✨ About The Role

Key Responsibilities

As a Senior Software Engineer, you will be an early member of the Eventual team with primary responsibilities around building out key features for the Daft distributed data engine.

You will be working on core architectural improvements to various components of Daft including:

  • Query Optimizer: intelligently optimize users’ workloads with modern database techniques
  • Execution Engine: improve memory stability through the use of streaming computation and more efficient data structures
  • Distributed Scheduler: improve Daft’s resource utilization, task scheduling and fault tolerance

Our goal is to build the world’s best open-source distributed query engine, and your work will play a key role in realizing that vision.

We are a young startup - so be prepared to wear many hats such as tinkering with infrastructure, talking to customers and participating heavily in the core design process of our product!

What we look for

We are looking for a candidate with a strong foundation in systems programming and ideally experience with building distributed data systems or databases (e.g. Hadoop, Spark, Dask, Ray, BigQuery, PostgreSQL etc)

Our ideal candidate has:

  1. 3+ years of experience working with distributed data systems (query planning, optimizations, workload pipelining, scheduling, networking, fault tolerance etc)
  2. Strong fundamentals in systems programming (e.g. C++, Rust, C) and Linux
  3. Familiarity and experience with cloud technologies (e.g. AWS S3 etc)

Most importantly, we are looking for someone who works well in small, focused teams with fast iterations and lots of autonomy. If you are passionate, intellectually curious and excited to build the next generation of distributed data technologies, we want you on the team!

Benefits and Remote Work

We are believers in both having the flexibility of remote work but also the importance of in-person work, especially at the earliest stages of a startup. We have a flexible hybrid approach to in-person work with at least 3 days of in-person work typically from Monday - Wednesday at our office in San Francisco.

We believe in providing employees with best-in-class compensation and benefits including meal allowances, comprehensive health coverage including medical, dental, vision and more.
