RedHat Principal Software Engineer, Backend - Advanced Cluster Security in Sunnyvale, California

About the job

The Red Hat Engineering team is looking for a Principal Software Engineer to join our Advanced Cluster Security (ACS) team in Sunnyvale, CA. In this role, you will work on new features and core backend services of ACS, which will help our customers safely run the world’s largest commercial Kubernetes clusters in private and public clouds. Our ACS engineering team is growing and that means you’ll be able to make an immediate impact on the offering, APIs, architecture, and engineering processes. With Kubernetes adoption rapidly growing, you and the team will constantly face new challenges like simplifying our customer deployments, improving performance to support new workloads, or exposing Google remote procedure call (gRPC) services behind load balancers; all of this ensures our offering works for both those getting started with Kubernetes and experts alike.

The Red Hat Advanced Cluster Security (RHACS) Engineering team is responsible for building security solutions for our customers. We design workflows to secure our customers’ Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform and Kubernetes deployments across the full software development life cycle as part of Red Hat Advanced Cluster Security, formerly StackRox. Combined with KubeLinter, a solution to lint security and operational readiness best practices, our mission is to continue to differentiate Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform as the most secure distribution of Kubernetes.

What you will do

  • Design, build, maintain, and test core backend services and APIs for ACS

  • Work across our offering, focusing on efficient data collection, event processing, storage, and persistence

  • Collaborate with other engineers, product managers, and product designers to shape, build, and improve new and existing features

  • Own core areas of the offering over their entire life cycle through design, implementation, and maintenance

  • Assist the Customer Support team in troubleshooting and resolving customer issues

  • Improve engineering standards, tooling, and processes

  • Build a personal brand and strengthen the company brand through technical blog posts and open source contributions

  • Write high-quality maintainable software

  • Help your colleagues via code reviews and design feedback

What you will bring

  • Willingness to learn new technologies, programming languages, and concepts; we work in Golang, but we care much more about your general engineering skills than knowledge of a specific programming language

  • Deliver high-quality software through a principled design document-first approach

  • Experience building extensible and maintainable APIs

  • Experience with scalable distributed systems

  • Thrive in a collaborative environment working with different stakeholders and subject matter experts

  • Understanding of and experience with Kubernetes is a plus
