You will be responsible for designing and maintaining the interfaces that help move data between our products as well as storing and processing data for our visualization and processing components. This role will be primarily Go, but will need to interface with a number of other languages through our client libraries as well as a lot interaction with our visualization layer so knowledge of building web applications is a plus.
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 sometimes you might fail. (That's okay.) Along with that, you'll need the persistence to keep going and try again. You'll also be working closely with your team, so you'll need to be empathic, supportive, and excited to teach as well as learn.
This role will be based out of our SF office.
