    • Contribute new ideas for developing features and refactoring areas of code
    • Share what you've learned by talking at our weekly Engineering Forum
    • Continually expand your knowledge of both our business and technology domain. We have the resources and we give you the time to learn!
    • Develop and apply your mentoring and leadership skills

    Technologies we use: Ruby, Rails, RSpec, Javascript, MySQL, AWS, Terraform, Jenkins

    Apps we use: GitHub, Trello, G Suite, Notion, Miro

    You 🙌

    We look for:

    • Commercial experience of developing and maintaining web apps
    • Enthusiasm for taking complex problems and simplifying them for customers
    • Attention to detail. We value people who believe a job worth doing is worth doing right
    • Pragmatism; being committed to getting things done while understanding tradeoffs
    • A high level of self-motivation and self-awareness
    • A commitment to ongoing self-development, improving both technical and soft skills. If you have the commitment, we can provide opportunities for you.
    • Strong communication skills. Being able to write well and articulate your thoughts are great skills to have in any business.

    Benefits 🎁

    We provide a comprehensive package of employee benefits, which have been carefully selected to protect you, to promote healthy lifestyles, and to give you peace of mind. You can read more about these on our website.

    2 weeks ago

    Have you ever wondered what happens inside the cloud?

    Based in New York, DigitalOcean is a dynamic, high-growth technology company that serves a robust and passionate community of developers, teams, and businesses around the world. We believe that today’s entrepreneurs are changing the world through software. Our mission is to empower these entrepreneurs by bringing modern app development within reach for any developer, anywhere in the world.

    We want people who are passionate about creating simple, yet scalable experiences for our customers.

    As a Senior Software Engineer within Developer Experience you will think about how to present complex developer workflows and deployment processes as simple, elegant, and configurable solutions for our customers. Working alongside of Product and Design teams, and reporting to an Engineering Manager, you will decide how to build software that gets the most out of our products and services, and helps developers deploy, manage, and scale apps on DigitalOcean. You will also work within the broader engineering organization to improve efficiency and performance of internal systems, so that we can support our growing customer base.

    What You’ll Be Doing:

    • Developing software written primarily in Go, and sometimes Ruby.  
    • Working with containerized applications in Docker, and deploying within a CI/CD environment like GoCD and Concourse.
    • Creating and processing large amounts of data stored in, or streamed through, MySQL, Redis, and Kafka.
    • Using tools like Kibana and Grafana to monitor, alert and troubleshoot internal production performance issues.
    • Consuming and integrating with 3rd party APIs (DigitalOcean public APIs, Kubernetes, logging and analytics services, etc).
    • Actively participating in the product development process, quickly understanding how our services contribute to customer value, and gradually forming opinions on how to make those services better with minimal technical supervision.

    What We’ll Expect From You:

    • Experience working in a role where you had to balance solving software performance and scaling challenges with creating customer value.
    • Willingness to understand the architecture of multiple systems, and being able to make updates to them independently.
    • Have the ability to lead projects from start to finish, working cross functionally to gather requirements, plan work, and helping to steer development until launch.
    • Not required, but some previous exposure to Javascript and/or Rails applications, demonstrating an understanding of customer facing dependencies within a broader distributed system is a nice to have.
    • Experience with consuming and processing messages from Kafka or similar service.
    • Proficiency with writing efficient queries in MySQL.
    • Experience building APIs for external consumption.
    • Experience with Kubernetes, Docker, and CI/CD pipelines like GoCD or Concourse a plus.
    • An understanding of microservice architecture and inter-service communication with protocols like gRPC and Protocol Buffers a plus.
    • A strong appreciation for rich UI experiences, and particularly the flexibility to adapt APIs and backend services to accommodate such experiences.
    • A passion for creating developer tools and meaningful developer workflows.
    • This role will be expected to participate in an on-call rotation

    Why You’ll Like Working for DigitalOcean:

