Job Details

Salesforce powers some of the largest companies on the globe with its core CRM offering. One of the components of this infrastructure that helps achieve the global scale involves network software that provides optimized and secure connectivity - between our customers and the application, between our data centers and customer applications. The Connectivity and Edge teams are responsible for delivering many of the sophisticated software products that deliver this experience to our customers. As our service and platform grow to fully embrace lights-out operations, single-click deploy to tens of thousands of nodes, and services that self-heal and self-optimize, we have to balance this with global scale and traffic distribution to enhance our end user experience.

We are hiring an Engineering leader for the Edge Control Plane team to drive key products, features and own end-to-end lifecycle of services including live-site responsibilities. Our software stack is based on Java, Spring, Docker, Kubernetes. We are well underway on the path to redefining our software toward cloud native primitives to run in the public cloud. As a part of this journey we are looking for someone who can help us deliver enhanced engineering efficiency by hiring and retaining top notch software developers. We also aim to improve global coverage for our services by building a center of expertise that can shoulder the responsibilities of a global live-site infrastructure.
