The Systems Engineer position will help write, debug, support and invent software that runs the Circonus stack for SaaS and on-premise customers.  We write software mostly in C and C++.

About the Job

  • Work in the office or remotely, or both (but not at the same time)

  • Write software in C and standard build systems (and some other scripting languages)

  • Understand already, or eager to learn Lua

  • Write multi-threaded, event driven code, often lock-free

  • Contribute to the design and scaling of components in the Circonus stack

  • Assist in supporting both the internal development and external use of Circonus software

  • Contribute with little direction from your boss / be a self starter, learner

  • You will work with many other human beings on your team and throughout the organization; well practiced human decency and empathy are required

  • Humans are the ultimate consumer of the software you write, they must be considered in everything you do


  • Write production quality code in multi-threaded and event-driven C and supporting languages

  • Interoperate smoothly with an agile team using version control, CI and testing for safety

  • Solid debugging skills both live and post-mortem

  • Perform code reviews

Circonus is a software company that is changing the way the world monitors both IT infrastructure and the business it powers. Our SaaS and on­-premise solutions enable companies to combine monitoring, alerting, event processing, and predictive analytics into a unified solution. Visualize any data, in any application, from any system, in real-time. Circonus scales from a single team to a worldwide organization that tracks thousands of devices analyzing millions of metrics. API driven automation empowers developers and makes operational teams incredibly efficient, while analytics drive insights that improve organization ­wide performance.

We enjoy a global reach, but our customers primarily cluster on the East Coast, California, and to a lesser degree, Europe. Our success stems from (a) delivering an industry-leading offering and (b) an obsession with customer satisfaction.

Culturally, we operate like a startup. Small, agile teams with quick decisions and short, iterative cycle times. We relish our core values of respect, integrity, value and growth, among others.

All of our positions include a discretionary PTO policy, health insurance, gym reimbursement, a generous 401k, the opportunity for a bonus and more.

Circonus, Inc. prohibits discrimination and harassment of any type and affords equal employment opportunities to employees and applicants without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, genetics, disability status, veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.

  • We’re reinventing delivery!

    Circuit is a distributed SaaS company building a software platform that improves the experience and efficiency of last-mile delivery.

    Our platform spans the entire breadth of the last-mile delivery process, from deciding which packages are to be delivered by which drivers, through optimizing each individual driver's route, all the way to alerting the recipient that their delivery is 5 minutes away from being delivered.

    More than 10,000 drivers at hundreds of companies rely on Circuit to complete their day's work, making ~35M deliveries every year.

    In the future, we envision a consumer platform where individuals can manage, schedule and reschedule the vast majority of their deliveries from one place, regardless of the company carrying out the actual delivery.

    We’re looking to expand our team with an additional senior frontend engineer.

    We’re looking for someone who cares about quality code; beautiful, purposeful design; and that is comfortable working in a remote environment with a lot of autonomy.

    Your Profile/Skills

    • 4+ years of professional experience developing web apps with JavaScript

    • 2+ years of professional experience developing web apps with Ember.js (preferred)

    • Personal side projects, or project ownership experience preferred.

    • Experience working remotely preferred.

    • Circuit is built on top of the Firebase and Google Cloud platform. Our web app is built entirely with Ember.

    • We use GitHub and Jira to get things organized and built.

    How We Work

    • We are a small team of 6, 4 of which are developers.

    • You’ll work alongside our existing front-end developer.

    • We encourage teammates to bring in well-reasoned opinions, productively disagree with us, and to make decisions based on technical merits.

    • We’re obsessed with continuous improvement, and we’re not afraid to scrap work if we figure out a better way to do things.

    • Our web application is still in the early stages, and as a result, we look for opportunities to get 80% of the gain from 20% of the effort, delaying the other 20% for later.

    We offer:

    • ~£60k Salary + Equity

    • The flexibility to explore other disciplines in our stack

    • The ability to work flexibly

    • Swift decision making and flat hierarchies

    • A high degree of autonomy in your work
