Joyent, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Samsung, is the open cloud company. Joyent has been a pioneer and innovator in the cloud computing industry for over 15 years.. We now develop software that powers Samsung’s internal cloud, in addition to continuing our existing enterprise cloud business.
We are a team of software engineers of various technical backgrounds and at various stages in our careers. We value diverse viewpoints and have a culture built on respect, creativity, and collaboration. We value self-motivation and self-learning; we are proactive in our actions and always eager to know more. We have a strong tradition of mentorship and are always enthusiastic to share knowledge and expertise.
Our position within the Samsung organization provides us with the opportunity to build software at a scale rarely seen in the industry. At the same time, we are a small company and offer a personal and close-knit work environment. Joyent employees are thus uniquely positioned to meaningfully contribute to technology deployed on a global scale and play an important role in Samsung’s continued innovation in the cloud industry.
2 positions - senior and junior levels
We are looking for database experts who love to design and write code—software engineers who are not afraid of the biggest problems nor the smallest details and who are comfortable in every stage of the database design and implementation process. We all play many roles and value a willingness to learn new skills and take on diverse responsibilities.
You will focus on database work within Joyent’s Storage Team. You will help design and implement our use of a NoSQL database within our storage service. As such, you should have practical experience with the unique trade-offs and pitfalls that arise when managing database-dependent software across hundreds of servers distributed among multiple datacenters. You should be eager to analyze and troubleshoot unexpected database pathologies and work in and around an essential layer of our storage service.
Joyent is remote-friendly (US, Canada, EU, South Korea) and has a highly distributed engineering team. We are currently entirely remote due to the COVID-19 outbreak, but in normal times a few engineers prefer being physically present in our San Francisco office. We are seeking candidates who would like to work in the San Francisco area, New York City area, or remotely, and who can travel at least twice a year to meet with other members of the engineering team.
We are a growing company that appreciates the value of talent in terms of things both big (we offer highly competitive salary and excellent benefits) and small (gym dues are on the house)
