- Ensure scalability, performance, maintainability and security of the technology platform in collaboration with ops teams.
- Participate in all phases of the software lifecycle.
- Become a catalyst to better working practices across Zendesk.
- Mentor and guide junior team members by reviewing their code submissions, code pairing, and being a sounding board.
How you will make a difference:
- Have a career in Software Engineering with strong capabilities in Java, Python or Node.js. and practiced both frontend and backend technologies.
- Sophisticated level knowledge with Java, and working experience with one of the streaming data solutions like Kafka.
- Delivered Enterprise Grade software in a SAAS company.
- With proven understanding of architecture of highly concurrent and low latency systems and common tradeoffs with regard to performance, scalability and reliability.
- Take a mature and pragmatic approach when choosing technologies.
- Put the customer first and respect your dedication to deliver, and not afraid to raise voice when needed and listen to others.
- Personal projects, contribution to open-source community or active learning initiatives would be a good sign of your passion to learn and seek problems!
