Senior Software Developer

Job description

HARDCORE ENOUGH TO ENGINEER A DATABASE?

 

Are you inspired by open source and an agile work environment?

We are looking for experienced engineers who will contribute to building a new breed of database: a distributed SQL database, aimed at Big Data, that is massively scalable and dead simple to use.

Our company was built in 2013 with the vision of developing a database which is great for users, developers and, most importantly, for back-end services that truly scale. Traditional databases don’t offer this; we’re building the solution!

As a software engineer at Crate.io you will work in small, agile teams and directly impact the future of the product. Our engineers need to be versatile and always eager to tackle new problems as we continue to push technology forward.  We love what we do and are total geeks at heart. Our teams enjoy a great deal of freedom and love to take responsibility for the things they create, which is also supported by our company-wide use of Scrum. 

If this sounds like the work environment you want to work in we’d love to hear from you!


We are a deep tech, VC funded startup with offices in Dornbirn (Austria), Berlin, New York and San Francisco.

 

WHAT TO EXPECT ON A TYPICAL DAY

  • You will write code at the heart of our next-gen, distributed database
  • Test-driven development of high-performance code
  • Benchmarks and performance optimizations
  • Contribute to upstream projects
  • Improve and maintain the tooling around our product lifecycle
  • Problem solving with your epic and supportive team members

HOW YOU WILL GET THINGS DONE

  • We use scrum to push our product forward
  • You think out of the box and are able to find new, creative and if need be, unconventional solutions
  • You will fail, make mistakes, and start again - that’s ok. It’s called learning.
  • You are an awesome team player
