Job Description

Our goal is to build a robust, high performing, and scalable data platform that can support transactional, analytical, and various other workloads our customers deploy. Our data platform engineering team is responsible for building the core engines, persistence layer and tools supporting these use cases. This includes developing in-memory and on-disk data structures and algorithms, row/columnar stores, and caches. Given the ServiceNow platform footprint, even the smallest optimization can have a dramatic impact for our customers and our bottom line.

We are looking for systems level engineers who have experience with low level storage, memory, and CPU optimization to help us achieve those goals. You will work directly with other engineers on the Data Platform team in solving challenging problems in scaling and querying large data sets efficiently both vertically and horizontally.

  • • Be part of a team of super-smart engineers building the next-gen database platform using and contributing to the latest open-source technologies
  • • Analyze storage/memory/compute performance and scalability bottlenecks in the system to provide appropriate solutions
  • • Improve reliability and observability by designing and building self-diagnostic and self-healing system capabilities
  • • Build modules to efficiently manage multiple processes (startup/monitor/restart/shutdown) in both vertical and horizontal scale


What you bring to this role:

  • • Bachelor’s/Master’s/PhD degree in Computer Science or equivalent, with deep knowledge of Operating systems or Database systems
  • • Experience working on OS kernel, memory manager, and/or multi-threaded software modules
  • • 5+ years of software development experience coding in C, C++, or equivalent low-level languages
  • • Strong technical skills with a proven record of architecture (SMP/MPP) & design experience in building large scale distributed systems
  • • Experience with cloud architecture is a plus
  • • Ability to handle multiple competing priorities in a fast-paced environment
  • • Excellent written, verbal communication and Inter-Personal skills with the ability to present complex technical information in a clear and concise manner to a variety of audiences
