Gravitational, an early stage systems & cloud startup in San Francisco, is looking for ambitious and talented people. We are well-funded by fantastic Silicon Valley investors. We are an experienced team: we founded Mailgun which was acquired by Rackspace, we created Vulcand and some other cool stuff at Rackspace and are authors of Teleport and Telekube
We are hackers. We love Linux and low level systems programming and we love helping open source communities and other engineers to get things done.
We are also dedicated to our friends, families, and hobbies outside of work. Our past experiences building companies taught us about the importance of life and work balance. It matters even more when you are building a huge and lasting company, like Gravitational.
If this resonates, we want to talk to you.
You understand how computers work and what role an operating system
plays. You know why the Linux kernel is written in C and not any other
language. You have a favorite file system, you know what a syscall is
and you are comfortable exploring
/sys. You like using Go every day, are not afraid of Makefiles and you enjoy when thousands of servers bend to your will.
You should also be comfortable joining an early stage company with a dynamic future. We offer a great salary, but expect you to value the equity as well. In return we will be very transparent with you about the company finances and outlook. You are joining a founding team and we want you to enjoy the ride.
If you are this kind of person, here is what you will be working on:
- Build solutions using Go, systemd and runc and Kubernetes
- Design and build new open source products like teleport you can be proud of
- Talk to customers and convert complex requirements into simple and elegant solutions
- Daily code reviews
We would prefer everyone to be in San Francisco or Berlin and we can relocate you. We will consider remote option for experienced candidates with a history of getting things done.
