The Monitoring Team at PayPal is responsible for providing world-class platform that can collect, ingest, store, alert and visualize data from many different sources in PayPal – like application logs, infrastructure, Virtual Machines, Containers, Network, Load Balancers etc. The platform should provide functionalities that enables different teams in PayPal to gain business insights and debugging/triaging of issues in an easy-to-use and intuitive and self-service manner. The platform should be scalable to support the data needs for PayPal (fortune 500 company); be highly available at 99.9% or higher; be reliable and fault-tolerant across the different physical data centers and thousands for micro services. The Monitoring team is looking to evaluate solutions available out of the box externally OR to build solutions internally that can support the needs of such a platform. We are looking for a passionate, talented Architect to who can help give direction towards the evaluation, building and adoption of this next generation Monitoring platform at PayPal. Prior experience in evaluation and adoption of a Monitoring platform in a similar company as PayPal (which operates at the global scale) would be a great skill. The existing monitoring platform is built using a mix of proprietary solutions and open-source framework and technologies like Flink, Kafka, Java, GoLang, HBase, OpenTSDB, Elastic Search and Druid. Good understanding of these technologies to evaluate and understand benefits and drawbacks for choosing one over the other would be greatly helpful. A successful candidate will require strong understanding of the monitoring domain, industry trends for monitoring and also be hands-on with programming skills. He should have sound working knowledge of dev-sec-ops, understanding of cloud technologies, automation systems, data centers, load balancing, as well as excellent communication and planning skills. The architect will be responsible for the long-term reliability and scalability of the system and will be involved in making sure that the right architecture is implemented to avoid/minimize the day-to-day support work to keep the systems up and running. If you are passionate about systems design, scaling beyond 99.9% reliability and working in a highly dynamic environment with a team of smart and talented engineers then this is the job for you. As a Senior Architect on the Monitoring Team, you will provide technical and architectural leadership for the team, mentor others, and use your understanding of the business domains to help shape technical requirements and solutions. It is expected that you are an expert technical leader who is able to operate in a high performing team, that you can creatively balance high quality delivery with customer focus to meet business needs, that you have excellent communication skills, and that you have a continuous record of delivering results in a fast-paced environment.