    • We have amazing people. We can promise you will work with some of the smartest and most interesting people in the industry. We work hard but we always have fun doing it. We care deeply about each other and take our “no jerks” rule very seriously.
    • We value development. We are a high-performance organization that is always challenging ourselves to continuously grow. That means we maintain a growth mindset in everything we do and invest deeply in employee development.  You’ll need to be great to get hired here and we promise you’ll get even better.
    • We care about you. We offer competitive health, dental, and vision benefits for employees and their dependents, a monthly gym reimbursement to support your physical health, and a monthly commute allowance to make your trips to and from work easier.
    • We invest in your future. We offer competitive compensation and a 401k plan with up to a 4% employer match. We also provide all employees with Kindles and reimbursement for relevant conferences, training, and education.
    • We want you to love where you work. We have great office spaces located in the heart of SoHo NYC and Cambridge and offer daily catered lunches to keep your hunger at bay. We’re also very remote-friendly—we use Slack to communicate across the company—and all remote employees have the opportunity to onboard in-office and take an all-expenses paid trip to our annual company offsite, Shark Week, to get quality in-person time with the team at least once a year. We also allow employees to customize their workstations to meet their needs—whether remote or in office.
    • We value diversity and inclusivity. We are an equal opportunity employer and we do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

    You are the voice of the customer inside Giant Swarm and the voice of Giant Swarm towards the customers, helping both sides to be successful.

    Your Job:

    • You work closely with customers to understand their architecture and further their understanding of Giant Swarm, helping them to get the most out of our product and the CNCF landscape, master Cloud Native tools like Kubernetes, Prometheus as well as Loki, Helm and others.
    • Our solution architects are becoming part of diverse open source communities around tools that our customers need and use, contributing back to those projects where possible. You build and maintain helm charts that might start out as a special project for one customer and end up being a managed service run by all our customers.
    • You hold trainings and workshops at conferences, for our existing customers, as well as with Giant Swarm’s potential customers. . Do note that the role requires minimum travel as most of our interactions as a fully remote company are via video conferencing.
    • Learn from customer's problems with moving to microservices architectures, get your hands dirty and find out what Cloud Native project's entrails look like. The more successful our customers are with the Cloud Native journey, the more successful we are.
    • Ultimately, you are also responsible for documentation, helping the product teams implement fixes, prioritizing features and making sure we only need to answer questions once.
    • First impressions are important! You help create a great onboarding experience for our customers and become the main point of contact for them.
    • To sum it up: Customer Success is all that matters. Within the solution engineering team, we make sure our customers are happy and taking the right steps going forward, at best you anticipate the problems they might face in the future.

    Requirements:

    • You have experience with more than one programming language, including Go, and a strong architectural background.
    • You feel at home in the Kubernetes world, especially the multitude of Open Source tools around Kubernetes and the Container World.
    • You can explain complicated things concisely and easily for a diverse audience.
    • You have a strong sense in providing an awesome customer service that makes life easier for Developers. Your communication skills (especially written form) are excellent. Very good English skills are a must-have. German skills are a bonus.
    • You are open to attend conferences with our team and hold talks in front of customers. You are happy to travel 5-10% per year
    • We (and our customers) are currently mostly distributed around Europe (around UTC), thus, your main timezone should be somewhere between -2UTC to +2UTC to ensure better communication.

    Why we think this position is worth applying for (challenge us!)

    • Impact, Impact, Impact! We are a growing team (from 15+ European countries) and every new team member changes the team. This is great! People who know things we don’t are highly welcome.
    • “It's better to ask forgiveness than permission” (Paolini) - sure, it’s not 100% like this, but we have a strong culture of failure which is part of our agile mindset. We don’t do things like in the guidebook. Hell, our customers choose us because we are building how the guidebook should look in this day and age. You can try things out.
    • We play a key role in our customer's digital transformation. We have partnered up with Amazon Web Services and Microsoft to provide our solution on their cloud platforms - more will follow.
    • We serve some of Europe's leading organizations and are talking to many more.

    What is it like to work at Giant Swarm?

