We need extraordinary engineers to join our team. As a release and build engineer, you will be responsible for building and releasing our database product across a variety of platforms and environments, such as Linux, Mac, Windows, Raspberry Pis, high-powered servers, on-bare-metal, and Docker. You would need to automate packaging and distribution across all of these heterogeneous environments using a build-farm or similar infrastructure.

You would be working closely with our core database developers to ensure we can release and iterate on the database product at a quick pace, but also assist developers by providing an easy way to package pre-release builds for testing and staging environments.

Timescale is a 100% remote organization, with engineers throughout the world; this is a full-time position.


  • Manage our packaging and release process for the TimescaleDB database.
  • Continually improve, optimize, and automate the release process, making sure we can easily and quickly deliver improvements to our users.
  • Be an enthusiastic and personable teammate, receiving and providing code reviews, and otherwise partnering and helping other engineers.


  • 1+ years of experience as a Release Engineer or similar.
  • Experience with APT, RPM, Deb, Yum, Docker, and similar packaging systems
  • Experience with automating packaging and releases in CI/CD systems such as GitHub Actions, GitLab, Travis, Jenkins, or similar (GitHub Actions preferred).
  • Experience in SQL (especially PostgreSQL) highly desirable (but not required).
  • Experience with Docker and container orchestration frameworks (Kubernetes) a plus.
  • Bachelor’s degree in computer science or equivalent experience.
