We have contributed to open source communities such as WordPress, Drupal, Fedora, Chef, systemd, cURL, Kubernetes, Terraform, Sensu, and more.. If you have experience with any of these technologies, we want to hear from you. Additionally we are looking for engineers with experience deploying applications at scale using any of Javascript, PHP, Go, Java, Rust, or Python on a public cloud platform (GCP, AWS, Azure) using container orchestrators (Kubernetes, ECS etc), and SQL or NoSQL databases .

Pantheon’s core company values are Trust, Teamwork, Passion, and Customers First. Within Pantheon engineering, we value collaboration, character, autonomy, and a no-blame culture.