    We would like to give you a glimpse on how working with Giant Swarm(we are a fully remote team) is like:

    Self-organization

    Creative work needs freedom and openness. We encourage you to do your work wherever (some of us travel almost half the year and work from remote islands) and whenever you want (keeping in mind that there are some meetings we would like you to attend). We expect passion and encourage sustainability. If you need rest, take it. If you take up a task, own it. If you see a problem, solve it.

    Teamwork

    We are a growing company with team members distributed all over Europe and plans on expanding to the US. Our ambitious goals are only achievable as a team. Everybody’s input is highly welcome and appreciated. Although sometimes rules and processes are necessary, we try to keep them as lean as possible. Always question the status quo and find new ways of collaboration and team work.

    Learning

    Learning is mandatory and fun at the same time. If you realize you want to expand your knowledge in a specific area, we support you with conferences, books etc.

    Basics

    We offer fair (transparent and open) salaries with benefits like choosing your own laptop, your choice to work at home or in a coworking space, flexible hours, minimal meetings, transparent communication, etc.. And you will participate in our stock options program. Currently our team members have more children than we are employees. So family friendliness is a must. We don't hire job descriptions. We hire humans. :) We welcome applications from everybody, regardless ethnic or national origin, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation or age.

    What it’s like to work here: We know how to get things done and have fun while we’re doing it. We respect your boundaries and don't hire jerks. Our culture is well-defined and our work environment is pretty informal. While we take our jobs seriously, we don’t take ourselves so seriously. We believe in empowerment, autonomy, and flexibility – so you get to determine how you work and where you work. And if/when you want a vacation, you can work with your team to determine how much and how long. We focus on results. We believe culture isn’t about how many foosball or ping pong tables you have. It’s about how you support each other and win together. So at Kapost we actively work to accelerate your career. On your first day we ask you to envision your last day. What do you want your resume to say by the time you leave Kapost? Then we proactively set up mutually aligned goals to help you reach your career aspirations. So while you help us with our adaptability we help you with your marketability. We have a transparent working environment, so you’ll know all about goals, strategies, financials, etc. And you’d be working with people who genuinely care about each other, the occasional (quiet) dog in the office, and no jerks. We believe enjoying ourselves actually leads to better results, so we enjoy social time together, whether happy hours, retreats, impromptu celebrations, and company provided all-employee lunches every week. Our offices are on the famed Pearl St Mall in downtown in Boulder, CO. You’ll know Boulder to be America’s happiest, fittest, foodiest town filled with more than 300 days of sunshine. We’re brimming with bike paths that transport you all around town and running/biking paths that are a few blocks from the office for the morning, noon or evening fun. If you don’t live in/near Boulder then you’ll also be happy to know that the school systems are among the top in the state, cost of living is accessible, commutes range from the “I can’t believe I just rode my bike 5 minutes to work” to “wow, that 15 minute cross-town traffic was just a bear today” commutes, and we are a short drive from Denver. Our offices are in walking distance to top restaurants, offering great food and after-work fun. What could be better?!

    A plus: interest or experience with computational linguistics, natural-language processing (NLP), language-learning, speech recognition, data science, or machine learning.


    What Slang can offer you

    Our compensation package includes a competitive salary, company equity, and unique benefits.

    Most importantly, we offer the special experience of being part of a fast-moving and quickly growing international company within the entrepreneurial ecosystems of Boston and MIT.

  • Hundreds of thousands of businesses have bet their success on the reliability and performance of the Shopify platform. Uptime, resiliency and efficiency are critical to these businesses and as a result of Shopify’s rapid growth and massive scale, we have many interesting and challenging infrastructure problems to solve.

     

    At the heart of this platform are Shopify’s core database systems. These systems, where we store all merchant and customer data, are built around the MySQL ecosystem of open source tools. Over the past several years, we have been hard at work scaling and improving our database infrastructure, handling almost two million queries per second at peak. Now, we want to take it to the next level and we need your help to get us there!

