Java Software Engineers (Mid-Level & Senior)

New Relic Boston , MA 02298

Posted 2 months ago

Please note that visa sponsorship is not available for this position.

We are excited to consider a remote engineer for multiple opportunities we have on our Full Stack Observability Troubleshooting teams! Remote team members will be expected to work out of their home office.

Your Opportunity

New Relic is looking mid-level and senior software engineers to join our Full Stack Observability Troubleshooting teams. Members of these teams design, build, and operate the streaming systems that ingest and transform data used by our Tracing, Synthetics, Browser, and Mobile customers' agents and SDKs.

You're ready for these jobs if you want to learn about or have spent time building and improving large-scale high-availability production systems. You have hands-on front-line experience, and you're interested in how sophisticated systems work together and optimizing their behaviors. You've made mistakes (probably lots of them) and learned from them, but you've also been part of phenomenal successes.

What You'll Do

Our Engineers guide the design, construction, maintenance, and scale of our high performance back-end streaming systems. They are hands on in the code, and utilize their knowledge and skills to help their teams bake automation, quality, reliability, scalability, and simplicity into everything they do.

We hire fantastic engineers, and you will learn from them in a collaborative environment utilizing modern DevOps and SRE practices. All engineers lead by example, and work closely with engineering management, product management, technical support, and design to build the right features and ensure our customers understand their digital business.

We have a globally distributed development organization with teams spanning a nine-hour swath of timezones. The only way to keep all those teams in sync is through strong communications, and writing things down (plans, runbooks, brainstorms, etc.).

Your Qualifications


  • 4+ years of experience on professional software engineering teams

  • Experience building and operating commercial SaaS Java software

  • Knowledge of fundamentals required to build and operate highly-available Java software at scale including data structures, architectural patterns, and distributed systems

  • Collaborative and able to successfully navigate multi-functional teams within the organization

  • Published papers, presentations, or blog posts demonstrating written technical communication skill


  • Full stack knowledge of systems fundamentals

  • Site Reliability Engineering experience

  • Experience with Kubernetes, Java, Apache Kafka or other queuing system

Please note that visa sponsorship is not available for this position.
