Role Description

The Telemetry Engineering team is building an efficient, user-friendly observability platform that empowers all Dropbox engineers with the insights to operate reliable and performant systems. The systems owned by the Telemetry Engineering team enable all Dropbox engineers to quickly diagnose software development problems and bring delightful products to market quickly. 

The Telemetry Engineering team is responsible for building and integrating cutting edge logging, tracing, metrics and alerting software at DBX. The Telemetry team is looking for innovative, gritty senior software engineers who enjoy building scalable, reliable user friendly distributed applications.  Some of the technical challenges you will solve over the next year are as follows: 
  • Build or integrate a high scalable, user friendly, performant logging system to provide a cohesive view of UI events, service logs and IT asset logs to security and product engineers.
  • Re-imagine the architecture of the operational metrics platform used by all engineers at Dropbox to continue scaling year after year while pivoting to a multi metro design.
  • Build client libraries and APIs to expose the full suite of metrics platform features to product engineers who develop products for Dropbox, HelloSign and DocSend.
  • Build or integrate software to provide client side tracing, connect client side traces with server side traces and provide the ability to analyze historical trace trends.
  • Help set quarterly and multi-year technical strategy for the Telemetry Engineering team.
We care deeply about collaboration, inclusivity and innovation. Trust and respect are deeply rooted in our engineering culture. At the heart of Dropbox lies the largest networked filesystem in history. We routinely tackle audacious challenges, often against competitors who have 10-50x our resources. On top of this foundation, we're crafting products that enable people to do amazing things with their stuff across all their devices. We hope you'll join us!

Responsibilities

  • You will build high impact features while scaling a metrics system that handles 173.5 billion metrics per day.

  • Experience supporting, building and owning large-scale, multi-threaded, geographically distributed backend systems
  • Highly skilled at developing and debugging in C/C++, Java, Go or Python
