Quilt is continuous data delivery. We transform S3 into a collaborative data lake and data catalog. You will be a key member of Quilt's San Francisco based engineering team. We are a tight-knit team of computer scientists who take pride in what we build. We are looking for an experienced Cloud Engineer, with strong computer science fundamentals, to deliver high-quality, delightful features to our customers.

You have experience with the following platforms and technologies:

  • Python, including backend and web frameworks like Flask and Django
  • Blob Storage (i.e. S3, GCS, etc)
  • Enterprise software features (e.g. SSO, license management, IT configuration, and scripted deployment)
  • Open source - managing projects and releases; engaging contributors
  • Cloud-native and serverless applications

You use all of the following technologies (and have hacked the internals of one or more):

  • Version control systems, especially git
  • Distributed data
  • Docker and Kubernetes
  • Databases, both SQL and NoSQL
  • AWS

You are committed to producing high-quality code in a team setting:

  • Unit tests
  • Code reviews
  • Integration tests and continuous deployment

What we expect

  • Know your software engineering.
    • Have a strong CS background, in order to choose the right algorithms, systems, approaches, and patterns to solve problems.
    • Hit the ground running. Therefore, 3 or more years of industry experience is required.
    • Experience with Python, and at least one systems programming language (C++, Java, or Go).
    • Experience with AWS and/or Kubernetes a plus.
  • Act as a technologist.
    • Bias towards action and shipping. Once you’ve sketched out an idea, you find the fastest path to a prototype to prove the concept.
    • Strong ability to write production code quickly.
    • Be comfortable with a range of languages, open source tools, and frameworks. You are excited to learn something new when the need arises.
    • Be creative: you’ll come up with new ideas based on your broad understanding of technological possibilities and city domain knowledge.
  • Solve problems, together.
    • Come up with novel solutions, working well with non-technologists and others.
    • Ask hard questions and challenge assumptions to ensure that we’re solving the right problems.
    • Have the flexibility to work on the team’s most pressing problems.
  • Care; about our customers, getting data infrastructure right, solving hard problems, and making our team successful.
