C/Unix Agent Engineer
Are you a C/C++ rockstar?
Do you also love modern, dynamic languages like Ruby, Python, and PHP?
Are you fascinated with the implementation of these languages: memory layouts, garbage collectors, the corners of the performance envelope, and even the C internals of the VMs?
Are you motivated by building things that “can’t be built”?
If you answered "Yes!" you really should be part of the New Relic dev team. What are you waiting for?? See log in below. Oh, you want to know more . . . ?
New Relic is looking for someone who understands multithreading, database contention, and object-oriented design, as well as the experience coding down in the bits: C/C++/Apache/PHP/Python/etc. Enthusiasm for agile processes and continuous deployment is essential, whereas experience building and deploying web applications is helpful but not a blocking requirement.
Our product is simple for users, but complex behind the scenes. This requires that you have an existing portfolio of (and continually invent new) tricks and techniques. Of course, you’re the kind of person who thinks that’s hugely fun. So in joining New Relic you’ll also be setting yourself up for non-stop engineering fun. Interested??
We are passionate, possibly even crazy, about application performance management (APM). Our mission is to make web applications run better, to make the internet more productive, and to make life easier for developers and devops. We are turning the APM marketplace upside down by providing SaaS products that deliver high-value functionality previously only available through enterprise software. We are well above 14,000 customers. And with your help we’ll get to 10x that number.
New Relic is a Top 100 OnDemand Company, Best of SaaS (THINKStrategies), Top 100 Coolest Cloud Computing (CRN); 10 Cloud Management Companies to Watch (NetworkWorld); the list of accolades goes on. More important, we provide challenging work, opportunities to learn, high quality teammates, a great product, a company on the move, and . . . the freedom to do your work the way only you can do it.
We offer competitive compensation, pre-IPO stock options, and big-company benefits (medical, dental, vision, life), all while maintaining the energy, agility and fun of a start-up.
New Relic is most decidedly an equal opportunity employer. We seek applicants of diverse background and hire without regard to race, color, gender, religion, national origin, ancestry, citizenship, disability, age, sexual orientation, or any other characteristic protected by law.
To apply please go to the following site and we look forward to talking to you.

Written a lot of C or C++. Pointers are your friends and you have code samples to prove it.
Done something interesting with the meta-programming facilities of a modern dynamic language
A relevant college degree or equivalent experience