     

    Responsibilities as a Database Engineer:

     

    As a member of Shopify’s Production Engineering organization and the Datastores team, you’ll be directly responsible for the scalability, availability, and integrity of the Shopify database infrastructure.

     

    As a Database Engineer, your day to day activities will include working closely with the support and development teams, some traditional database administration (DBA) work and some modern systems administration work (managing cloud infrastructure). As we continue to grow and scale, we need to achieve as much as possible through automation and hands-off management. We need your help, your experience, and your crazy ideas to design, build, and deploy the next generation of database management infrastructure to expand on what we have built to keep it truly world-class.

     

    We are currently running a cloud based state-of-the-art stack on Google’s Compute Engine and Container Engine. Our next challenges involve moving all our systems, including MySQL itself, as containerized services running under Kubernetes.

     

    All members of Production Engineering, including leads, also participate in an on-call rotation.

    You’ll need to:

    Have experience with the administration, operation, and performance tuning of MySQL, ideally in a Linux environment.

    Maintain an understanding of modern solutions to deploy services at scale.

    Be proficient in at least one programming language, and have the ability to read, write and understand scripts in languages such as Ruby, Python, or Go.

    Have an insatiable appetite to grow and learn how to manage systems at scale. It would be great if you:

    Understand modern high availability (HA) designs for MySQL, and have used MySQL HA-management solutions, such as Orchestrator.

    Have experience with MySQL proxies, such as ProxySQL.

    Understand containerization and deployment on Linux using technologies such as Docker and Kubernetes.

    Are up-to-speed and comfortable with cloud infrastructure, designs, and tools for Google Cloud and/or Amazon Web Services.

    Have some familiarity with existing cloud-managed “Database as a Service” solutions, such as  Google’s Cloud SQL or Amazon’s RDS/Aurora.

    Are competent using git for version control and especially using GitHub for pull requests, reviews, and issue management.

    Are familiar with the ecosystem of Open Source software used in production web environments, such as Rails, Redis and memcached.

     

    Some things you’ll be working on in your first few months:

    Learn about Shopify’s MySQL-based database infrastructure and get comfortable working safely and efficiently in it.

    Work on the projects that will allow us to offer to our internal customers a standardized “Database as a Service” platform which would cover absolutely all their needs, including HA, data integrity, schema migrations and changes, security, monitoring and alerts.

    Test (and try to break) our high availability systems in interesting new ways, and work out the kinks found in the process.

    Respond to internal support requests from other teams to help ensure their success in developing their own applications or supporting their customers.

     

    We know that applying to a new role takes a lot of work and we truly value your time. We are looking forward to reading your application. Please take some time to tell us why you’d be an awesome addition to our team and how this role would be a fit for you!

    Who we are: Nedap Staffing Solutions develops products for the temporary staffing sector. Our products are built to remove the boring administrative part of the job. We determine our product goals ourselves, including when and how to achieve them. Within the group Staffing Solutions, we’ve been searching for a more sustainable method of developing software. Although we’ve been building our software based on the Ruby on Rails stack for quite some time now, we are experiencing certain disadvantages to using frameworks that focus on ‘ease of use’. As a consequence, we’re migrating to services in Clojure and have put the first services in production. We would like to add Rails developer to our (remote) team to spar with and speed up development. What You'll Do: You’ll be part of a small team with a dual focus - building full stack features for a new application and internal tooling that supports and accelerates our engineering output. You’ll determine what to build and when to build it. Day to Day:
    • Whiteboard architecture with other engineers;
    • Get enough time for yourself to actually get stuff done;
    • Determine root causes of bugs and fix problems that arise in production;
    • With the team, figure out what needs to be done to further improve our solutions
    What are we looking for?
    • You have a strong sense of ownership and responsibility;
    • You enjoy diversity and differences of opinion, and engaging in discussions;
    • You have worked with Ruby and object oriented programming languages
    • Having worked with functional programming languages, distributed systems and have dealt with problems related to concurrency, performance and fault tolerance is a pre
