JOB DETAILS
 

Databases are the beating heart of every business in the world.

Cockroach Labs is the creator of CockroachDB, the most highly evolved cloud-native, distributed SQL database on the planet that scales fast, survives anything, & thrives anywhere. We created CockroachDB to unshackle teams from the constraints of their database. Join us on our mission to enable every developer to build world-changing applications!

About the Role

We are looking for backend software engineers who are excited about growing an open-source cloud-native distributed SQL database to join our Disaster Recovery team. The Disaster Recovery team is responsible for backup & restore, for everything from low-level implementation to high-level user experience. Our customers depend on this team during hard times. This team is also leading a new feature called Cluster Replication, an additional level of replication for even larger systems.

You Will

  • Contribute to the growth of the open source database, CockroachDB. You bring your expertise & commitment to excellence to help build a database that makes data easy for everyone.
  • Develop in Go, but if you don't know it you'll learn while you're here.
  • Improve the performance of CockroachDB.
  • Work closely with other engineers & product managers on both the cloud & database teams, take part in a collaborative culture & learn from our strong & highly experienced technical organization.
  • Ensure that CockroachDB remains scalable, survivable, & consistent as we continue to grow as a company.

The Expectations

In the first month you will join your engineering team & start to learn about our production systems, software development workflow, & the architecture of CockroachDB & CockroachCloud. We believe that it's essential for you to take this first month to become familiar with our technology, company, & our culture.

After 3 months you'll be a fully-fledged member of your team & comfortable contributing to CockroachDB. You will begin to determine the parts of our product that most interest you & work with your manager to focus your efforts on projects that align with your interests & our goals.

As our team grows you will have the opportunity to shape the direction of development for CockroachCloud & CockroachDB. We want our users to have a phenomenal experience using our product & you play a crucial role in making CockroachDB a joy to use. We also offer technical training & experienced mentorship to help you learn & grow into whatever you wish it to be.

You Have

  • A passion for working on complex technical products & have exposure to topics such as distributed systems, concurrency control, data replication, file systems, or SQL processing.
  • Comfort using programming languages like Go, C/C++, Java, & Python.
  • An understanding of system design.
  • Experience building collaborative relationships with your colleagues. You enjoy being part of the code review process & partnering with your teammates on challenging problems.
  • 4+ years of relevant experience.
  • A BS in Computer Science or equivalent experience.

The Team

In addition to your reporting manager, you will get to work closely with the senior leadership.

Reporting to Matt Sherman - Senior Manager, Engineering

Matt joined Cockroach Labs in 2020, & leads the Disaster Recovery & CDC teams. The Disaster Recovery team is about backup, restore & cluster replication, to help our users during bad times. The CDC team builds our changefeeds functionality, a great & differentiating feature that allows changes in the database to be published to other systems, such as Kafka, Snowflake & Elastic. Matt lives in New York & is pretty competitive about crosswords.

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 & 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, & consistent SQL databases, along with the amazing technology & culture at Cockroach Labs proved too much. When not working he likes to draw, play the piano, & search NYC for cannoli's with his wife & kids.

Our Benefits

  • 100% health insurance coverage (for you & your dependents!)
  • Paid parental leave (with baby bucks)
  • Flex Fridays
  • Flexible time off & flexible hours
  • Education reimbursement
  • Relocation support

Cockroach Labs is proud to be an Equal Opportunity Employer building a diverse & inclusive workforce. If you need additional accommodations to feel comfortable during your interview process, please email us at accessibility@cockroachlabs.com.
