Job Description

The Mission

The Developer Tools team provides the core set of tools that help Databricks engineers go from idea to production. Tools for reading code, writing code, iterative development, testing, code review, continuous integration & deployment, Dev-Tools’ job is to provide a world-class developer environment so our fellow engineers can do their best work of their careers while working at Databricks.

On Dev-Tools team, you will:

  • Accelerate the rate at which your colleagues iterate on code and deliver features to customers using the Databricks Platform or Databricks Runtime
  • Interact with engineers all across the organization, deeply understanding their work so you can make their lives better
  • Become an expert in many more systems, languages and tools than you may normally be comfortable with
  • Have leverage and impact: any improvement in efficiency, productivity or happiness pays for itself many times over when multiplied across the entire organization.

  • Passionate about developer experience: you want tools to be fast, CLIs intuitive, giving your colleagues (and yourself) the best experience possible doing development at Databricks.

The team deals with a variety of environments from Kubernetes services to Jenkins automation, Scala libraries to Python scripting, writing graph algorithms to debugging 3rd-party Javascript, Dev-Tools does it all.
  • Able to quickly learn their way around unfamiliar codebases: Dev-Tools routinely dives into unfamiliar third-party projects (in unfamiliar languages!), pushing them far beyond what they say they can do “on the box”
