A Little About Us

Data is growing at a massive rate, and incoming data is now more and more in the form of real time events. Current data platforms are not designed for real-time data, and application developers are left to piece together 6-10 products in order to build modern applications. We are building the next-generation data fabric for real-time applications - focused on reducing the development and operational complexity of building and running modern applications. This vision is matched by the passion of our team (with experience at Google, Citrix, VMWare, Cloudera, and other internet-scale companies), and after gaining a lot of traction with early design partners, we are looking to scale the team as we launch our product offering.

As a company, we value curiosity, diversity, and transparency. You will get to work on interesting technical challenges, be surrounded by top talent, and build software that most developers will use.

What you will be doing

As a Backend Engineer, you will be responsible for the architecture, design and development of various components in our distributed, fault-tolerant, highly-parallel software infrastructure across multi-cloud and hybrid-cloud environments on both private and public clouds. You will orient your design and efforts towards architecture, system design, component design, unit testing and implementation. You will be very hands-on, and work with others on the engineering team to manage day-to-day development activities, and participate in design and implementation of key capabilities. Our ideal candidate will be passionate about delivering high-quality reliable solutions to complex engineering problems while working within a team.
