About Pachyderm:

Pachyderm is the leader in data versioning and pipelines for MLOps. We’re building the data foundation that allows data science teams to automate and scale their machine learning lifecycle while guaranteeing reproducibility. With over $40 million in three rounds of funding from leading investors like Benchmark, Microsoft M12, and Y Combinator, Pachyderm is committed to building industrial strength capabilities for Data Centric AI. Pachyderm offers a commercial Enterprise Edition and an open source Community Edition. Pachyderm helps customers get their ML and AI projects to market faster, lower data processing and storage costs, and supports strict data governance requirements.

Pachyderm is growing fast and still small, so joining means you are getting in right at the ground floor and that you will have an enormous impact on the success and direction of the company and product. Pachyderm has always and will always embrace a “Remote-first” approach to growing our team. This allows us to hire a diverse group of individuals across the country (and world!) while giving our team members the flexibility to work from anywhere. Being a member of The Pach means joining a supportive team that cares about you, values kindness and works hard to create an open and transparent workplace.

The Role

Love Docker, Golang, and distributed systems?
 
Pachyderm is hiring distributed systems engineers to help us build out the core product -- a distributed version-controlled filesystem and data processing engine. You’ll be solving hard algorithmic and distributed systems problems every day and building a first-of-its-kind, containerized, data infrastructure platform.
 
While your primary focus will of course be building the core product, you’ll also have direct exposure to users and enterprise customers via our open source support channels.  At Pachyderm, OSS user and customer feedback is major driver of our product roadmap and we believe that everyone within the company should experience that first-hand.
 
Pachyderm is just a small team right now, so you'd be getting in right at the ground floor and have an enormous impact on the success and direction of the company and product.  You can of course check out the product on GitHub because it’s open-source.
 
We offer significant equity, full benefits, and all the usual startup perks.
 
Qualifications:
  • 2+ years of experience working in distributed systems, data infrastructure, back-end systems or related development work.
  • Major contribution to prominent and related open-source projects are a plus or can be a replacement for work experience in some circumstances (e.g. You’ve been a student just finishing your degree)
  • While it is a bonus, experience with Golang is not a strict requirement. Programming languages are just part of your arsenal and we’ve found that great engineers have no problem learning new tools.
  • Must have strong communication skills when talking about technical concepts. Our interview process strongly tests for communication as we have a very collaborative work environment where many parts of the codebase interact in complex ways.
  • Things change quickly as our product develops and breaking down major features into smaller and more easily executable PRs is an imperative skill.

Benefits:

  • Significant equity, 401k and full benefits (100% medical, dental and vision for employees, 50% for all dependents).
  • Flexible PTO - work/life balance is important and we want you to take time off to rejuvenate!
  • Remote friendly- we were remote before remote was cool and we intend to continue to invest in a remote first culture.
  • Tons of fun swag and surprise packages sent to your doorstep. 
  • Tech and office stipends - what you buy is yours to keep.
  • Education and donation stipends - we want to support your career growth and the community.
  • Supportive parental leave (see also: work/life balance).
  • Encouraged fun - game days, fun activities, zoom hangouts and more (and - when responsible - visits to our home base for team on-sites)

We can’t wait to meet you and hope you’ll join our PACH!

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities.

Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
