Senior Software Engineer

Full-Time, San Francisco Bay Area & Remote

BuildBuddy was founded to make developers more productive. Today we're solving a small piece of this problem with an open-core remote build execution platform for Bazel - but our ambitions are much larger. Our mission is to take the world class engineering tools that are only available to employees of large companies and make them available to everyone.

We're looking for generalist software engineers to help us fulfill this mission. You'll work across our stack (Golang, Typescript, React, Bazel, Protobuf) to build the next generation of engineering tools. From driving large technical projects to understanding the nitty gritty details of the Bazel build event protocol - you'll have your fingerprints all over our open-source and internal codebases.

This is a unique opportunity to shape the future of how engineers build and test software.

You will

  • Design, build, test, deploy, and maintain reliable software
  • Debug complex production issues across the stack
  • Plan for the growth of our platform and infrastructure
  • Build a great customer experience for our users (other engineers!)

We're looking for someone who

  • Is comfortable with ambiguity and working outside of their comfort zone
  • Can manage priorities well when there's a lot to be done
  • Holds yourself and others to a high bar when working with production
  • Is able to write high quality code in a programming language (e.g. Golang, Typescript).
