  • Join the team in a well-funded startup that’s poised to revolutionize data storage
  • Work with (and learn from) an extremely skilled and successful group
  • Develop your Golang skills while building the applications that power our enterprise offering


Igneous Systems is fundamentally evolving how enterprises store, backup, and archive data in the cloud era. Our unique technology delivers a secondary storage solution that effortlessly handles massive unstructured datasets that exceed billions of files and petabytes of storage. We’ve already been awarded 14 patents (plus numerous industry accolades) for our novel approach and we’re just getting started.

In this role you will work in a high energy, collaborative, customer-obsessed environment. You'll join the team building the enterprise applications that leverage our data storage and protection platform. We work primarily in Go – but no previous experience is required.

  • Balance incremental improvement with long-term vision
  • Are intrigued by the idea of working across the entire stack in a single language - Go (Golang)

And we’d really want you on our team if you:

  • Like to tinker across entire stack of solution development - from hardware to UI
  • Are interested in Golang, Docker, and/or Linux development
  • Want to solve large, complex problems that will take you well outside your comfort zone
  • Have experience delivering SaaS solutions
  • Have 4+ years of professional development experience
