Our client believes that your data is, well, yours. They provide tools and applications that make sure you maintain access even when you’ve entrusted data to a cloud application. They provide backup services for the largest cloud applications in the world, they have thousands of customers, and they store nearly a petabyte of data for them. They’re expanding our coverage and user base every day.

Our client is seeking a proven software engineer with a track record of providing technical and architectural leadership in a startup environment. Technical challenges include managing big-data securely and at scale in a cloud-hosted environment. Our client is looking for a driven engineer who loves the craft, is invested in building product, and is excited about working on the technological and business challenges that crop up as our client builds the future of SaaS backups. While our client’s primary development environment is Ruby they will consider Engineers without Ruby experience. Our client seeks talented and passionate Engineers with experience developing in the full stack on client facing web applications.

•Fail Fast, Course Correct. Progress happens through mistakes. They want people who aren’t afraid to fail and who can translate missteps into next steps.

Job duties: The senior software engineering role is a coding role with technical leadership responsibilities.

You’ll be joining several other highly experienced engineers to balance their growing team. Our client is trusted by thousands of organizations and hundreds of thousands of end-users to securely and reliably backup their cloud applications. With over a petabyte of data under management and a fast-growing customer base, our client continually challenge itself and their architecture to reach new levels of scalability.

Our client’s technology stack makes extensive use of Ruby, Redis, Cassandra, Postgresql, Amazon EC2, and S3.
