Performance Optimization Engineer

Sensibill is lighting up the FinTech industry with mobile solutions that change the way people interact with their purchases and enable corporations to make critical insights. We are looking to expand our team with a detail oriented, creative, and passionate Performance Optimization Engineer. 

We’re looking for a performance engineer to work with our architects to ensure our system can scale to meet the demands of our growing customer base. A developer who uses performance measurement data along with a toolbag of optimization techniques to tune all aspects of our system. Someone with general chops in performance engineering vs. specific performance skills in a particular database or programming language.

If you are a performance or optimization developer/engineer seeking the chance to make an impact on a company, a solution, and the end users, all while building a career for yourself, this is the opportunity to consider. If you are excited by mobile, cloud, big data, analytics, and anything #fintech, this is the company for you!

Here’s what our new Performance Optimization Engineer will do:

  • Measure. Expand our load and stress testing infrastructure to measure performance of our service.
  • Diagnose. Implement the appropriate diagnostic tools to identify performance issues in our production environments and help us exceed SLAs with our customers.
  • Recommend. Review our system architecture and recommend changes from the perspective of performance.
  • Plan. Help further develop our scale out plan and understand the points of inflection that will require architectural changes to our system.
  • Develop. Create tooling to measure performance as well as making code level optimizations in our software.
  • Model. Model the performance of our system under various loads to help identify the capacity requirements based on traffic projections.

Who are you?

  • An experienced software developer. Your background is in computer science, math or engineering. You have 3 - 5 years of relevant experience in the information technology industry, with at least 3 years focused on performance improvements.
  • A performance enthusiast. You are always looking at ways to optimize systems and have experience in using application performance monitoring tools.
  • An experimenter. You love to experiment to try out new ideas, rapidly test hypotheses, gather data, learn, and iterate.
  • A bonus points seeker. You may have implemented performance optimizations for systems built using Node.js and/or MongoDB.

What We're Looking For:

It’s not always the technical qualifications that matter most. We’re looking for someone who also has the soft skills that enable the entire team to be successful. You will be successful if you are:

  • The epitome of balance. You are technical and creative. Detail oriented yet can see the big picture. You are a thinker and a doer.
  • Confident. You are confident in learning new things quickly and are willing to share what you have learned with others.
  • Collaborative. You are a team player who seeks and provides feedback and help. You are happy to get your hands dirty and do the work, not just manage it.

Why should you join Sensibill?

We love pie. We are fun. We are guided by conscientiousness.

Our culture is like that perfect piece of pie; humble and delivers exactly what you expect. Why pie? That’s our acronym. We are all about passion, integrity, excellence. We like to have fun, and share the love. So for your birthday, we will treat you to a slice of your favourite pie. Actually, we get a few of them to celebrate together. We deal with highly secure and confidential data, information we have to treat with respect, this – consideration and conscientiousness - pervades our culture. From how we come to decisions to how we have conversations with each other.

Joining a start-up in the early days is pretty much the greatest adventure you can go on. We are lean, smart, fun, and we live for balance – there are no mandatory 60-hour weeks here. This is not a top-down culture. We want everyone’s input during critical decisions. To that end, if you have ideas, we want to hear them. Together we can build out and shape not just your role and your team, but our company. We want new core team members who want to invest in us the way we invest in them. We want your ideas, energy, skills, dedication, and if you have any, we’ll take your #streetreceipts too.
