Software Engineer - Developer Infrastructure

Job type Full-time Company Robinhood Location California - CA, New York - NY, Washington - WA


As Robinhood's Developer Infrastructure organization, we increase the efficiency, velocity, reliability, and scalability of Robinhood Engineering!

We help engineers write code. We speed up getting code out of an engineer's head and into customers’ hands safely. We drive consistency across platforms and toolchains. We enable product engineers to focus completely on what code to write rather than how to write that code. We find, fix, and prevent issues during the development cycle rather than in production.

We see engineering as a whole and drive systemic improvements to our development process and culture. We sweep up and janitor anything which is generally painful. We are the last line of defense if something is wrong in engineering.
