We’re looking for an experienced software engineer excited about joining a small, dynamic startup passionate about data engineering and distributed systems. You’ll be contributing to our core platform, which includes Wallaroo, a high-performance stream processor written in Pony, and a growing platform around Wallaroo written in Rust. This could mean writing high-performance data connectors, helping develop vertical-specific DSLs, improving the performance of our underlying resilience algorithms, expanding our MLOps capabilities, or rolling client application requirements back into platform features.
Ideally, you have experience writing concurrent code in Rust, Erlang, C/C++ and/or Go, and know your way around both Linux systems-level programming and distributed systems. You understand the pain involved in deploying high-volume data processing systems at scale, including in the cloud, and feel comfortable analyzing and improving system performance. You thrive in an environment where the long-term goals remain stable but day-to-day needs may change quickly. And more than anything, you are committed to continual learning and value sharing your knowledge with the team.
We’ve been fully distributed for years and we intend to stay that way. There’s no central office, and though the company was founded in NYC, we have employees ranging from California to the Netherlands. This means we’re looking for strong communicators who are self-motivated and able to work both independently and collaboratively.
Wallaroo Labs wants to enable organizations to harness the power of data to realize their boldest ideas, much faster, and with greater efficiency than ever before - all without any data engineering.
Our goal is to deploy and operate high-performance computing infrastructure so customers don't have to. That’s why we’re building next-generation tools like Wallaroo, a highly efficient stream-processing engine that scales to volumes that traditional big data solutions can’t.
Our technology runs as a service inside a client’s own environment, whether in any cloud, on-premise, or at the edge, and plays nicely with modern data, messaging analytics, and machine learning ecosystems.
We believe this is a $40B+ market opportunity and we aim to take a good chunk of it. We’re a seed-stage company that’s raised $6M from some of the best enterprise software investors in NYC, and we’re looking for ambitious people to grow our team and our business, enhance our culture and contribute great ideas.
We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity in our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
