About Us:

At Modal, we build foundational technology, including an optimized container runtime, a GPU-aware scheduler, and a distributed file system.

We're a small team based out of New York and Stockholm and have raised over $23M. Our team includes creators of popular open-source projects (e.g., Seaborn, Luigi), academic researchers, international olympiad medalists, and experienced engineering and product leaders with decades of experience.

The Role

We are looking for strong engineers with experience and interest in designing, building, and maintaining the novel, high-performance systems that make up our serverless platform.\


  • Work in-person, in either our NYC or Stockholm office

  • Full medical, dental, vision insurance

  • Competitive salary and equity


  • 5+ years of experience writing high-quality production code

  • Experience building high-performance distributed systems at a large scale (the more battle scars, the better)

  • Strong cloud skills

  • Strong knowledge of low-level operating system foundations (Linux kernel, file systems, containers, etc.)

  • Experience with performance engineering (tell us a story of when you shaved off a few milliseconds!)
