Who we are…

The Software Engineering team is composed of small groups of highly intelligent and innovative software development and quality assurance engineers who enjoy collaborating on technically challenging projects. Each team member is as unique as the projects we work on, but one thing remains the same – our commitment and passion to delivering cutting edge technology solutions for hybrid cloud network monitoring.

Managing today’s hybrid cloud IT infrastructure can be complex and chaotic. As a Software Engineer with ScienceLogic, you will play an integral role in developing the solution by creating clarity and visibility for infrastructure for some of the largest companies and service providers in the world.

  • Contribute to maintaining highly scalable Python processes for the purpose of data collection, manipulation, data pruning, trending, and analytics, etc.
  • Contribute to the review and maintenance of product backlog, as well as assisting in the implementation of features while adhering to sound Engineering principles.
  • Contribute to the resolution of escalations and to the review and correction of defects.
  • Work in a collaborative and agile environment that is geared towards a Continuous Delivery mechanism, exhibiting strong time management and communication skills; as well as flexibility/agility to changing environments.

Qualities you possess…

You’re a self-starter, a problem solver, love to code, have excellent time-management skills and are open and collaborative.  Plus, you’ve got the following skills:

  • BS in Computer Science or equivalent experience building and scaling applications, ideally in an open-source environment with Linux, MySQL, NoSQL, JavaScript, Python, and/or PHP and microservices using containers, Kubernetes, and Kafka.
  • Experience reading code to extract its design and intent, and resolve defects.
  • Proficiency with Python and the ability to deliver high quality, production ready code.
  • 2+ years using MySQL/NoSQL and can evaluate and write efficient queries.
  • 2+ years using Linux with the ability to navigate, write scripts, and work with packages.
  • Working knowledge of developing multi-threaded or multi-process software.
  • Working knowledge of software development lifecycle, from product backlog through delivery.
  • Strong interpersonal skills.
  • Experience in network or systems management is a major plus.
  • Prior experience in an Agile environment with an emphasis on Continuous Delivery/Continuous Integration.
  • A working knowledge of current build tools, and advanced bash scripting is highly preferred.
  • You are passionate about delivering high quality, production ready code and believe that teams, not individuals are responsible for software quality.
