Go Developer at Mesosphere GmbH Germany
Hamburg, Germany, Germany (Posted Apr 27 2015)
About the company
Mesosphere (mesosphere.io) is heavily involved in the development of Mesos with the vision to build an infrastructure to utilize your entire datacenter or cloud instances like one big computer. Managing clusters efficiently while providing resource isolation, this technology represents an evolution of virtualization: rather than provision and manage virtual machines, enterprises can manage highly distributed applications in a datacenter as if they were apps being launched on a laptop. Such applications gain elasticity and can easily leverage idle resources, improving overall resource utilization and reducing total costs. We are making these capabilities available on all major public cloud providers as well as directly on physical hardware in private datacenters.
- Remote work is NOT possible
Help us build the Mesosphere Datacenter Operating System (DCOS) - a new kind of operating system that spans all of the servers in a physical or cloud-based datacenter. DCOS is building on and extending the Apache Mesos open source project that enables massively scalable applications and data services at companies such as Twitter and Airbnb.
We are now looking for
Go Developers / Distributed Systems Engineers (f/m)
to work on the Mesosphere stack in our office in Hamburg.
We are implementing Go language support for Mesos in Go, and we are using Go to enable frameworks such as Kubernetes on Mesos. We are also making Mesos take advantage of and enhance the utility of packaging and operating systems implemented in Go. Furthermore, we are working on a Go plugin system for the Mesos core to facilitate writing system extensions and advanced algorithms in Go.
Our engineers take pride in their craft and ship code that is expertly engineered and well tested. The team consists of extremely talented engineers - ranging from the design and implementation of programming languages and various managed runtime systems to writing distributed tracing tools for HPC. The founders of Mesosphere helped build and scale Twitter and Airbnb and have written notable open source software.
With an office in San Francisco and an office in Hamburg, Mesosphere firmly believes in rotation in both directions, helping employees with relocation, depending on their desire and business-related conditions, both permanent and temporal. As a genuine Silicon Valley startup, Mesosphere offers stock options and great opportunities for professional development. Mesosphere has raised funding from venture capital firms Andreessen Horowitz, Kleiner Perkins, Foundation Capital, Data Collective, and Fuel Capital.
