Members of the team are passionate about API design, open source and making developers’ lives easier. The team is distributed across San Francisco, New York, Dublin, Valencia, Barcelona, Frankfurt, Sofia, London, Copenhagen, and Helsinki.

As a Developer Productivity Engineer, you will be responsible for the design, implementation and maintenance of a CI infrastructure (we are migrating off Jenkins CI to GitHub Actions).  We are looking for a person who is a self-learner, enjoys optimizing workflows/processes, and has a laser focus on ensuring a great developer experience.

The ideal candidate will

  • Maintain shared test harness
    • We use a semi-automated mock deployment of our backend infrastructure for testing purposes that needs to be available for tests on devices and other exotic environments
  • Make sure CI runs tests on all platforms we support, both software and hardware
  • Make sure developer workflow is optimized as new requirements are incorporated - e.g. adding support for more hardware platforms, or upgrades in existing ones (building and testing on Apple Silicon, for example)
  • Collaborate proactively with teammates and colleagues across the organization as well as the open-source community

The Software Engineer will be successful in this role when they

  • Can deliver tasks through the entire SDLC, from design through deployment with minimal guidance
