About Bobsled

Our goal at Bobsled is to transform the way data is shared across organizations, clouds, and data platforms. Our cross-cloud platform enables enterprises to share data quickly and securely through one unified control plane that manages all aspects of data sharing, including replication, updates, versioning, entitlements, telemetry, and more. 

By solving these problems we will: 

  • Remove barriers to collaboration between organizations
  • Facilitate and democratize the use of data to enable better decision making

We believe that by using data collaboratively, we can enable better solutions to the world’s hardest problems.

We understand that no candidate is perfectly qualified for any job. Experience comes in different forms; many skills are transferable; and passion goes a long way. Even more important than your resume is a clear demonstration of skill, dedication, and the ability to thrive in a fluid and collaborative environment. We want you to learn new things in this role. We’re hiring at multiple levels of seniority, so we encourage you to apply if your experience is close to what we’re looking for.
