About Pulumi:

At Pulumi, we’re building the Cloud Engineering Platform enabling the future of developer-first infrastructure. We believe that programming the cloud should be just as productive, joyful, and flow-inducing as your local dev loop. We want to make janky internal developer portals and homegrown infrastructure DSLs a thing of the past. Every engineer deserves delightful tools. 

We employ a unique philosophy toward achieving this goal:

    • We succeed and fail as a team
    • An inclusive environment bubbles the best ideas to the top
    • Our customers sit at the center of every decision
    • We achieve the best results through openness and honesty, even when uncomfortable
    • Work smart, but bias for action and results
    • Our natural curiosity for technology keeps us always learning
    • Think big, dream, and define the future of engineering in the cloud

This Role:

As Pulumi hits an inflection point in user growth, we need to build for scale to support hundreds of thousands of users. Are you excited to handle challenges of scale? Can you design and build cloud systems, make consistency and latency tradeoffs where appropriate, and optimize the ingestion of petabytes of JSON?

On any given day at Pulumi you might find yourself:

  • Migrating a write-heavy workload out of MySQL into DynamoDB
  • Engineering new features like full-text search, or drift detection
  • Designing a scheme for geo-replicating api.pulumi.com
  • Profiling, tuning, and optimizing slow MySQL queries
  • Building out data-intensive infrastructure for new cloud-scale product offerings
  • Adding new SaaS product capabilities at the intersection of dev tools, distributed systems, and compilers

Job Requirements:

We’re hiring motivated engineers from entry-level to principal, but it helps if you have experience and excitement for:

  • Backend engineering in a language like Go, C#, Java, etc.
  • Schema, index, and query design for MySQL or Postgres
  • Experience designing and operating compute and data infrastructure on AWS, Azure, GCP, or Kubernetes.
  • Working knowledge of infrastructure characteristics that impact application development, such as queue delivery guarantees, database isolation, consistency characteristics, and write durability.

Pulumi Benefits:

  • Health - We offer competitive medical, dental, vision, and supplemental insurance. It is free for our direct employees to be on our insurance.
  • Time Off - Unlimited personal time off (PTO) we ask that employees take at least 3 weeks off during the year in addition to the two annual company-wide wellness weeks. 
  • Parental Leave - 20 weeks paid parental leave for the birthing parent or primary caregiver, and 16 for non-birthing parent or secondary caregiver.
  • Remote-First - We are a 100% remote-first company with employees in nearly 20 states, and growing internationally; we encourage asynchronous communication and autonomy. We also provide an annual work from anywhere fund to help cover the employee costs of working remotely.
  • Professional Development & Growth - We encourage a lifelong learning mindset and every employee is given an annual professional development budget.
  • Equity - As a small but growing startup, we all act like owners and you will earn equity in the company.
  • Additional Funds - We offer employees a monthly wellness fund to be spent on anything physical and/or mental wellbeing related. We also provide a quarterly happiness fund to be used toward anything that makes our employees happy!
