Always be kind: a simple daily affirmation and one that feels more like a personal mission statement than a corporate motto -- but Pivotal isn’t just any corporation. Underpinning our world-class capabilities in cloud-native software delivery and agile development methodologies is one common thread: empathy. Not only do we want to transform the way the world builds software, we also want to make sure that sustainable pace, kindness, and diversity are at the core of every enterprise.

Known for taking an iterative approach, our 2000+ employees are empowered every day to help shape the way we build software. Pivotal is committed to open source, a diverse culture, and fostering safe spaces for all of our individual employees.


You have a passion for simplifying how developers build and interact with distributed systems. You have an affection for open source software and fostering community growth. Above all, you love shipping software as a member of a distributed collaborative team.


The Reactor team is expanding to accelerate its footprint within our tooling, platform and framework efforts. We are looking for an enthusiastic and talented software engineer, ideally experienced with distributed systems and related software programming. We know from experience that not ticking every box on the skills sections stops many from applying. You should apply regardless of your self-assessment because we want to hear from you.

Desired Skills:

  • Proficient with Java
  • Familiar with one or more “non-blocking” technologies including but not limited to Netty, RxJava, Reactor, Node.JS or Go
  • Good understanding of one or more distributed systems topics such as observability, network communications, microservices or function-as-a-service.
  • Highly self motivated
  • Avid learner
  • Ability to collaborate remotely
  • BA/BS in Computer Science or related field, or equivalent experience

Nice to Haves:

  • Comfortable with Git and GitHub workflows
  • Community outreach or public speaking experience

Pivotal offers a modern approach to technology that organizations need to thrive in a new era of business innovation. Our solutions intersect cloud, big data and agile development, creating a framework that increases data leverage, accelerates application delivery, and decreases costs, while providing enterprises the speed and scale they need to compete.
