Leveraging the latest technology stack and the most recent academic research in the big data space, Firebolt combines the best of high performance database architecture with the infinite scale of the data lake.

Job Description

Firebolt is a major shake-up to the cloud data warehouse industry. We have built the fastest, most scalable, and most hardware efficient cloud data warehouse in the market. By far. We’ve proven incredible market fit, turned the most data-forward companies from amazing design partners into paying customers, raised $37M in our recent round A, and are poised to grow quickly to help companies do with big data what they can’t with Snowflake, Redshift, and the rest.


About the tech stack

Firebolt is composed of several open-source projects and relies on a unique IP that boosts data analytics and enables full scalability and decoupling compute from storage.

We have Terraform as part of the application, dynamically provision AWS accounts, network infrastructure, and workloads in reaction to clients activity. The infrastructure is managed as code with Terraform/Kops/Helm and services are monitored using Prometheus Thanos Grafana and Loki.

CI/CD is handled by a combination of CircleCI and ArgoCD in GitOps fashion to test and deploy code to production.

We’re pushing to run everything on Kubernetes, stateless and stateful workload. We love CRDs and operators, and we also develop our own.

Our SQL core teams work with C++. Our backend teams work with Go, Python, Rust in order to create gRPC microservices exposing REST APIs and GraphQL interface. We are using CockroachDB, FoundationDB, Temporal, and Kafka as application infrastructure. Our frontend teams work with TypeScript, React, Redux + Apollo.
