VMware Staff Software Engineer - Microservices in Boston, Massachusetts

CloudHealth by VMware is the global market leader in Cloud Management, and the most trusted software platform used to accelerate business transformation in the cloud. CloudHealth by VMware is looking for highly motivated individuals who will be responsible for providing outstanding customer service to ensure that customers, partners, and employees have a positive experience getting onboarding and ongoing training from CloudHealth.

The Elevator Pitch: Why will you enjoy this new opportunity?

You have an analytical mind and a passion for the craft of software engineering, and you love solving problems and learning new things. Technologies come and go, but that excites you because of the endless possibilities it creates. You are looking for an opportunity to work for a company whose software is utilized by every Fortune 500 company and significantly impacts every industry. You want to be a part of a collaborative environment whose teams care about the product they are creating, how they create it, and the impact it has on customers’ business objectives.

What is primary need, technical challenge, and/or problem you will be responsible for?

Our microservices engineering team is responsible for the architecture, design, and implementation of common services for our new platform. The CloudHealth platform manages data from multiple cloud providers in support of our 10,000+ customers. Our microservices team is developing a scalable platform to be consumed by our customers, partners, integrators, and CloudHealth feature engineering teams.

This team is leveraging the latest technologies to build reusable core services and a data pipeline that must be secure, scalable, reliable, available, and performant. If you are great at solving scale and resiliency problems in a rapidly expanding 24/7 SaaS environment and thrive on the challenges of developing and deploying microservices, this is the team for you.

Success in the Role: What are the performance goals over the first 6-12 months you will work toward completing?

  • You will be expected to produce software designs that define CloudHealth’s next generation service API and related infrastructure. These interfaces must meet VMware and industry standards and provide a consistent programming model across multiple programming languages.

  • You will define and develop APIs (REST and graphQL), SDKs and CLI interfaces that offer a consistent and secure access point to the CloudHealth platform for both internal and external use cases. You will also deliver automated tests and documentation to support the adoption of these interfaces.

  • You will be expected to work closely with other teams within CloudHealth that need to consume core platform features and ensure that their programmatic interface needs are met.

  • You will be responsible for designing and delivering the supporting infrastructure functions to deliver your solutions at cloud-scale, including features such as usage tracking, throttling, monitoring and alerting.

  • You will be regularly evaluated on the quality of the product you create and the code you write to ensure continued advancement of your technical skills in an environment that looks to expand them.

  • As a member of the CloudHealth infrastructure group you will be expected to work with and contribute to its Kubernetes based microservices architecture, and all your deliverables must align with the group’s development and deployment standards.

  • Advocate, encourage, and influence innovation and adoption of microservices architecture by being an effective technical leader across development teams.

What type of work will you be doing? What assignments, requirements, or skills will you be performing on a regular basis?

As a new member of the Infrastructure Platform Team (aka “Team Atlas”), you will:

  • Design and develop software using a microservices architecture, with knowledge of Docker and Kubernetes, in leading cloud environments (AWS, Azure, GCP) and build frameworks for other teams to follow your path

  • Work with the team and product management to build delivery requirements

  • Write technical design documents and hold reviews

  • Participate in all team scrum ceremonies

  • Develop and maintain software that delivers on the team’s objectives primarily in Java and Scala, and, infrequently, in Ruby or Golang

  • Deploy microservices to Kubernetes using Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) systems

  • Participate in our on-call rotation, providing operational support to our platform

  • Communicate with internal consumers of the team’s software and gather requirements and facilitate adoption of your solutions

What is the leadership like for this role? What is the structure and culture of the team like?

This position reports to the Manager of the CloudHealth Platform Team (aka “Team Atlas”), an experienced software engineer and manager who joined CloudHealth as an engineer in 2017. The team consists of highly competent senior engineers. We focus on iterative development, both of software and our software development practices.

You will initially be part an established team that has a wide range of core platform responsibilities, but the expectation is that you will help harden and evolve our Kubernetes-based development platform. This position is focused on making CloudHealth engineers more efficient by paving a path using components that our teams can use “off-the-shelf” to solve complex problems like CI/CD, inter-service communication, GraphQL API specifications, and others. This is a great opportunity to work with leading-edge technologies, experiment with new ways to build software, and provide critical supporting software to fellow engineers.

Your Experience

  • Bachelor of Science degree, or equivalent, in Computer Science or a related field minimum, M.S. preferred

  • 10+ years’ experience writing commercial software

  • Java/Scala experience, and a willingness to learn new technologies and languages

  • Deep understanding of Kubernetes and extensive experience developing microservices in Kubernetes.

  • Experience with microservice design and architecture

  • Experience with AWS services, like S3 and DynamoDB
