Job summary

The Red Hat Engineering team is looking for a Senior Software Engineer to join us in Westford, MA. In this role, you will work with the Quarkus team but also engage with other Red Hat Middleware product teams to help them push requirements into Quarkus and use Quarkus. Recently Red Hat created the Quarkus, a next generation Kubernetes-native Java stack and framework. It is based on many existing Red Hat and JBoss projects that have been re-architected to take into account Kubernetes-specific requirements like immutable architectures. Quarkus is a Kubernetes-native Java framework tailored for GraalVM and HotSpot, crafted from best-of-breed Java libraries and standards like Istio and Eclipse MicroProfile. As stated, whilst Quarkus is optimised for Kubernetes and OpenJDK Hotspot, it also utilised GraalVM, and specifically SubstrateVM, to compile Java to native executables, making it a better runtime for serverless and Functions-as-a-Service (FaaS) environments. All Red Hat Middleware offerings are now looking to adopt Quarkus either directly within their developer environments or as an enabler to achieve better Kubernetes integration.

Primary job responsibilities

  • Work with various teams using Quarkus and with the Quarkus team

  • Support the design and development of core modules, components and APIs for Quarkus, and projects building upon Quarkus

  • Work with the quality engineering (QE) team to ensure that Quarkus-related projects are tested correctly

  • Submit patches for bug fixes to the community; review patches from other community members
