We're looking for passionate engineers who will join us in reinventing how databases are deployed, used, and protected.
The Department of Data is a team that provides performant data services in a highly dynamic environment.

You will write tools to reliably operate thousands of servers including automated backups, disaster recovery, high availability, orchestration, monitoring systems, configuration management, security and much more. If you have passion for data storage and management, intuition for code maintainability, and care about making customers succeed, get in touch.
The stack for day-to-day operations includes Ruby with Sequel and Sinatra, Python and some bash. This role requires interfacing with AWS services (EC2, S3, VPC and so on), writing and maintaining scalable system administration and monitoring, and working with Postgres infrastructure at scale. Beyond that, you should be excited to learn any of these skills:
  • Go, Python and Bash
  • Other databases (Redis, Cassandra, Kafka)
  • Unix tools and services
  • LXC containerization, Docker
  • Information security
In addition to seeing your resume, we'd like to get to know you. In your resume please consider including:
