At Yugabyte, we are on a mission to become the default transactional database for the cloud. We are well underway on this journey with YugabyteDB, the open source, high-performance, distributed SQL database that runs on any cloud and enables developers to get instantly productive using well-known APIs. We are looking for talented and driven people to join us on our ambitious mission and help us build a lasting and impactful company.
We announced a $188M Series C round at a $1.3B valuation in October 2021, however we very much believe we are still in the early stages of our company’s journey. The transactional database market is estimated to grow from $40B in 2021 to $64B by 2025. Given our database is cloud-native by design, has on-demand horizontal scalability, and allows for geographical distribution of data using built-in replication, we are extremely well-positioned to address the market need for geo-distributed, high-scale, high-performance wordloads.
We are looking for a solutions engineer who will be responsible for helping users to understand, design and build reliable, scalable systems using the YugaByteDB database. This role requires a mix of software architecture skills to design/implement practical solutions as well as the ability to work with developers in order to identify patterns or tools that can make building the solutions easier.
The ideal candidate would take user success seriously with respect to the software design, deployment and day 2 operations. This would involve coming up with reusable tools and libraries, building ecosystem and framework integrations, documenting how to use these clearly, etc. You will work closely with the users, sales and engineering to identify gaps that require solutions and pass feedback to influence the roadmap where needed.
