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!

What we're looking for:

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 talented 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.

Every Cloud Platform Engineer in Reliability Platform Governance Engineering (RPG) is responsible for the Security, Availability, Performance, Compliance, and Cost of Citrix cloud services. You will be part of a distributed team responsible for the Platform Health and Performance Monitoring on a 24x7 basis , doing 8-hour shifts.

  • Proficiency in one or more cloud providers (AWS, Azure, GCP) or in large-scale SaaS on any platform
  • Know when to build new or leverage/enhance an existing solution to solve a challenge.
  • Have a wide range of skills, 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
    • Databases – Selecting and leveraging different database types and libraries
    • Provide common solutions to multiple teams 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
    • Have exposure to systems or applications at scale
    • Proficiency in both Windows and Linux Operating systems security and troubleshooting

About you

You will be successful in this role if you

  • 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

  • Strive towards implementation and iteration rather than over-analyzing a problem
  • Like looking through metrics and logs as if it were a treasure hunt
