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. We manage one of the largest collections of databases in the world, and you could have an impact on the developers' experiences by designing and implementing simple, intuitive workflows for running databases and interacting with their data.
In this role you will work directly on automating operations behind our database-as-a-service platforms, focused specifically on Cassandra operations. 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 experience operating Cassandra at scale, have passion for data storage and management, intuition for code maintainability, and care about making customers succeed, get in touch.
You should be familiar with Cassandra operations, and be excited to learn any of these skills:
- Go, Ruby, Python and Bash
- Amazon web services (EC2, S3, VPC, and so on)
- Databases (PostgreSQL, MySQL, Redis, Cassandra and other NoSQL databases)
- Unix tools and services
- LXC containerization, Docker
- Information security
- RESTful API design and implementation
- Distributed systems and service-oriented design
While most of the team is located in our San Francisco office, we are open to hiring someone who prefers to work remotely from locations with significant time zone overlap.
