An open-source distributed time series database with no external dependencies. InfluxDB is the new home for all of your metrics, events, and analytics
As a Go Database Engineer, you'll be working on the core of InfluxDB, an open source time series database written in Go. As part of the core database team, you'll be on the forefront of development with Go, helping us solve problems in high-performance, distributed computing.

We're looking for candidates who value continually mastering the craft of coding and building tools that benefit the open source development community. You'll need to be open to experimenting, which means that you'll also need persistence. You'll also be working closely with your team, so you'll need to be empathic, supportive, and self-aware.
Being a core contributor to the InfluxDB codebase
