Job Description

Job Description

Email is one of the most critical communication channels for Zendesk. Our system sends and receives millions of emails a day and our customers rely on us to keep the processing times fast and maintain high outbound delivery rates. The email team is a core product group that does platform, operational, and feature work.

A typical sprint will have team members:

* Tuning the configuring of AWS services and building Lambdas for sending and monitoring outbound email
* Working with the abuse team to help manage spam
* Improving our monitoring and alerting systems to give us better visibility and decrease noise
* Building new features to improve customer and end-user experience
* Presenting work to the team or the broader Zendesk product organization
* Chasing down and fix production bugs and bottlenecks

About you:

* You are curious and love solving hard problems
* You are mature, empathetic, and have strong communication skills
* Colleagues describe your code as beautifully clean, efficient, and maintainable
* You have deep experience with at least one dynamic language, preferably Ruby
* You know your way around relational and key-value datastores
* You have experience working on large-scale, business-critical systems

Some nice-to-haves:

* You have prior experience working on the front-end (React/Redux an even greater nice-to-have)
* You have ops experience and have worked with Docker and K8s on bare metal or VMs
* You are familiar with email standards (and how they're broken)
* You understand or have worked with SPF, DKIM & DMARC
* You have a Bachelor's (and/or graduate) degree in Computer Science or related
