Developer Productivity Engineer

Fitbit, Romania - Bucharest

Stay motivated and improve your health by tracking your activity, exercise, food, weight and sleep

At Fitbit, our mission is to help people lead healthier, more active lives by empowering them with data, inspiration and guidance to reach their goals.

We started our journey in 2007 as a team of two with one big idea. Today, that idea has become a movement. Fitbit is now a publicly traded company creating award-winning products and services that are available across the globe. We’re transforming the way the world sees health & fitness. In fact, the Fitbit Community has taken enough steps to walk from the Sun to Pluto.

Our culture combines the spirit of startup with the advantages of being public, offering a competitive benefits package and amazing perks. As part of our team, you’ll have the opportunity to grow your career, contribute your ideas to life-changing products and services, and above all have fun doing it.

In our newest Fitbit office in Bucharest, located in the heart of the city, we are planning to build on the foundation laid by the Vector Watch team. We are looking to keep growing and this role will be fundamental to the continued success of Fitbit as we build exciting new products and services.

About the team

The Developer Productivity team is responsible for the build, testing, and deployment of Fitbit services from developer laptops to 1000s of servers. We aim to make it simple to reliably build and deploy reliable services. Everything we do towards that goal helps all the other engineers at Fitbit, so our efforts are a multiplier for everyone else’s efforts.

To do this, we’re building an integrated system for build, continuous integration, and deploy that allows teams to do all those things easily out of the box, while allowing them to be customized for individual use cases. To make that work, we provide a scalable, reliable infrastructure for the whole pipeline, along with clients to easily view and understand its status.

Finally, we support these tools and the teams’ use of them. That includes being on call for our infrastructure, responding to individual developer’s requests, meeting with teams to gather their needs, and evangelizing our work to have it be effectively used.

What You’ll Work On: 

As a member of the Fitbit Developer Productivity team you get to play a few different roles:

  • Designer: We determine how the overall build process should work together among multiple teams
  • Developer: We build new systems to extend the build process, and improve existing ones to make it simpler, faster, and more reliable
  • Consultant: We meet with all the development teams at Fitbit to understand what they need to create features
  • Educator: We teach other developers what our tools can do and how to use them

Required Skills:

  • 4+ years of experience as a software engineer
  • Experience with creating and maintaining builds
  • Server-side Java knowledge
  • Skills to diagnose failures somewhere in the path from a build to a deployment
  • Ability to work across teams to build tools that support all of them.

Nice-to-Have Skills:

  • Experience with continuous integration systems (e.g. Jenkins)
  • Experience with Gradle

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
