    Senior Engineer - Cloud Infrastructure Identity Tools Team

    Cloud Infrastructure Group (Seattle, WA)

    The Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) team can provide you the opportunity to build and operate a suite of massive scale, integrated cloud services in a broadly distributed, multi-tenant cloud environment. OCI is committed to providing the best in cloud products that meet the needs of our customers who are tackling some of the world's biggest challenges.

    We offer unique opportunities for smart, hands-on engineers with the expertise and passion to solve difficult problems in distributed highly available services and virtualized infrastructure. At every level, our engineers have a significant technical and business impact designing and building innovative new systems to power our customer's business critical applications.

    What is Identity Data and Observability at OCI?

    Identity and Access Management (IAM) allows users to control who has access to their cloud resources. As part of the Cloud Platform organization, the team is responsible for the design and build of core services that are utilized by internal and external customers alike.

    The Data and Observability team is responsible for ingesting and analyzing data across Identity services. This data needs to be easily visualized for service optimizations, debugging, and auditing. There are multiple pipelines of data with terabytes generated every day.

    Who are we looking for?

    We are looking for full-stack engineers with distributed systems experience. You should have experience with the design of major features and launching them into production. You've operated or supported high-scale services and understand how to make them more resilient. You work on most projects and tasks independently.

    The ideal candidate will be technically strong and get a lot done - you've worked on services that are highly available, scalable, and redundant. You've built rich tools and web apps for use by your team and other internal customers. You have experience with tools like Splunk, Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana. You understand that simple systems are easier to operate and troubleshoot. You can balance speed and quality with iteration and incremental improvements. You've made life easier for other developers and have motivated your teams to make both process and service improvements with your ability to automate and instrument properly to get the right data. You understand operational excellence and how to instill a culture of being proactive with your teammates.

    The person in this role will get a lot done on a daily basis, drive tactical execution of features and projects, and own feature design.

    What are the biggest challenges for the team?

    The biggest challenges for the team are scalability, performance and availability. The growth of the business is driving us to improve the ability of our systems to scale out and handle traffic patterns that are several orders of magnitude greater than what we can support today. This is generating a LOT of data. As we operate our services and serve more customers, we need the ability to quickly and accurately find log and performance information. Ideally, this would be self-service for our customers.

    We understand that software is living and needs investment. The challenge is making the right tradeoffs, communicating those decisions effectively, and crisp execution.
