Software Engineering
Hyderabad, Telangana, India

About the Team:
The Dev Tooling team builds systems to increase developer productivity and improve system reliability across all of Outreach. We own developer environments, CI/CD, system observability, shared libraries, and shared frameworks. This is a wide charter with technical depth that acts as the oil keeping the Outreach software development engine running smoothly.
This team is a team of generalists, with specializations. With the wide charter, you may find yourself spending a morning building a logging library, and the afternoon helping a team design an efficient way to run integration tests in a production-like environment. We spend our time alternating between helping our engineering customers with immediate issues and developing features with long-term impact - a great environment if you like quick wins mixed in with larger investments. The wide charter also means there are myriad opportunities to expand your knowledge and skills, both on the technical front and in product design. If wide leeway to improve developer productivity and production reliability sounds exciting to you, come talk to us!
