Heroku operates the world’s largest PaaS cloud, continuously delivering millions of apps with a high volume of deploys per day. Our vision is for developers to focus on their applications, and leave operations to us.

The Heroku1 team builds tools and products to integrate the Heroku platform with large-scale enterprise systems.

To augment this team, we’re looking for creative and analytic engineers with a passion for solving problems at scale. You will be responsible for architecting, developing, testing and deployment of user-facing applications and tools. You will collaborate with the team to implement application requirements and deploy applications into production. There will be significant opportunities to collaborate with other teams at Heroku (platform engineering, web apps, etc...).

That means:

  • Designing and implementing new server-side features
  • Creating and implementing test plans for feature and scalability testing
  • Working with the Heroku1 team to implement the operations plan for our applications
  • Working with other teams at Heroku to integrate our applications into the Heroku platform
  • Ensuring that we are continuously raising our standard of engineering excellence by implementing best practices for coding, testing and deploying
  • This is primarily a "server side" development position

Key Capabilities

Qualified candidates must have:

  • Demonstrated a commitment to a high standard of software quality and best practices
  • Advanced Python experience
  • SQL expertise (PostgresSQL or MySQL)
  • Experience building and consuming APIs
  • Good understanding of Linux fundamentals
  • Experience working with high traffic systems in production

Bonus points for...

  • Distributed systems experience (asynchronous processing, messaging systems, concurrency models)
  • Other languages (Ruby, Node, Go)
  • Experience with AWS or other cloud infrastructure


Heroku is headquartered in San Francisco, California. For this position, we are open to candidates in other locations in North America given sufficient remote work experience.

About Heroku

Heroku is a thriving start-up owned by Salesforce.com, based in SOMA, San Francisco. Our work environment is fun and flexible while also ruthlessly focused on technical excellence and customer success. Our growing group offers lots of opportunities for hyper talented, self- motivated, no-drama and no-nonsense individuals who share our belief that cloud architectures are dramatically changing web application development and deployment, and want to be part of the vanguard of this movement.
