Senior Software Engineer, Python, AWS

Job Description

Love staying ahead of the growth curve and experimenting with new software and environments? Get on board as an Atlassian Software Engineer.

As a Senior Engineer in the Bitbucket Cloud Site Reliability Engineering team, you’ll build solutions to enhance availability, performance and stability of  Bitbucket Cloud services as well as automating away repetitive work. You'll also respond to pings, pages and alerts to investigate issues in our products that you can really sink your teeth into. You'll be working on non-production and production environments, monitoring, data collection and configuration management, as well as disaster recovery planning, capacity engineering, reliability improvement initiatives and platform automation. The best person for this role is someone that has a collaborative spirit - in our world, it’s not about being a hero and having all the answers, it’s about sometimes saying "I don't know" and working on finding solutions rather than starting with an assumption. The team needs someone who can ask questions, learn from others and turn chaos into order.

This role would be a great fit for someone with creative and innovative problem solving skills with a willingness to take responsibility for the code you write all the way to production. You will develop and implement solutions that operate at scale - seeing your own technology efforts directly improve the reliability of our products. Our teams are empowered and expected to improve our products to truly deliver a reliable experience to customers. You will own development efforts in each and every sprint from planning to delivery to realize this goal and collaborate with different teams to review code.

One thing we promise: you’ll never be bored.

On your first day, you will have experience in:

  • Software development experience in Python
  • Deep understanding of Linux systems
  • Hands on experience with cloud infrastructure such as AWS, Google compute, Azure, Rackspace cloud - minimum of 2 years
  • Deep expertise in Monitoring distributed systems application architectures

  • Exposure to system and application level telemetry for large distributed cloud architectures
  • Diagnosing and resolving problems in high-throughput web applications and network services

  • Experience leading teams of engineers in service outage situations
