What will you do?

Do you really believe in “changing the world”? If the answer is yes, we would like to offer you an opportunity to work on new functionalities in our database performance management and optimization product, which is one of the top products of SolarWinds.

You can't get application performance without database performance. Maintaining the database performance is a complex problem that requires the right tool.

In Brno we are currently developing new functionality you will definitely hear about in the future.

You will be the member of top Database Performance engineering team. Your colleagues will be talented engineers working according to agile (SCRUM) principles who like to code, create smart and simple solutions, and explore new technologies.

Above all, our R&D department has several respected database management geeks like Thomas LaRock where you’ll have direct access to some of the brightest minds in the industry in our highly collaborative office space.

While working as a Senior Developer across all layers and components of our project, you will participate on creating new delightful features. All new features are designed with primary focus on application performance.

The tools we use on daily basis are: Jira, Bitbucket and TeamCity for continuous delivery model, IntelliJ IDEA or Eclipse IDE as a development environment and Confluence portal for collaboration and documentation.

Additionally, we will be examining cutting edge technologies that will push our products’ excellence level even higher. If you have the same passion for technology as we do, you have just found the right place!


What do we expect you to know/have?

We want you to have commercial experience in software design and development focused on product development and be able to design complex features without supervision. Also, it would be helpful if you had some experience with database management.

You need to have skills to develop clean code. You’ll follow commonly used best practices e.g. unit testing and automation testing.

Most of all we want you to be an enthusiastic, talented and happy engineer, developing great products, just as we are. We also want you to share your unique knowledge and experience with other colleagues in the team.

Also, because you are reading this job description in English you should have fluent written and verbal English skills as we are a multinational company.

The primary key for us is that you are a team player and hard worker still willing to gain new skills.
