About the Role

As a Developer Experience Engineer at Riskified’s infrastructure group, you will be part of a team of talented developers, working in a truly Agile environment where code is deployed several times a day and utilizing cutting-edge technologies.
Developer Experience Engineers manage the developer toolchain to maximize productivity and drive down development cycle time. You will work closely with developers to understand their needs, produce tools that suit the requirements, and troubleshoot issues. Our Engineering teams are growing very quickly, so solid tooling and a smooth developer experience are critical to support this growth. This role is best for curious, generalist programmers with a strong customer service orientation and interests in developer tooling and documentation. We are a small, focused, and rapidly growing team with an abundance of growth and impact opportunities.
There will be many new and unexpected problems, and we need someone who can do the required research/networking to propose well-thought-out solutions.
We write many of our own tools and remain nimble by putting automation and software at the forefront of everything we do. We primarily use Golang, but the specific language(s) you're comfortable with are less important than a desire to solve problems with code.
