We are interviewing and onboarding 100% virtually at this time. PagerDuty is focused on inclusion and employee well-being by building a culture that isn’t location specific and gives equal opportunity to everyone—regardless of where you are working. Unless your job requirements make it necessary to be in a company office, you may choose to work in-office, remotely, or hybrid.

How You Contribute to Our Vision: Key Responsibilities 

We don’t hire based on experience with a handful of tools - experience with our stack is just a bonus. Instead, we want smart, capable people who can learn our tools quickly (and suggest new ones!) as needed. Some of the technologies that have been introduced by our great engineers include: Node.js, Java, Python, C#, etc.

  • You will work with a wide range of high volume systems, processes, and technologies to build features and solve customer problems. 
  • You will build and ship new customer-facing features, working directly with a product manager, customer support team, and a team of engineers. 
  • You will collaborate with other teams (such as product, UX, and other engineering teams) to deliver the highest quality experience on all platforms. 
  • You will provide code reviews for your fellow team members. 
  • You, along with your team members, will own and maintain the production systems that you build over the long term, be on-call for production issues, and steer the future direction of the components. 
  • Participating in your team’s on-call rotation, triaging and addressing production issues as they arise.

  • You have experience coaching and mentoring others

Minimum Requirements

  • You have 5+ years of development experience working on customer-facing and web-based systems. 
  • You have experience designing, building, and operating large systems with scalability, 
  • availability, and performance requirements. 
  • You have experience working in an agile environment with iterative development and fast feedback. 
  • You have at least one web programming framework (e.g. Express/NodeJS, Phoenix/Elixir, Ruby on Rails).
  • You have experience with tools that ensure your high-quality work makes a smooth, automated, repeatable transition from your machine to our staging and production environments.
