We want developers with experience creating large-scale distributed computing, storage, and data management systems used in production. Great coding, technical problem solving, and communication skills are all important to us. We also value open source community experience. We want to work with people who thrive in a meritocracy, enjoy learning new technologies, and want to have a positive impact in the world.
