Job Description

Job #:  854197

GO (Golang) Developer Position Available in Atlanta!

Apex Systems is looking for a Java Developer with a Reliability Engineer background, or a Java Engineer who is interested in working in a Back-End Distributed Systems environment!

This position will require you to be on Apex's W2, so we will not be able to work Corp-to-Corp for this role.

If you are passionate about large scale, mission critical software systems, and you have a maniacal focus on system availability and performance, Reliability Engineering is for you.

As a member of our Reliability Engineering team, you will be responsible for scaling some of the largest software products in retail by automating the application infrastructure, deployment, and monitoring of those products in production.  You will also be part of a 24x7 on call team that will lead the triage of incidents for your products using your expertise to mitigate the problem as soon as possible. Our 'own what you build' mentality empowers you to make decisions quickly to deliver reliability improvements without the red tape that typically surrounds enterprise environments.  Our reliability engineering motto is: Enable speed with high availability.

You should have a passion for automating as much as possible and constantly be on the lookout for arras where operational and code efficiencies can be improved.  You will work directly with product engineering teams leveraging XP principles, and when you aren't automating all the things, you will be proactively executing destructive tests, participating in 'Game Day' exercises, and related activities to improve the operational readiness of your products.

Preferred Qualifications
-Proficient in production monitoring concepts, and implementation including synthetic, real user, application performance, system log, time-series, and dashboarding.  Includes tools like appdynamics, dynatrace, newrelic, splunk, Elk etc...
-Proficient in production systems design including high availability, disaster recovery, performance, efficiency, and security.
-Proficient in a modern scripting language(prefer Python)

-Experience in a version control system such as GIT or SVN
-deep understanding of modern microservice based architecture and operations
-Experience in destructive testing methodologies and tools such as chaos monkey
-Experience in CI/CD automation
-Experience in a cloud computing platform and the associated automation patterns it provides
-Experience in defense coding practices and patterns for high-availability
-Exposure to a modern object oriented programming language(prefer Java)
