  • Location: Remote United States
  • Department: Engineering
  • Work Status: Full-time


Are you looking for a hybrid or remote work opportunity? Are you interested in a workplace that allows for flexibility in your day? Are you ready for a workplace that provides benefits that suit your needs?

The Storage Vertical:

The Storage Vertical is an essential portion of Cloud Engineering, providing Relativity with all of its storage needs. It abstracts away infrastructure management and provides operations with mechanisms by which underlying storage infrastructure is built, operated, vended, and consumed. This Software Engineer will play the role of a leader in the Storage Vertical, driving its overall interests in optimizing infrastructure for efficiency and the satisfaction of all of Relativity's storage requirements.

The File Asset Storage Team (FAST):

Within the Storage Vertical, the File Asset Storage Team (FAST) owns all unstructured data storage needs for the Relativity application. The FAST team manages the internal storage servers upon which all of Relativity relies. We develop and maintain the infrastructure and the control plane that facilitates the provisioning and use of file storage space. We develop storage-layer abstractions to increase our platform's data management capabilities, reduce costs, and increase business agility. Our important challenge: how do we simplify and improve the management of petabyte-scale cloud storage to the delight of our customers and developers?

We are looking to build the next generation of infrastructure. Join us as we leverage cloud-native technologies to respond to the scale of Relativity's increasing growth and to idiosyncratic nature of massive-scale storage. To achieve this, we are using a diverse set of technologies, including Linux, Azure, Kubernetes, Docker, Powershell, C#/.NET, and SQL.

Your Role in Action

  • Contribute to development of low-level systems programming as a Software Engineer (e.g. disk or net IO, operating system, driver, or kernel development)
  • Solve complex storage problems and implement their solutions using cloud native patterns and services
  • Adopt and exercise best practices in developing and delivering software, including test-driven and trunk-based development, as well as continuous integration and deployment
  • Contribute to the product through our development workflow
  • Assess customer requests and troubleshoot incidents when on-call
  • Improve the operational state of the software, striving for observability, reliability, and availability
  • Communicate with team members and partners
  • Identify opportunities for improvement across the stack and promote their solutions
  • Align the offerings with platform expectations and contracts
  • Document our service architecture with well-written design narratives and architectural decision records
  • Maintain a high bar for code and architectural quality

  • Experience in software development
  • Experience developing with C#, and/or .NET Core
  • Experience working in an agile development environment (using Scrum, Kanban)
  • Experience developing with C#, and/or .NET Core
  • Experience running Linux in a production environment
  • Experience working with large-scale storage infrastructure
  • Experience developing and delivering in a continuous deployment environment
  • Experience developing and maintaining RESTful web services
