If you find these challenges electrifying, we encourage you to apply!

We are looking for a Database Software Engineer to join our team building the next generation of our database platform. You will play an important role in implementing and running our database infrastructure to build a robust and scalable database-as-a-service platform. You will need strong software development and Kubernetes expertise to develop tools and controllers for effective database management.

What you'll do
  • Build an extraordinary database-as-a-service platform that will provide streamlined cloud services for our customers using MySQL, PostgreSQL, Redis, and Kubernetes
  • Write efficient and optimized code to build tools and applications that facilitate database management and orchestration
  • Monitor and optimize databases to ensure high availability, performance, and security
  • Use Kubernetes to develop and maintain controllers for managing databases and related resources
  • Develop automation for database and Kubernetes-related tasks such as provisioning, backup, scaling, and monitoring.
This role requires
  • 2+ years of extensive experience running highly scalable databases and database infrastructure
  • Experience with Kubernetes, including developing and maintaining controllers
  • Knowledge and experience with cloud platforms (e.g., AWS, Google Cloud, Azure) and their managed database services (e.g., RDS, Amazon Aurora)
  • Experience in software development using Go
  • Experience with containerization technologies (Docker)
  • Experience in infrastructure as code frameworks (Terraform)
  • Experience working with Agile methodologies
  • Strong problem-solving skills to address and resolve sophisticated database-related issues
  • Excellent communication skills both verbally and in writing with a passion for growth and collaboration
  • Working proficiency and communication skills in verbal and written English.
Bonus points if you have
  • Proficiency in MySQL, PostgreSQL, and/or Redis including schema design, query optimization, and performance tuning.
  • Experience in cloud DBaaS production environments
  • Familiarity with Crossplane or similar tools for controlling cloud-managed services

We're looking for bold and passionate people to be a part of our mission to help every engineer do their best work, every day, using data, not opinions, at every stage of the software lifecycle. We'd love to have you apply, even if you don't feel you meet every single requirement. What's most important to us is finding authentic and accountable people who feel connected to our mission and values, not just candidates who check off all the boxes.
