What you'll do

As a systems telemetry staff engineer, you will be a key leader in the architecture and development of telemetry designs, managed services, and real-time telemetry software systems. You will use your depth of engineering and experience to lead software initiatives, proof of concepts, analysis of software products, and real-time metric and data system designs.

This role will involve collaboration with the business partners, product managers and representatives from other engineering disciplines. Specifically, you will work with enterprise architects, product owners, data scientists, engineers and business managers to bring telemetry R&D projects into production. To achieve this effect, you will use a combination of open source and COTS technologies to solve real-time telemetry problems at an enterprise wide scale. Furthermore, you will work on enabling telemetry datasets, pipelines, and data lakes to create a real-time actionable intelligence data environment.

You will transform business requirements to architectural designs and code in a fast pace agile environment while providing direction and leadership to junior engineers. In parallel, you will lead in the design of new systems and the redesign of existing systems to meet business requirements, changing needs, and integration of state-of-the-art technology. Also, you will ruthlessly prioritize and optimize designs where needed to ensure business needs are consistently being met. As a systems telemetry staff engineer, you will have the opportunity to lead and apply new technologies to overcome design challenges and technical problems enabling mission critical real-time telemetry systems.
