You will be contributing to this team with your drive, vast experience in development and wide knowledge and broad interest in IT. Instead of developing ‘us-too’ products, you will make a difference by combining new and proven technologies and algorithms producing ground-breaking products. The team will be fully responsible from conception for all parts concerning the product, including e.g. QA and DevOps till release 1, which will then be transferred to the Engineering teams.


Your responsibilities will include analyzing requirements, designing solutions, implementing the code and tests for new products. You and your team members will work closely together as equals and report directly to the VP Product Innovation Team.
As an engineer at SolarWinds you can influence the product on all levels starting from usability, high-level technical architecture to implementation details.
