  • We are seeking software developers with experience in systems software or web development.
  •  Experience with high-throughput systems/APIs, CDNs and strong understanding of HTTP and gRPC semantics is a plus. 
  • The candidate should have proficiency of one or more of the following languages: C/C++/C#/Java/Rust/Go, with Go (aka. golang) experience being ideal. 
  • The ideal candidate is a creative and curious motivated team player. Big three cloud (AWS, GCS, Azure), configuration management (puppet, salt, ansible, terraform), CI/CD and Kubernetes/docker experience is desirable but not required.
