You will work with the engineering team and customer support to find and analyze performance bottlenecks and initiate improvements in architecture and underlying code. Your responsibilities will also include leading the development of automated performance tests, analyzing the results and ensuring that our releases meet the target goals for performance. You will work with engineering to develop knowledge base articles that our field and customers can use to optimize the performance of our software.
