Databases are the beating heart of every business in the world.

Cockroach Labs is the creator of CockroachDB, the most highly evolved cloud-native, distributed SQL database on the planet that scales fast, survives anything, and thrives anywhere. We created CockroachDB to unshackle teams from the constraints of their database. Join us on our mission to enable every developer to build world-changing applications!

About the Role

We are hiring software engineers to build reliable and scalable, testbed infrastructure for testing both correctness and performance of CockroachDB. Your work will support our growing Test Engineering team as we continue to scale the infrastructure for automated at-scale testing of CockroachDB Cloud.

Leveraging your experience in the Cloud infrastructure, you will closely collaborate with Test Engineers and SREs, laying the foundation for ever increasing quality.

Databases must keep going no matter what. We are software engineers on a mission to push our product to new frontiers. Our work has a broad-reaching impact on the engineering organization of over 100 engineers who rely on our infrastructure, tools and expertise to ship a high quality product.

Examples of past and future projects:

The ideal candidate will have worked with massively complex codebases and possesses broad experience in distributed systems and cloud infrastructure.

You Will

  • Build and scale cloud test infrastructure spanning GCE, AWS, Azure
  • Develop tools and frameworks for the broader engineering organization
  • Own reliability of Cloud Test Infrastructure

The Expectations

In your first 30 days, you will become an integrated member of our Test Engineering team. You’ll become familiar with our production systems, software development workflows, and architecture of CockroachDB and CockroachCloud. We believe that it’s essential for you to take the first month to get to know our technology and our company. You’ll be given a “starter project” to help you learn about a particular area and start to get the lay of the land.

After your first month, you will align with the team’s development objectives and you will own and complete a medium-sized project.

By the end of the third month, you will be a fully-contributing member of the Test Engineering team. You will also have developed enough familiarity with our engineering processes to propose and scope future projects.

You Have

Desired experience level ranges from mid to staff level. At a minimum, this role requires:

  • 3+ years of experience as a software engineer writing clean, idiomatic code
  • 1+ years of hands on experience with GCP or AWS
  • Experience with Cloud Infrastructure
    • current infrastructure uses GCP, Kubernetes, Terraform, Ansible, Packer
  • Exceptional communication skills and a collaborative mindset
  • BE/B-Tech/M-Tech in Computer Science or equivalent experience

The Team

Stan Rosenberg - Director of Engineering

Stan is an experienced engineering leader, having built and scaled high-performing engineering teams and distributed systems at high-tech startups. Prior, he worked as a software engineer and a researcher in formal methods. He holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Stevens Institute of Technology. In his free time, he enjoys exploring outdoors while dreaming about days when software works as reliably as a bridge.

BabuSrithar - Site Lead, India

BabuSrithar is the Site Leader for India. He is responsible for our growth strategy and is a cultural champion in the region. He is passionate about building high-quality software products and lean teams by leveraging everyone's potential. He enjoys working with people and learning along the way. Before joining Cockroach Labs, BabuSrithar held senior leadership positions at companies like Nutanix, Clumio and recently he was VP of engineering at Apty where he led the engineering globally. When not at work, he enjoys his time with his 3-year-old and family.

Isaac Wong - VP of Engineering

Isaac is responsible for the health of the engineering organization at Cockroach Labs. He partners closely with teams to ensure we have a balanced culture that promotes quality and innovation in pursuit of our goals. Before joining Cockroach Labs Isaac was in life sciences for 16 years with Medidata Solutions where he had a front row seat on the exciting ride from a 30 person startup to more than 2000 people worldwide. But the lure of distributed, resilient, and consistent SQL databases, along with the amazing technology and culture at Cockroach Labs proved too much. When not working he likes to draw, play the piano, and search NYC for cannolis with his wife and kids.
