Your Opportunity

We are looking for a hardworking engineer to join our Data Platform team, developing the high-performance, big data components that power New Relic's extraordinary suite of software analytics products.

If you love scale and want to contribute to one of the largest and fastest growing big data platforms in the world, we'd love to hear from you. If the idea of working on systems that process millions of messages per second and handle petabytes of data excites you, then you may be exactly who we're looking for.

At New Relic, we hire people who are eager to contribute to our culture, and we empower them to do just that. We take pride in thinking beyond our day-to-day job descriptions, and encourage you to actively seek out opportunities to create the type of work environment that you want to be a part of. What does this look like in action? You should be ready to be a "culture add" to New Relic and spend ~5% of your time finding meaningful ways to make this an even better place to work.

What You'll Do

  • Design and implement the next generation New Relic data model.

  • Increase the capabilities of our high throughput data streaming pipeline to deliver amazing features to our customers while maintaining high availability of service.

Your Qualifications

  • A deep understanding of Computer Science fundamentals.

  • You have a love of operations, monitoring, data, and building great customer experiences.


  • DevOps experience in software development running systems for companies that run a 24x7 business.

  • Knowledge of distributed systems, concurrency problems, and JVM performance.

  • Our architecture is designed around Apache Kafka, and every single one of our services interacts with Kafka in one way or another. Experience with Kafka or other data pipeline technologies is a plus, but not required.

  • Experience with containers such as Docker or Kubernetes, AWS apis, or Thrift.

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