Weaveworks is a Google Ventures backed startup with offices in San Francisco, London, and Berlin and was founded in 2014.
We are the company behind popular Kubernetes tools like Flux, Scope, the official CLI for Amazon EKS called EKSCtl and the flagship enterprise product Weave Kubernetes Platform.
KUBERNETES & OPEN SOURCE
At Weaveworks we are fully committed to support the Open Source community around Kubernetes and have centered our business around building open-source tools and commercial products which help enterprise developers to manage large scale Kubernetes deployments.
Our mission is to help the world’s leading organizations to adopt Kubernetes and other Cloud Native technologies and working practices. Enterprises use our products and services to build better software and operate it reliably, at scale. Our approach brings together container-based application deployment, Kubernetes and operations tooling in a model we call GitOps.
You will work in a multifunctional agile team, either remote or on-site in Berlin, to develop and maintain tools and products which make using cloud-managed and on-premise Kubernetes installations easy.
You will be involved in refining work and contributing to decisions throughout the software development lifecycle. Our teams are distributed around the world and we use video conferencing and slack extensively. So we’re looking for someone with experience and a self-starter with excellent communication skills.
The position is full-time on a freelance contract and your contractual partner will be our UK or US entity. Stock options are part of the compensation package.
WHAT YOU SHOULD HAVE
- Strong engineering background and experience with Agile (we do Scrum / LeSS)
- Strong Go background
- Experience in building highly-concurrent, distributed, and highly-scalable systems
- Devops experience with one or more public cloud providers (Google Cloud, AWS, Azure)
- Kubernetes experience, standalone and as part of the public cloud providers
- A meaningful track record on Github
- Strong communication skills and a team-first mind-set
- Ability to work unsupervised and also to coordinate with others when required
- For remote: you need to live in the European Union, CH, NO or UK due to time zone overlap and the requirement to fly once in a while to our office to meet your coworkers
We welcome candidates with interesting and diverse backgrounds, for example fluency in other languages and cultures.
