Job Description

Rockset’s vision is to make the world more data driven. Building powerful data applications today requires a combination of complex interdependent data management systems that often resembles a Rube Goldberg machine of sorts. At Rockset, we imagine a world where developers and data scientists go from complex data sets to fast interactive applications and analysis effortlessly, within minutes. Rockset is built by experts with decades of experience in web-scale data management and distributed systems. Our team comprises engineers who helped create the online data and search infrastructure at Facebook, founded the Hadoop Filesystem project at Yahoo, implemented the Gmail backend and Kubernetes at Google, and built databases at Oracle.
We're a fast-growing company. We value curiosity, diversity, and open-mindedness. You will solve interesting problems, surrounded by exceptional people, while making customers happy. We work hard, but also take our personal lives and experiences seriously. We are backed by Greylock Partners and Sequoia Capital, and headquartered in San Mateo, CA with offices in Boston, MA and London, UK.
As a Full Stack Engineer, you’ll work across a broad surface area of interfaces and platforms to directly influence the product and the experience of our users. You’ll build new product features, APIs, and UI workflows end-to-end thinking first and foremost about what would most delight you - a developer - and by extension the developers using our product.

    • Rockset’s web management platform (, data connection and exploration workflows, query workflows and documentation (
    • Rockset’s REST API and server side logic including user management and advanced access control
    • client SDKs (e.g. Python, Node.js, Go) and developer workflows
    • visualization workflows including integrating with third-party dashboard and visualization tools
    • user usage analytics and building relevant internal tooling to increase internal efficiency throughout the company

You'd be a great fit, if you have:

    • Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Computer Science or related field of study
    • Strong communication skills to be used across engineering, product, and other functional teams
    • Relevant professional experience leading full-stack development teams and projects
    • Expert knowledge of JavaScript (React or other modern web framework) and CSS
    • Strong familiarity with server-side web technologies (eg: Java, Python, Node.js, C++, Go)
    • Passion for delivering customer value and impact
    • Experience designing scalable REST APIs is a plus
    • Good knowledge of SQL is a plus
    • 5 years experience as a full stack software engineer


    • Competitive salary & equity at a fast-growing startup
    • Fully funded comprehensive medical, dental, and vision coverage
    • Lunch provided every day
    • Flexible schedule
    • Flexible paid time off (we encourage at least 3 weeks a year)
    • Paid parental leave
    • Work from Tahoe week, where the entire company temporarily relocates to Tahoe for a week
    • Fun office environment with TGIF happy hours, board game nights, picnics and BBQs
