Join a tight-knit, fast-growing team on the leading edge of cloud infrastructure technology. As a Backend Engineer and one of our first 20 team members, you will have the opportunity to shape the future of our product roadmap and strategy, as well as help us build and develop a powerful engineering team. Reporting directly to the CTO and collaborating with the founding team, you will work with open source technologies to build new products in Golang and React. We’re looking for developers that are passionate about our product, can execute quickly, and are comfortable with ambiguity. Top-notch collaboration, communication, and documentation skills are essential.
Backed by leading VCs and software executives and founded by ex-Google cloud engineers and PMs, Stackwatch empowers teams to efficiently operate Kubernetes and cloud native infrastructure at scale. Starting with our flagship product, we build tooling and intelligence to manage cost, performance, reliability and other infrastructure operability challenges. Our team is fully distributed, and we’re dedicated to building a vibrant, remote-first company culture that focuses on kindness and collaboration while achieving outsized results. We have experience building infrastructure and monitoring platforms at Google, launching high-performance systems, and working with data science.
Our ideal candidate has:
Excitement for back-end development
A track record of shipping performant, scalable backend code
Ability to iterate quickly on new products and the flexibility to switch to high-priority initiatives in a fast-paced environment
Passion for infrastructure and/or DevOps tooling
Excellent collaboration, teamwork, and mentorship skills
Familiarity with Kubernetes is helpful but not necessary
We're looking for people with passion, grit, and integrity.
You're encouraged to apply even if your experience doesn't precisely match the job description. Your skills and passion will stand out—and set you apart—especially if your career has taken some extraordinary twists and turns. We welcome diverse perspectives and people who think rigorously and aren't afraid to challenge assumptions.
