Senior Backend Software Engineer at New Relic
Tel Aviv, IL

At New Relic, we are the proud market leader for solutions providing deep insights into our clients’ applications’ behavior and performance. With our SaaS-based application performance monitoring (APM) solution, we have our customers' backs by instrumenting their applications and reporting issues, often before the customer is aware that there are any problems. We give our customers as much information as possible to help them tune their system’s reliability and performance.

We are looking for a Senior Backend Software Engineer to join our fast growing Incident Intelligence team based in our Tel Aviv Office. We are a team of interdisciplinary specialists. Our atmosphere is of a startup backed up by a successful corporation. The team is responsible for what we believe is the future of our field: assimilating huge amounts of data and AI’ing the heck out of it in order to help our customers solve problems quickly and efficiently. Our product enables automatic monitoring of applications while reducing alert noise by correlating them into bigger issues. We also use past data to automatically identify the correct responders to incidents. Our vision is to be able to fix some problems magically without bothering anyone! For a proud parent of an app or server, we want to be the most perfect Au Pair anyone can imagine!


Are a passionate collaborator who can reason and communicate your opinions, as well as accept others’ approaches. You’re proactive, never taking the present state for granted and always striving to understand why things are done the way they are. You’re a clean coder with readable, simple, and maintainable code.

You quickly grasp large & complex systems and their inner workings. You’re experienced with software engineering best practices (testing, code reviews, immutability, etc.). You’re deeply familiar with the tools, libraries, and frameworks that you’ve worked with and feel at home in production environments. Also, you are prepared and accepting to receive many TikTok videos filled with cuteness from an overly engaged team member.

What You'll Do

  • Design, develop and test production-grade components within a micro-service architecture implemented in Python.
  • Collaborate with Engineers, Product Managers, designers, and other partners to frame problems within the business and product context.
  • Own engineering initiatives for multiple backend components and projects.
  • Contribute to the product technical design, architecture and implementation of our backend components
