Software Engineer – Distributed Systems 688 views

They’re on a mission to build the best platform in the world for engineers to understand and scale their systems, applications, and teams. They operate at a high scale—trillions of data points per day—providing always-on alerting, metrics visualization, logs, and application tracing for tens of thousands of companies. Their engineering culture values pragmatism, honesty, and simplicity to solve hard problems the right way.

The Team

As an engineer working on their distributed systems, you will build the high-throughput, low-latency systems that power their product. Your data pipelines will ingest, store, analyze, and query tens of millions of events per second from companies all over the globe.

You Will

    • Build distributed, high-throughput, real-time data pipelines
    • Do it in Go and Python, with bits of C or other languages
    • Use Kafka, Redis, Cassandra, Elasticsearch, and other open-source components
    • Own meaningful parts of their service, have an impact, grow with the company


    • You have a BS/MS/Ph.D. in a scientific field or equivalent experience
    • You have significant backend programming experience in one or more languages
    • You can get down to the low-level when needed
    • You care about code simplicity and performance
    • You want to work in a fast, high-growth startup environment that respects its engineers and customers

Bonus Points

    • You wrote your own data pipelines once or twice before (and know what you’d like to change)
    • You’ve built high scale systems with Cassandra, Redis, Kafka or Numpy
    • You have significant experience with Go, C, or Python
    • You have a strong background in stats
