- San Francisco, CA
What We Are About:
Our guiding philosophy in Engineering is to get things right through practicing disciplined engineering, focusing, not cutting corners, and of course having fun while we are at it. We believe in enabling ownership at all levels of the organization and empowering teams. If you thrive in this culture, come join us, we are changing how enterprises secure their applications. At Illumio, we design systems and write code that runs both in our own multi-tenant cloud service and in customer data-centers around the world.
What You Will Accomplish:
We are looking for passionate, hands-on platform Staff Engineer to join the PCE Platform team of the Policy Compute Engine (PCE), the central brain of Illumio’s Adaptive Security Platform product. Our Platform team is growing and owns the core of the Policy Compute Engine. This covers platform frameworks and infrastructure for our service-oriented architecture including cluster management, high availability, caching and persistence layers, API support, background jobs, reporting infrastructure, authentication and authorization, and more. We focus on the important aspects of scale and performance of the system to meet the demands of our customers, including queuing, responsiveness and active connections to tens of thousands of managed servers.
As a Staff Engineer in the PCE Platform team at Illumio, you will have the opportunity to help design and evolve our product to take it to its next generation. This includes key aspects of our multi-node offerings such as service discovery and management for various applications.
At Illumio, we design systems and write code that runs both in our own multi-tenant cloud solution as well as within customer on-premises installations around the world. Our culture provides all of our engineers the opportunity to stand out.
We operate under tight deadlines yet also offer a dynamic and challenging environment. As we grow here at Illumio, our philosophy remains the same: focus, practice disciplined engineering, ship the best high-quality products and have fun doing it.
What You Will Bring:
We expect you to have a broad system understanding and design new components from the ground-up.
Strong understanding of databases is essential - experience with postgres is a bonus.
We are looking for someone keen on owning their design and implementation – unafraid to ask questions or articulate design trade-offs with proposed solutions.
We highly value the ability and desire to learn, mentor, and collaborate with others in our organization.
We seek experience building large scale and performant distributed systems and web services with REST APIs.
We seek engineers who focus on delighting customers and embody a ‘Customer First’ philosophy.
