Vonage Engineering Mission: Vonage is the emerging leader in the $100B+ cloud communications platform (CPaaS) market. Customers like Airbnb, Viber, Whatsapp, Snapchat, and many others depend on our APIs and SDKs to connect with their customers all over the world.

  • Own the shared and infrastructure services that the company relies on to deliver our production environment

  • Proactivily make propositions for improvements in the software stack, and follow them up to completion
  • Write and review code and configuration
  • Improve the visibility and monitoring of the production environment
  • Propose, evaluate and integrate new tools
  • Participate in an on-call rotation
  • Partner with the development teams, to help them improve the scalability and reliability the services they own
What You Will Bring:
