We are a team of doers, seasoned engineers, hackers and builders, working on the future of streaming data.

Funded by premier investors including GV and Lightspeed, Redpanda is building the streaming data platform for developers. We’re evolving streaming beyond the Apache Kafka® protocol into a unified “engine of record” that delivers a categorical reduction in complexity, wicked-fast performance, onboard Wasm transforms, and transparent tiered storage that gives consumers access to both real-time and historical data from a single API.
 

The core team’s mission is to create the best data streaming platform. The team consists of known experts in foundational technologies such as Raft/consensus, transactions and distributed storage, who have come together to build a differentiated highly performant product with compelling traction in the market. We work closely across multiple functions at Redpanda and our work directly drives key business metrics through various SaaS and self-managed offerings.We are looking to further grow the team.

You Are:

  • Passionate about world-class systems software development and the value it provides
  • Excited to roll up your sleeves and do what it takes to deliver objective results
  • Eager to thrive with the thrill and ethos of a fast growing startup
  • Accountable, bring a sense of ownership and are self-driven

You Have:

  • Passion for working on deeply technical projects in the realm of distributed persistent systems (e.g. scalable filesystems, databases), concurrency and parallelism, replication protocols, and correctness.
  • Experience working on the internals of such systems, whether open source (e.g. Ceph, Kudu, Cassandra) or proprietary (e.g. high-scale cloud backend systems )
  • Strong understanding and experience of C++, Rust or other systems languages (ideally modern C++17 or C++20), including profiling and benchmarking
  • Desire to further develop your skills in building scalable and performant systems
  • Pride in writing robust, well-abstracted code and care as much about deleting dead code as writing new code
  • Substantial relevant experience of at least 3 years in a professional or academic role
  • Experience or desire to work with a 100% distributed engineering team, collaborating on GitHub, in the open
  • Excellent written communication skills

You Will:

  • Work among team members who care about craft and take pride in what we deliver
  • Contribute to the overall success of Redpanda ensuring our core tenets of Operational simplicity, No Data Loss and Blazingly Fast remain true as we push the envelope on scalability while expanding our target addressable market through features and integrations
  • Collaborate with product managers, designers, SREs, support and customer success to deliver solutions to challenging distributed systems problems in storage, consensus, stream processing, WASM, etc.

Redpanda is used by Fortune 1000 enterprises pushing hundreds of terabytes a day, as well as by the solo dev prototyping a React application on her laptop. Think of it as a streaming data API platform that scales with you from the smallest projects to petabytes of data distributed across the globe.
Join Redpanda if you’d enjoy being part of a fast-moving, 100% remote organization with team members around the globe and a culture based on trust, transparency, communication, and kindness.

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. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. 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. For more information about this form or the equal employment obligations of federal contractors under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
