Job description
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. To do this, you'll take point on key pieces of the database and learn the ins and outs of distributed systems. You'll also share your knowledge and collaborate with the team.

Ideally, you'll have strong experience with Go or fluency with a similar language (Java, C, C++, etc) plus some experience with Go.

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

Taking a leadership role in open source community

Being decisive about architecture and implementation decisions

Providing thoughtful and clear feedback on pull requests from your coworkers and peers

Skills & requirements

You can read and write Go code (because InfluxDB itself is written in Go)

You are familiar with network protocols: the lower layers like IP, TCP, and UDP; and the higher layers like HTTP

You have experience in distributed computing

You have the knowledge level of at least a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science

You believe that writing clear and concise tests is important

Extensive open-source contributions

You must be authorized to work in the United States
