We emphasize a culture of making good tradeoffs, working as a team, & leaving your ego at the door.
As a Principal Engineer at Bluecore, you will join forces with other cross-functional engineering teams to build scalable, extensible, reliable, & performant systems that provide significant company & industry-level impact. We have clear roadmaps & initiatives, which help us leverage the work we've completed. You'll have ownership over your work, & will be influential in driving the overall growth & success of Bluecore.
We are looking for a Principal Software Engineer to join our Email Pipeline squad, building our end-to-end email pipelines & the 10+ Email Service Provider integrations we maintain. Many of this team's key contributions focus around coordinating the results of campaign executions & personalization options, in order to create 1:1 personalized emails for our client's customers & drive higher ROI from their marketing campaigns. There are several deep technical challenges headed up by this team, including fan-out & fan-in processes for recommendation & email generation & "at most once" delivery of emails.
Our Email Pipeline team members have established themselves as a critical component to the success of Bluecore's products/platform. They've successfully led several major initiatives with considerable company-wide impacts, such as rebuilding our email pipeline for simplicity & extensibility, as well as migrating it onto Google Kubernetes Engine, resulting in substantial cost savings & higher volume throughput. As our client base has grown, we have an increasing need to deliver higher volumes of personalized emails, quickly & efficiently. The Email Pipeline team is focusing on upgrading key components of our email delivery infrastructure in a microservice architecture, to ensure scalability, portability, & maintainability in some of our most critical infrastructure. This has involved rewriting services for rate limiting, distributed counters, recommendation engines, & email generation in order to scale with our growing needs.
It's not enough to develop systems that handle our ever-increasing scale, it's also essential that we do so with high-performance, rock solid code. Reliability is another important piece to the puzzle, & we adopt Site-Reliability Engineering principles for automating deployments & observability at scale. You'll be an influential leader, actively coding while simultaneously helping your team design & implement technical solutions, as well as sourcing & onboarding new technologies to the team.
