Seattle, WA, USA

As cloud infrastructure continues to change the enterprise landscape, Igneous is excited to bring a modern approach to the data center.

We're a group of systems veterans looking to change enterprise data centers. Of course, behind any change is a team of great people and we're building that now. Having just closed our Series-A funding, we’re looking to grow our select team of Systems Software Engineers that will bring our initial product to market.

We’re not saying much yet, but you might want to work with us if you:

  • Are intrigued by the idea of working across the entire stack in a single language - Golang
  • Want to build high-traffic, highly-reliable, distributed systems
  • Know that the “full stack” goes deeper and doesn’t always mean merely the web
  • Care about building something that solve meaningful, real world problems relating to data center infrastructure, scalability, performance and distributed computing
  • Understand “the cloud,” and that it’s not a magic bullet
  • Need to be part of a startup team with a proven record of defining an entire industry - and that’s poised to do it again.

Equally, we really want to work with you, if you:

  • Have existing knowledge of, or an interest in, Go
  • Are a true polyglot developer who thrives spanning across multiple languages and architectures
  • Tinker across entire stack of solution development - from hardware to user interface
  • Are driven to solve large, complex, difficult problems that will take you well outside your current skill set
  • Have worked on large, highly-reliable distributed systems
  • Have expert knowledge in areas like distributed computing, storage, file systems, availability, scalability or performance

As a Systems Software Engineer at Igneous Systems you join a small, amazing team as we rapidly scale up to take on an overlooked market segment. You’ll get to work end-to-end on an enterprise-scale product (no apps here!) that we believe will permanently change the landscape.
