Solarwinds Inc. Senior .Net Developer in Vancouver, British Columbia


AppOptics is the distributed tracing and metric aggregation SaaS product that is part of the SolarWinds Cloud portfolio, providing customers unparalleled insight into their cloud infrastructure and applications.

The agents that feed AppOptics’ analytics run inside customer application processes, automatically instrumenting them to gather distributed tracing data and other performance analytics, while having minimal or no performance impact so they’re safe to run in high-traffic production environments.

We are looking for someone who has a lot of experience with the .NET ecosystem primarily in C# -- with bonus points for programming at the unmanaged C++ level.

You also like wearing different hats, from software design, implementation and testing, to using the latest in cloud, build/test and containerization technologies to automate the entire delivery process.

  • Develop low-overhead instrumentation to gather performance data from critical application infrastructure

  • Optimize system agent behavior for memory, network, and processor utilization

  • Ensure high quality components through good development practices, including design and peer code reviews, and unit testing.

  • Write robust, readable code that will run on thousands of customer machines

  • Experience writing performant web applications in one or more server-side languages

  • Sc. in Engineering or Computer Science or equivalent education
