Attention! This Job is older than 30 days!

Node.js Runtime Agent Hacker

New Relic (San Francisco, CA or Portland, OR)
Full Time Friday, June 28th, 2013

Job Description:

New Relic’s Node.js agent is bringing the awesomeness of New Relic to Node developers everywhere, and you can be a part of the fun! You already love Node. You already love the Node community. So imagine spending your days digging into the guts of Node core and working with Node committers to help make Node better and easier to debug. Sounds good, right?

This job is not for the faint of heart. To be honest, it’s going to be really hard.

To be successful, you must be comfortable describing how Node’s event loop works, and you will have at least some idea of where V8 stops and libuv begins. You should have a solid grasp on basic Node performance tuning, and maybe some experience with DTrace and mdb to troubleshoot Node applications. Functional programming and OO chops are expected, and you should be comfortable with functional topics like functional composition and continuation-passing style.

This is a javascript role. You will be writing loads of JS, but you don’t fear debugging C/C++, when needed. New Relic is full of polyglots, so learning Ruby, Java, Python, Go, and other languages excites you. You also like helping people as you will be supporting other developers who may not know how Node works.

We’re a very fast growing pre-IPO start-up and we care about our culture. We value:

• Work/Life Balance

• Respect

• Engineer Code Ownership

• Experimentation

A little about us

We are passionate, possibly even crazy, about application performance management (APM). Our mission is to make web applications run better, to make the internet more productive, and to make life easier for developers and devops. We are turning the APM marketplace upside down by providing SaaS products that deliver high-value functionality previously only available through enterprise software. We are well above 40,000 customers. And with your help we’ll get to 10x that number.

New Relic is a San Francisco Best Places to Work 2012 award winner, a Top 100 OnDemand Company, Best of SaaS (THINKStrategies), Top 100 Coolest Cloud Computing (CRN); 10 Cloud Management Companies to Watch (NetworkWorld); the list of accolades goes on. More important, we provide challenging work, opportunities to learn, high quality teammates, a standard-setting product, and a company on the move.

This position is in our Portland, Oregon or San Francisco office, both smack in the middle of vibrant tech communities and a great quality of life. We offer competitive compensation, pre-IPO stock options, and big-company benefits (medical, dental, vision, life), while maintaining the energy, agility, and the fun of a start-up. We can help with relocation and are open to H1-B transfers.

New Relic is most decidedly an equal opportunity employer. We seek applicants of diverse background and hire without regard to race, color, gender, religion, national origin, ancestry, citizenship, disability, age, sexual orientation, or any other characteristic protected by law. Note: Our stewardship of the data of many thousands of customers’ means that a criminal background check is required to join New Relic.
