarter locations (Seattle, San Francisco, or Dallas).

Redfin is redefining real estate in the consumer's favor by combining our own technology and agents to create a service that's better, faster, and costs less. As a Redfinnian, you'll make a difference in one of life's most important events-buying or selling a home. Our hiring standards are high, yet our culture is humble. We've got all the perks, but if what you value most is doing great work in a creative, collaborative, and disciplined environment, join us!

The Observability Engineering Team is on a mission to foster a culture of observability across all of engineering at Redfin. We build, manage, and support platforms that make it easy for teams to understand the health and performance of their production software and respond to incidents. Our systems handle massive scale and are critical to improving site-wide reliability.

We're looking for a passionate Senior Software Developer to extend our existing monitoring capabilities and add new ones to handle Redfin's growth and support new challenges as we decompose our monolith into services and migrate to the cloud. On top of these exciting technological challenges, we're working with the rest of the Site Reliability Engineering organization to make measurement a core part of Redfin Engineering DNA by driving adoption of service level objectives (SLOs) across the organization and establishing monitoring best practices. If you're excited by the potential for huge org-wide impact working on a collaborative, experienced team, we'd love to hear from you!

The Role

You lead the migration towards Redfin's future observability infrastructure - design performant, reliable, and scalable systems. This includes establishing new paradigms as Redfin makes more use of AWS and evolves our system architecture.

You identify trends happening elsewhere in the industry and investigate how we can apply them to the team or Redfin as a whole.

You better those around you by driving team efficiency improvements, mentoring teammates to strengthen individual skills and share your learning.

You understand relative service health and consult other teams to help guide engineering effort through SLOs.

You make use of the following technologies to support our monitoring initiatives: Java, Python, Docker, AWS, SQL, Elastic Search, StatsD, Kibana, Grafana, Prometheus, OpenTelemetry.

About You

You have 5+ years of experience in Software or Systems Development.

You have expertise in designing, analyzing and troubleshooting large-scale distributed systems, particularly in a cloud environment (preferably AWS).

You have strong development skills in at least one language (preferably Java).

You can lead and drive forward complex technical discussions with a variety of audiences, including Software and Systems Engineers, and Senior Management.

You exhibit customer empathy: you are a "voice of the customer" and understand how your projects affect user experience.

Bachelor's degree in Computer Science, Computer or Electrical Engineering, or 2 years of equivalent work experience.
