What’s It Like Being a Software Engineer in Leading Cloud Infrastructure Company?

Friday, February 17th, 2012 by

According to Wikipedia, a Software Engineer is “an engineer who applies the principles of software engineering to the design, development, testing, and the evaluation of the software and systems that make computers or anything containing software…

Software Engineers are everywhere and in about every company out there. They are in high demand and GoGrid is no exception. We want Software Engineers! What makes working at GoGrid exciting for a Software Engineer? I asked one of our Software Engineers, Suman, a few questions about what it’s like to be a Software Engineer for GoGrid.

What do you do at GoGrid?

I work on cloud software solutions, which, in a nutshell, means turning infrastructure into code. It’s a rapidly growing software development area with very interesting challenges. There is a long list of products with great customer interest. New use cases and requirements arise frequently that become new features or products. It’s very exciting to work in a transforming environment like this.

As a Software Engineer, I am deeply involved in all aspects of my projects. I focus equally on design and architecture, development and testing. Given my experience with Linux and large scale infrastructure automation, I like to engage closely with Systems and Network Engineers to keep up with new technologies. This helps to develop elegant, feature-rich and high-performing solutions.

What does your typical day look like?

New Feature: Job History – A Log File for GoGrid

Friday, April 10th, 2009 by

Many GoGrid users may have noticed a new tab that has appeared within the GoGrid Web Interface. The new "Jobs" tab is a great new addition for those who want details on any action or activity that has taken place on an object (e.g., Server, Load Balancer, Cloud Storage) within their GoGrid account.

Think of this new section as your GoGrid log file. It keeps track of actions that you have made on objects in your account, broken down chronologically. In fact, since we have been keeping an internal log for some time, many of your older activities prior to the release of this feature will show up in your log. Also, if you use the GoGrid API, any requests made through the API show up in the Job section as well.

GoGrid actions that are currently tracked are:

  • Add Server
  • Delete Server
  • Restart Server
  • Add Load Balancer
  • Delete Load Balancer
  • Add Cloud Storage

All actions are also logged with the following information:

  • Date & Time (UTC timestamp – a good time converter can be found here)
  • Action Details
  • Action Status
  • User that requested the action
