ServiceNow makes the world of work, work better for people. We help our customers automate and improve their operations in three core areas; within their IT teams, with their employees, and with their customers.

The ServiceNow platform not only powers every ServiceNow delivered application but also allows customers to create their own custom applications and solutions. Our goal is to build a high performing, scalable and robust database platform that can support the various workloads our customers deploy.

As our customer base and their usage grows, it is imperative for our database platform to adapt to support different workloads as demanded by our customers.

  • Be part of a team of talented engineers & technical partners building the next-gen database platform.
  • Analyze and understand performance and scalability bottlenecks in the system to solve problems
  • Own production systems rollout, perform production testing/ debugging and provide workarounds while collaborating with the team to provide long-term solutions.
  • Further your passion for solving complex problems which provide significant customer value

 

 In order to be successful, we need someone who has:

  • Bachelor’s/Master’s degree in Computer Science or equivalent experience
  • 8+ years of software development and deployment experience
  • Experience coding in C/C++, Go, Ruby or Java
