More than 3,000 global organizations large and small trust Coupa to transform operating margins, increase efficiencies and growth, optimize cash, and reduce risk.

    Coupa Software is a high-growth SaaS company and market leader in the BSM (Business Spend Management) space. We are in a major growth phase and wish to expand our Network Reliability Engineering team to help transform and scale our leading cloud platform.

    Joining the team as a Lead Network Development Engineer, will provide you the opportunity to make a huge impact and take your career to the next level.

You will be supported through in-house training and certification on our Coupa University platform and through subscriptions with leading learning partners.

    Coupa operates an open and autonomous work culture, where employees are challenged and critical thinking is encouraged. We operate an inverted organization structure, meaning we support our employees, not manage them. This is core to our culture and we do everything we can to foster an entrepreneurial spirit within our team as we strive for personal and organizational excellence.

    • Participate in design reviews and provide network support and leadership to the Engineering organization
    • Bring a development mindset in areas such as managing network infrastructure as code, elimination of toil and a strong sense of accountability and service ownership
    • Evaluate, specify, implement and support network performance, capacity and availability monitoring tools
    • Help to grow the global network function, onboarding new network development engineers and providing technical leadership and setting the team direction
    • Stay up to date with the latest developments in network infrastructure, networking with peers and attending industry events
    • Participate in an on-call rotation as required
    • Occasional travel as needed to perform the job function

    • Can code using Python, Java, Ruby or equivalent languages
    • Is familiar with deploying cloud network infrastructure using Terraform and CloudFormation or has experience with Chef & Ansible
    • Is confident in their ability to own and deliver projects and issues to resolution
    • Has a passion for excellence, is a natural problem solver, and a critical thinker. You should enjoy digging deep to understand issues and like solving hard problems
