About Timescale

Timescale is addressing one of the largest challenges (and opportunities) in databases for years to come: helping developers, businesses, and society make sense of the data that humans and their machines are generating in copious amounts.

TimescaleDB is the only open-source time-series database that natively supports full-SQL, combining the power, reliability, and ease-of-use of a relational database with the scalability typically seen in NoSQL systems

Job Description

We're looking for experienced Kubernetes engineers to help us build and maintain our managed TimescaleDB cloud services. You will have the opportunity to work with a close-knit team, building and maintaining the infrastructure that powers our platform. Your work will be instrumental in developing our Kubernetes-based clusters and infrastructure. You will interact with the Kubernetes API and codebase to build controllers and operators that power our platform. Additionally, you will work closely with and further develop our infrastructure tooling to ensure the health, stability, and maintainability of our Kubernetes cluster.

Timescale is a all-remote organization; this is a full-time position and can be located anywhere across a wide range of time zones and locations (UTC-8 to UTC+5.5)

Requirements:

  • Experience deploying and maintaining Kubernetes clusters at scale. Knowledge of Kubernetes cluster orchestration tools like kops or kubeadm a plus
  • Familiarity with developing Kubernetes operators, controllers, and custom CRDs
  • Programming skills (we mostly use Go but are more concerned with good fundamentals), preferably with some experience working in the Kubernetes ecosystem or using the Kubernetes API
  • Extensive knowledge of at least one major cloud provider (AWS preferred)
  • Experience building and maintaining CI/CD pipelines and other infrastructure automation
  • Deep knowledge of Linux, container environments, and bash

Nice to Haves:

  • Experience deploying, operating, and using major production-level databases. Huge bonus points for PostgreSQL and/or TimescaleDB!
  • Remote-first culture
  • Stock options
  • Flexible PTO and family leave
  • Educational self-improvement benefits
  • Awesome coworkers
