Job description
Infrastructure engineering's mission is to ensure Xoom's applications and services are loosely coupled, leverage the right technologies to scale and are integrated into our continuous delivery pipeline. We provide a scalable, automated build infrastructure using Go, Git, Jenkins, Docker and Kubernetes (see https://github.com/xoom/stashkins) to empower our product development teams to deliver new features as fast as possible. We maintain hundreds of virtual machines for our development, QA, product teams and partners using puppet, AWS and VSphere. We are constantly improving our push-button continuous delivery tools so developers can push their features to customers with greater speed and confidence.

Xoom's internal system design is best described as a microservice architecture. Infrastructure engineering provides the libraries, standards and documentation to help development teams produce RESTful APIs that are well documented, instrumented, easily configured and managed.

Infrastructure Engineering is looking for a Senior Performance Engineer to help us visualize and understand the performance of our microservice-based SOA. Candidates must have experience in data visualization and working with development and operations teams to find correlations, build anomaly detection alerts and identify opportunities for optimization. The Senior Performance Engineer will establish processes to ensure that non-functional requirements are monitored and met through all phases of the software development lifecycle, and will train development teams to instrument their code and build visualizations and alerts based on their custom metrics.
