What if you could use your technology skills to develop a product that impacts the way communities’ hospitals, homes, sports stadiums, and schools across the world are built? Construction impacts the lives of nearly everyone in the world, and yet it’s also one of the world’s least digitized industries, not to mention one of the most dangerous. That’s why we’re looking for a talented Principal Kafka Engineer to join Procore’s journey to revolutionize a historically underserved industry.

As a Principal Kafka Engineer, you’ll join a highly skilled team of Site Reliability, Security, Data Administration, and Production Engineering disciplines dispersed across our Carpinteria, CA, and Austin, TX offices. You’ll provide architectural guidance, mentorship, and hands-on support for all things related to Procore’s cloud-based Kafka systems. You’ll help lead strategic initiatives across the organization while also conducting a range of system management work including managing uptime, event integrity, disaster recovery, self-healing and alerting, and event reporting. 

This position will report to the manager of our Data Administration squad and has the opportunity to be located in any of our US offices. Remote candidates will be considered based on experience. We’re looking for someone to join us immediately.

What you’ll do:

  • Work closely with Site Reliability, Security, and Development teams to ensure best practices are followed and architecture patterns are aligned with the requirements
  • Leverage subject matter and technical expertise to provide leadership, mentoring, and strategic influence across the organization
  • Provide hands-on support for all event-based systems including incident triage and root cause analysis
  • Support on-call participation, planning and change management, detailed runbooks, and documentation
  • Effectively prioritize and organize tasks and deliver business-driven decisions under pressure
  • Efficiently execute daily operational tasks including administration, performance monitoring, triage, ad-hoc walk-ups, and project milestones
  • Assist in designing event-based architecture, holding design reviews, building and troubleshooting databases, as well as digging deep into the root of an issue and providing solutions
  • Provide configuration and maintenance support for production and development environments
  • Assist Application Developers with optimization and tuning
  • Generate and maintain scripts to automate common operational and maintenance tasks
  • Identify performance trends and opportunities, and deploy proactive corrective measures to minimize downtime
  • Work across our tech stack of Ruby on Rails, PostgreSQL, AWS, Kafka, S3, Snowflake, and more

What we are looking for:

  • BS degree in Computer Science or equivalent practical experience
  • 5+ years of of experience in Kafka or combined experience of 6+ years of Kafka and other message broker or event-driven technologies
  • 4+ years of experience working within a Cloud infrastructure environment, on-premise or remote 
  • Development experience in Java or Python
  • Production infrastructure and operations background
  • Experience working quickly, efficiently, and with keen attention to detail at a fast-paced company where services are available 24/7/365
  • Possess a strong understanding that automation is essential, and proactively push boundaries in areas like self-healing conditions and alerts
  • Strong Experience with Kafka is desired
  • Experience with ETL, data warehouse, data lake, message-brokering, and event-based architecture
  • Strong technical hands-on experience in delivering projects
  • Possess a natural wonder for technology including AWS and docker and automation 
  • Experience using the following tools is desirable:
    • AWS, GCP, Azure
    • Linux Experience
    • AWS MSK, Kafka, RabbitMQ 
    • Containers and Container Management (Docker, Kubernetes)
    • Config Management
    • Log aggregation tools ( SumoLogic, Splunk, Kibana )

An Insider's view of Procore Technologies

How does your team reward individual success?

After managing a small group when I first joined Honest Buildings, I was given the opportunity to build out a department and team from scratch. I learned a ton throughout the process and was supported at all times. The leadership at Honest Buildings works hard to recognize individual success and cares deeply about every employee's happiness.

Jeb

Director of Business Development

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

As we expand, we are implementing infrastructure and application based solutions to ensure all of our customers have a world class experience, guaranteeing our users across the globe can use our product in a fast and reliable manner. We're constantly researching security vulnerabilities and implementing best practices to fully protect the product.

Lalita

Site Reliability Engineer

How does the company support your career growth?

The mentorship I've gained at Honest Buildings has championed me to speak up for what I want out of my career. Honest Buildings has taught me how to advocate for myself, given me the courage needed to pitch ideas, and an environment where I feel supported if I choose to explore those ideas.

Chelsi

User Experience Designer

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Every single person in Honest Buildings contributes to creating our company goals. We have a huge opportunity to put into place things that haven’t been created yet. If someone sees an opportunity and they want to work to fill that gap, we give them all the resources they need to help grow the company (and themselves) as much as possible.

Crystal

Chief Brand and Performance Officer

What are some things you learned at the company?

What makes Honest Buildings such a great place to work is the opportunity to continue learning. I can always tell my team and my manager something I'm interested in, and they will work hard to carve room for me to learn a new skill or method. This is especially importantly on the engineering team, as technology is evolving every day.
