About the company
k6 is a developer centric open source load testing tool for testing the performance of
your backend infrastructure. It’s built with Go and JavaScript to integrate well into your development workflow, so you can stay on top of performance without fuzz.

Job position
Permanent - Remote work possible

Job description
You will be the one of two lead developers and maintainers of k6: a new open source tool for performance testing, written in Go. k6 was released publicly in early 2017 and has already received over 3,000 stars on Github and has an active community of users and contributors.

You will have a lot of influence on the project road map and will work with a high degree of autonomy, building and maintaining the tool.

You responsibilities will be to both write code, extending the functionality of k6, and to maintain the code base, interface with the user community (i.e. reject patches :) and potentially evangelize the tool. Your main, long-term goal will be to create the best possible tool, and to get as many people as possible to use it.

You'll also be involved with the k6 cloud integration, Load Impact's commercial service built on top of k6. Specifically the parts of the cloud service written in Go, that orchestrates a distributed k6 test across several data centers around the world.
