Senior Software Engineer, Devtooling

Seattle

The Devtooling team at Outreach is responsible for all the developer environment setups, CI/CD pipeline infrastructure, and tooling that supports that. Our fundamental mission is to empower all engineers to safely and efficiently deploy, build, and maintain new and existing services in a standard and repeatable manner. This means we have a focus around developer happiness while also building abstractions around our Infrastructure to remove some of the heavy lifting of how it works. This requires a very empathetic mind to relate to engineers of all walks, understand their needs, and do our best to meet them while also guiding toward best development practices. What this means is that we’re looking for someone willing to understand the pain of building code in a greenfield project and the confusion that comes with that. We’ll need people who understand that user experience is important even for internal tooling, with a focus on ease of discoverability of information. Outreach is planning to grow quickly into a more Service Oriented Architecture, so we’ll need to prioritize the biggest points of confusion and do our best to simplify and standardize those.
