Role Description

This role entails ensuring that our distributed system has multiple 9's of uptime, and is self-recovering in many cases. Failures can occur in multiple places in the system, and understanding the failures and how to prevent them is a key component. A good candidate for this role will be able to reliably investigate under performing components in the system, implement fixes at the code level and discuss architectural fixes with the rest of the team.

About HeadSpin

HeadSpin built the world's largest distributed cloud of real devices that provides thousands of testing hours of user experience to customers daily. We build our infrastructure with custom hardware to improve the speed and cost of deployment, reliability, and data capture abilities of the iOS and Android devices. On this we run continual user experience tests that capture data as the user would see apps and streaming content in the local market. The data is processed with our AI benchmark to identify/quantify user experience issues (e.g. spinners, screen loads, quality drops) and root cause issues (e.g. network configuration, content slowness). The HeadSpin enterprise product is the backbone that supports this, as well as other functional and performance testing needs of dozens of the top companies in the world.

Company Culture

Our customers love our product but also have many requests for new functionality. Engineers are self-motivated and build many components rapidly in order to satisfy customer demand and reduce the load of manually testing the system. We love engineers that are passionate about mobile devices, data visualization, and developer tools!
