The Cloud Foundations team is looking for backend engineers who are excited about building the infrastructure that enables us to scale fast, survive anything, and thrive everywhere.
We’re enabling key features of CockroachDB running on CockroachCloud like multi-region deployments, customer managed encryption keys and elastic scaling. The platform is deployed globally and will push the limits of the services cloud vendors provide today. Every feature we build for the CockroachDB Dedicated platform is leveraged by our DBaaS offering.
You’ll be helping set our technical roadmap, working across cloud vendors, and developing customer facing features to help us build the best place to run CockroachDB. Providing a Distributed SQL Database like CockroachDB as a service offers a lot of fun and tough technical challenges. It’s not a solved problem and we need you to help us figure it out.
In the first month you will join your engineering team and start to learn about the existing internal and customer-facing production systems used to build, run and deploy CockroachDB and CockroachCloud. How Cockroach Labs and our customers run CockroachDB on multiple cloud providers and private data centers. We believe that it's essential for you to take this first month to become familiar with our technology and our company.
After 3 months, you'll be a fully-fledged member of our Production Engineering team. You’ll be building the infrastructure that allows CockroachCloud to operate across multiple clouds by using Kubernetes and other cloud native technologies.
As our team grows, you will have the opportunity to shape the direction of our infrastructure and processes. We are building CockroachCloud to make it easier for people to get started with CockroachDB and make CockroachDB the developer’s database of choice. To help make this possible we need to provide the best, most stable platform to run CockroachDB. We also offer technical training and experienced mentorship to help you learn and grow into whatever you wish it to be.
Bonus Points For:
Reporting to Yandu Oppacher - Director of Engineering
Yandu works across multiple parts of CockroachCloud to ensure that our infrastructure and teams are robust and scalable. Yandu joined Cockroach Labs after nearly 8 years at Shopify where he started on the data platform team and helped it grow from 4 DB nodes to several hundred Hadoop nodes running over petabytes of data in Google Cloud. In his last 2 years at Shopify, he led the Production Engineering teams responsible for all of the compute runtime resources that power Shopify’s mission critical services. Joining CockroachCloud and Cockroach Labs allows him to get back to his first love, Databases, while applying his Production Engineering skills to help build our DBaaS platform. Outside of Cockroach Labs Yandu will be found reading or, more likely, chasing after his 3 young kids and exploring the outdoors with them.
Isaac Wong - VP of Engineering
Isaac is responsible for the health of the engineering organization at Cockroach Labs. He partners closely with teams to ensure we have a balanced culture that promotes quality and innovation in pursuit of our goals. Before joining Cockroach Labs Isaac was in life sciences for 16 years with Medidata Solutions where he had a front row seat on the exciting ride from a 30 person startup to more than 2000 people worldwide. But the lure of distributed, resilient, and consistent SQL databases, along with the amazing technology and culture at Cockroach Labs proved too much. When not working he likes to draw, play the piano and search NYC for cannolis with his wife and kids.
