  • Tackle a broad systems engineering challenge that will have you working end-to-end in Golang
  • Join our team at a well-funded startup where you will help revolutionize the data storage industry
  • Work and grow with a deeply skilled group where culture really matters

Igneous Systems is fundamentally evolving how enterprises store, backup, and archive data in the cloud era. Our patented technology delivers a secondary storage solution that effortlessly handles massive unstructured datasets that exceed billions of files and petabytes of storage. Our team has already secured 14 patents (not to mention numerous industry accolades) for our novel approach and we’re just getting started!

We’re looking for passionate SystemsEngineers to join our team working on complex distributed systems with a focus on scale, performance, security, and availability. We work primarily in Go – but no previous experience is required.

Will you will love it as a Systems Engineer on our team? We think you might if you:

  • Are fascinated by the idea of working across the entire stack in a single language - Go (Golang)
  • Care about solving syste-ms-level problems in distributed computing, storage, file systems, availability, scalability, and performance
  • Are passionate about the end-to-end customer experience, and continuous learning from observations in production systems
  • Want to be on a team with a proven record of redefining entire industries - and that’s poised to do it again.

And we’d really value your contribution to our team, if you:

  • Have a real passion for large-scale distributed systems
  • Have worked in, or are eager to learn, Golang
  • Want to tackle large, complex problems that will take you well outside your current skill set
  • Are experienced in automation and orchestration of containers with Kubernetes and Docker
  • Have 4+ years of professional software development experience

As a SystemsEngineer at Igneous you join an amazing team, working end-to-end on an enterprise-scale product in a role that will be instrumental to our success.
