Citrix builds the secure digital workspace technology that frees 400,000 customers to do their very best work from anywhere. By joining our award-winning workplace, you’ll be included in the globally diverse, collaborative team that values work-life balance. Come see why Fortune named us one of the 100 Best Companies to Work For®. Let’s innovate and grow together!
Citrix is rapidly developing and expanding its portfolio of large-scale cloud applications across all product lines, including app/desktop virtualization, networking, and content collaboration. These applications must deliver enterprise-grade performance, reliability, and integration while leveraging consumer internet economies of scale in multiple clouds (and in hybrid scenarios that reach behind the enterprise firewall). This requires excellent architecture and dev-ops process in software development, operations, and site reliability engineering.
Citrix believes that Operations efforts are an Engineering problem, not a human problem. We are looking for dedicated engineers to help us build an autonomous cloud capable of reliably serving 1 billion users. Gone are the days of logging onto a machine to fix or troubleshoot it. That simply does not scale in large cloud environments. Instead, we build autonomy into our products, tools, and environments to do Operations for us. Engineering a solution that can withstand failure and scaling challenges is paramount to our success.
We need you to:
Be able to develop software with one or more languages (e.g.: C#, Java, Python, Go, Node.js, Bash.)
Have hands-on knowledge in one or more cloud providers (GCP, AWS, Azure) or SaaS on any platform
Know when to build new or leverage/enhance an existing solution to solve a challenge.
Have a versatile range of skills or interests, including some of the following:
Health – Providing metrics, analytics, and observability in cloud systems.
Application Hosting – Common patterns to host applications (Kubernetes, Docker, FaaS.)
Networking – Security and connectivity between, into, and out of cloud services.
Delivery – Deliver cloud applications and resources reliably and without downtime (CI/CD pipelines)
Databases – Selecting and leveraging different database types and libraries.
Provide solutions to your team by identifying and addressing patterns in infrastructure and applications.
Evangelize and contribute to best practices in library usage and end-to-end architecture.
Work with other development teams to design scalable, robust systems using cloud native architecture principles.
Desire to be exposed to systems or applications at scale.
You are a passionate software engineer who knows how to apply engineering principles to operations, and is willing to learn more. You have some experience developing SaaS application and building IaaC. You are proficient in a number of technologies and welcome new tools and techniques. You enjoy working in conjunction with fellow developers and operations members to come to the best possible solution. You have an analytical mindset and you are always looking for patterns and ways to increase efficiency, eliminate downtime, optimize costs, and maintain performance.
You will be successful in this role if you:
Enjoy working with a large variety of services and technologies
Work as a team to solve problems together, minimizing your time being a lone wolf.
Not get caught up on specific tools and techniques, and instead focus on solving real-world challenges.
Tinker with new technologies as they become available to keep appraised of the industry.
Consider yourself just lazy enough to build tooling to perform redundant tasks rather than performing a series of manual tasks.
Design solutions with failure in mind to ensure reliability.
Strive towards implementation and iteration rather than over-analyzing a problem.
Bonus points for:
Being active in the Open Source community by leading, evangelizing, or contributing to projects
You have industry experience providing hands-on technical expertise to design, deploy, secure and optimize Cloud services
Experience with container technologies: Kubernetes, Docker
Experience with some automation tools, like: Terraform, Ansible
Experience with code control systems and CI/CD pipeline tools: Git, Jenkins, CircleCI.
