About LaunchDarkly

LaunchDarkly is a Feature Management Platform that serves over 100 billion feature flags daily to help software teams build better software, faster. Feature flagging is an industry best practice of wrapping a new or risky section of code or infrastructure change with a flag. Each flag can easily be turned off independent of code deployment (aka ”dark launching”).

Job Description

As an SDK Engineer, you will help us build our platform support. You'll own a subset of our SDKs which add LaunchDarkly’s functionality into customers' applications.

  • Write well-tested and well-organized production-quality code, with an emphasis on maintainability

  • Identify areas of improvement and advocate for best practices

  • Have an active voice in shaping both technology and product decisions

Basic Qualifications:

  • Polyglot background— fluency in at least one programming language, and an ability to context switch quickly between languages

  • Experience building and maintaining client applications or libraries

  • Strong communication and collaboration skills, a positive attitude, and empathy

  • Self‐starter and problem solver, willing to solve difficult problems and work independently when necessary
