Your Opportunity

At New Relic, we provide our customers with real-time insights, so they can innovate faster. Our software delivers insightful observability tools across different technologies and distributed systems, enabling software engineering teams to quickly identify, understand and tackle issues, analyze performance and get the most of their software and infrastructure.

You will work with some of the best engineers and some of the most ambitious projects in the industry. And we are a fast-growing software company that cares about our product and culture.

If you love technical challenges and want to contribute to one of the largest and fastest-growing observability platforms in the market, we want to hear from you: New Relic is looking for a Software Engineer to join our Infrastructure Instrumentation organization in Europe. This organization develops and maintains instrumentation agents and integrations for a wide range of products, including Kubernetes, Cassandra, etc... All the development is open source, usually in Go, and we also contribute to other open-source projects.

This role is an outstanding opportunity. It will initially focus on scaling our support by applying software to remove toil, by assisting our customers on complex issues, and by inventing tools and processes. This in turn provides a great path towards a more usual product engineering role if relevant.

What You’ll Do

  • Use software engineering to streamline, automate and help scale support for infrastructure integrations
  • Work directly within a multidisciplinary team to help our customers and partners.
  • Research new tools and services to understand complex scenarios and to also propose new features.
  • Participate in architectural definitions with a high degree of innovation and creativity.
  • Work in an agile environment with a DevOps approach—teams build and maintain their own software, including participating in on-call rotations.

Your Qualifications


  • A strong motivation to work in partnership with our customers.
  • Experience in writing software, preferably using Go, but other languages are also relevant (e.g. Java, Python...). In any case, you are not afraid of adapting, learning, and working with different languages and frameworks.
  • Being comfortable in a fast-paced environment focused on delivering production code at a regular cadence using Agile techniques, tools and methodologies.
  • Having a collaborative work style that includes colleagues in important decisions and leads to shared code ownership
  • Fluency in English


  • Experience developing monitoring products
  • Upstream contributions to relevant open source projects (e.g. Kubernetes, Prometheus, DBs, HTTP servers, etc).
  • Experience in technical mentorship and support for helping level-up the skills of colleagues on the team.

Please note that visa sponsorship is not available for this position.
