Software Engineer, New Grad

| Greater NYC Area
 
Databases are the beating heart of every business in the world.

Cockroach Labs is the team behind CockroachDB, an open source, distributed SQL database. We strive to build infrastructure that keeps pace with the world, so developers can focus on what matters most: building the best products. Come and join us on our mission to Make Data Easy. Are you ready to aim high and build to last?

The Role

We are looking for backend software engineers to join our team.

  • You will design, code, and test across our distributed, open source database, CockroachDB. You bring your expertise to the table to help us build the best database for our users, partners, and customers.
  • You will collaborate with designers and engineers both in-house and in our open source community to design, implement, and integrate new features and tools into CockroachDB.
  • You'll work to improve the overall performance of CockroachDB. You will make sure that our products stay scalable, survivable, and consistent as we continue to grow as a company.

The Expectations

In your first 30 days, you will become an integrated member of our engineering team. We believe that it's important for you to take this first month to become familiar with our technology and our company.

After 3 months, you'll be fully integrated into the team. You will be comfortable contributing to CockroachDB's backend stack. You will begin to determine the parts of our product that most interest you and work with your manager to focus your efforts on projects that align with those areas and the product roadmap.

As our team grows, you will have the opportunity to influence the direction of development for CockroachDB. We want our users to have a phenomenal experience using our product, and you are an important part of making CockroachDB a joy to use.

You

  • You are pursuing a degree in Computer Science or related technical field, graduating between December 2018 and June 2019.
  • You love working on complex technical products and have exposure to distributed systems, concurrency control, data replication, file systems, or SQL processing.
  • You are comfortable using programming languages like Go, C/C++, Java, and Python. We use Go on the server side, but if you don't know it, you'll learn while you're here.
  • You love building relationships with your colleagues. You enjoy being part of the code review process and partnering with your teammates on challenging problems.
  • You are genuinely interested in Cockroach Labs' mission and are excited to use CockroachDB in your projects.
  • Bonus points if you were a TA or Head TA for a CS course.
 
 
Our interview process consists largely of programming in a real environment, and we'll be evaluating you on the skills listed above.
 
Cockroach Labs is proud to be an Equal Opportunity Employer building a diverse and inclusive workforce. If you need additional accommodations to feel comfortable during your interview process, please email us at [email protected]

Cockroach Labs Benefits Overview

Flexible Working: You are free to arrange your work schedule to meet your individual circumstances.

Free Fridays: One day a week, focus on what drives and motivates you outside of your core work responsibilities. Dedicate time to a community project. Spend a day at home with the kids.

 and Outings: Once a quarter we enjoy some downtime as a team, whether it’s catching the latest blockbuster, picnicking in Central Park, or strolling through a museum for inspiration.

Team Trips: Twice a year we voyage beyond Manhattan’s shores. These might be trips to the Caribbean or to the mountains. The connections made in these environments build friendships and deepen the ties which make working together fun and productive.

Flexible Time Off: We care about productivity, not face time. Take time off when you need it.

Learning is Good: We provide $1500 annually to support learning and development through workshops, conferences, and networking events.
