  • You are a motivated self starter with a bias towards action

  • Collaboration and communication: The smallest unit we have is a team. You'll be working with your teammates in a fully remote setup. Good communication skills are a must
  • Solid experience with at least one programming language. We use Go, but if you have familiarity with Python, C, C++, Rust or similar then that translates well

  • Some experience with developing software that runs in the Cloud or some experience with systems engineering
  • Experience writing clean, robust, and performant software that is easily maintained by others
Responsibilities
  • Take an active role in influencing our roadmap and your own career objectives
  • Work with your team to deliver new features, then use the results to iterate and improve
  • Drive projects from initial ideation all the way to operations once it is in the hands of customers
  • Embrace our open-source culture and contribute to other projects that may not directly fall within your team's scope
  • Design, build, operate, and maintain critical systems, owning the reliability, performance, and availability
  • Be a part of your team's on-call rotations and take ownership of the services you're running
  • Mentor and support other team members, participate in design discussions and collaborate with the team
  • Learn new skills by gaining a deeper understanding of our cloud product and our customers and getting to know the codebase of a large distributed system
Desired Qualifications
  • Experience working with Kubernetes
  • Been a user of Grafana and Prometheus in operational roles (including on-call for your team at a previous employer or just using these tools on hobby/homelab projects)
  • Exposure to microservices architecture and distributed systems, or a desire to learn
  • Familiarity with being on-call and perfoming operations/SRE tasks or with the concept of infrastructure as code
