Our Mission

We aspire to build the “devops operating system”: one integrated platform to orchestrate the delivery of applications to the cloud, from start to finish. We will accomplish this by giving devops enthusiasts what they want most: a programming environment which can encode their expertise into reusable software components, while remaining compatible with their existing tools. If we are successful, the devops community will enter a new golden age of explosive innovation and collaboration, with the Dagger platform and brand at its center.

About The Role

A Software Engineer at Dagger will help in building the core platform, setting the engineering culture, and maintaining engineering quality as we scale. An ideal Senior Software Engineer is an experienced generalist who ships fast, and has built developer-facing products before. We encourage engineers to sustain our culture of autonomy, innovation, and creativity.
