Buoyant builds open source software that provides world-class security & reliability to some of the largest software deployments on the planet. As a senior open source software engineer, you will work on Linkerd, the world's fastest, lightest service mesh, building innovative features while ensuring correctness, reliability, & operational simplicity for our users.
At Buoyant you'll work with some of the sharpest minds in the industry, including Linkerd creator Oliver Gould. You'll work with leading edge languages like Rust & Go (and some not-so-leading-edge technologies like bash!). You'll manage simultaneous PRs, navigate complex software engineering tradeoffs, interact with the open source community, create documentation, & keep up with the rapidly-changing Kubernetes ecosystem.
Working at Buoyant is not for the faint of heart. Every day, we compete with companies that are many times our size & with orders of magnitude more resources. We can only do this by having a laser-like focus on solving actual problems & a deep sense of empathy for our end users. Our stellar team prides itself on a supportive & friendly environment which encourages learning & collaboration. Join us!
