Senior Software Engineer - Messaging Software & ChannelsApply
Because you belong at Twilio
The Who, What, Where and Why
You know how to depend on the skills of your team to build software and appreciate not having to be a master of everything. You are a strong advocate for your team in a larger organization and know when to have an opinion. You will need to be able to think at scale, and meet high availability goals, bringing a focus on solving resiliency, latency and quality challenges in our virtualized cloud environment. You bring experience with complex distributed systems, working in a Java and /or Scala development environments. Even better, you have expertise with scalable data pipeline (Kafka, Kinesis, Spark, Cassandra), and you are comfortable with managing large database clusters (e.g. mysql, postgres), and next generation distributed data stores.
As a new member of this team, you will define, design and implement our new software products to enhance and scale our messaging platform and build the technical infrastructure required to merge new communications mediums with the existing Programmable SMS infrastructure. To take these to scale, you will be integrating with a complex distributed platform in Scala and Java and will be concerned with availability, throughput, latency, and data integrity. There will be a significant data component so you will be working with distributed SQL and NoSQL databases and caches. At the core are cloud technologies that enable deployment and management of computing resources globally.
