Job Description

At Aerospike, we have developed a flexible distributed database with furious speed, low latencies, and the ability to easily scale from Gigabytes to Petabytes. This is a modern database optimized for the latest advancements in SSD and in-memory tech (such as Intel’s Optane persistent memory.)

A great database needs to fit well in a customer's tech stack. The backend engineering team at Aerospike develops integrations with these systems, including Spark, Kafka, Flink, Elasticsearch, Tensorflow and others.

You will have an opportunity to work with new technologies and own/maintain highly visible open source projects. The code you produce must be high-quality and well-tested. 


  • Design, develop and document Aerospike Connect projects
  • Work with customers, product and solutions architecture teams to understand requirements
  • Analyze and improve the efficiency, reliability, and scalability of the platform


  • 3+ years hands-on coding with Go, Java or Scala
  • Industry experience building highly scalable distributed applications
  • Proficient understanding of big data infrastructure and backend systems
  • Experience with NoSQL databases a plus
  • Experience with Kubernetes a plus
  • Self-starter that demonstrates initiative and ability to work independently with little supervision

If available, please supply Git repos you have worked on, code examples, or questions you have answered (StackOverflow, etc)
