Procore Technologies

Principal Software Engineer (Reliability)

3+ months agoRemote

What if you could use your technology skills to develop a product that impacts the way communities’ hospitals, homes, sports stadiums, and schools across the world are built? Construction impacts the lives of nearly everyone in the world, and yet it’s also one of the world’s least digitized industries, not to mention one of the most dangerous. That’s why we’re looking for an experienced Principal Software Engineer to join Procore’s journey to revolutionize a historically underserved industry.

As a Principal Software Engineer on our Reliability Engineering team, you’ll help champion solutions to systemic issues affecting every team at Procore. Leveraging your software and systems architecture expertise, you’ll conduct consultative engagements with our service authors that improve our software’s reliability. If you have a passion for solving complex problems unique to running large, highly scalable, resilient systems, we would love for you to join us!

This position will report to the Senior Manager (SRE Embedded) and can be based at any of our US offices or remotely in the US. We’re looking for someone to join our team immediately.

What you’ll do:

  • Lead the technical decisions within a blended team of Reliability Engineers to continually improve the reliability of Procore’s services through engineering and process improvement
  • Lead your team to envision, design, and develop solutions in their respective areas with a bias toward reusability, toil reduction, and resiliency
  • Identify opportunities across the broader organization for adopting, implementing, and maturing solutions to complex, systemic issues
  • Continuously shape and evolve our Reliability Engineering strategy over time
  • Use a collaborative approach to lead architectural design decisions that align with Procore’s architectural vision
  • Partner with internal customers, peers, and leadership in planning, prioritization, and roadmap development
  • Develop teammates by conducting code reviews, providing mentorship, pairing, and training opportunities
  • Serve as the subject matter expert on tools, processes, and procedures and help guide others to create and maintain a healthy codebase
  • Facilitate an “open source” mindset and culture both across teams internally and outside of Procore through active participation in and contributions to the greater community


What we're looking for:

  • BS or MS degree in Computer Science or related discipline; or comparable work experience. Technical Certifications are a plus
  • 12+ years of combined experience as a Software, Resiliency, or Reliability Engineer, with proficiency in two or more languages (Ruby, Node.js, Java preferred)
  • Experience architecting and designing services within distributed systems
  • Experience seeking and solving complex systemic problems
  • Experience running applications on Kubernetes in Production
  • Experience working with software, platforms, and infrastructure at scale (we run thousands of hosts and have millions of users) 
  • Experience as a technical leader on large initiatives with the ability to course-correct as needed
  • Experience with the following is preferred:
    • Public cloud (AWS, GCP)
    • Cloud automation tooling (e.g., CloudFormation, Terraform, Ansible)
    • Continuous Integration Tooling (e.g., CircleCI, Jenkins, Travis, etc.)
    • Continuous Deployment Tooling (e.g., ArgoCD, Spinnaker)
    • Service Mesh / Discovery Tooling (e.g., Consul, Envoy, Istio, Linkerd)
    • Contributions to major open source projects
