Software Eng, C/Php/Go at New Relic
Portland, Oregon, United States (Posted Jan 25 2015)
About the company
New Relic is an Oregon “Top Workplace” award winner, a San Francisco Best Places to Work award winner, named a leader in the Gartner’s 2013 “Magic Quadrant” for APM companies, a Top 100 OnDemand Company, Best of SaaS (THINKStrategies), Top 100 Coolest Cloud Computing (CRN); 10 Cloud Management Companies to Watch (NetworkWorld) – the list of accolades goes on. More important than all of that: we provide challenging work, opportunities to learn, high quality teammates, a standard-setting product, and a company on the move.
Our office is in the tech mecca of Portland, with easy commute access and a plethora of good eats and great coffee. We provide competitive compensation (including stock options) and big-company benefits (medical, dental, etc.)— all while maintaining the energy, agility, and fun of a start-up. We can help with relocation and are open to H1-B transfers.
Interested in how language VMs are implemented? Want to learn how to extend them to do amazing things? If so, join us in building New Relic's PHP agent.
Agents are challenging to work on, and many of the things most projects take for granted don't apply. Our projects are popular and widely deployed, running in hundreds of thousands of applications worldwide. Our code must coexist with a diverse set of libraries and versions, and gracefully handle error conditions outside of our direct control. Having a strong programming background is important, but there are a lot of advanced platform-specific techniques that can be learned on the job. Deep knowledge of PHP and the LAMP stack is cool, but not necessary.
We are a community of engineers who love playing around with the intricacies of programming languages, and who like solving tricky problems. We understand that engineering is all about balancing trade-offs, and about compromise. We support each other in a dynamic landscape in order to understand how to provide the most value to our customers.
• A supportive environment
• A sane work schedule
• Matching 401k contributions
• On-site bike mechanic
• Big company health insurance (medical, dental, vision, life)
New Relic is most decidedly an equal opportunity employer. We eagerly seek applicants of diverse background and hire without regard to race, color, gender, religion, national origin, ancestry, citizenship, individuals with disabilities, age, sexual orientation, protected veterans, or any other characteristic protected by law. Note: Our stewardship of the data of many thousands of customers means that a criminal background check is required to join New Relic.
