We are looking for a generalist to help us build the platform that powers Blaast. You'll be working on the magic that gets Blaast running, from network communication, to distributed data handling and process isolation. You have the opportunity to shape how a platform that supports millions of users works. You'll also be safeguarding that the applications both ourselves and external developers are deploying on Blaast, are automatically provisioned by the platform across our backend, and have the resources to run.
Passion for going large scale is a must. You'll be supported by a team of like-minded people, generalists that have worked in all layers of a system, from kernel, to network stacks, distributed systems, and even UI and applications.
This is an opportunity to work on a set of different technology and languages: both the PaaS nature of platform, as well as the visible side of the software: its APIs. If you are looking for a challenge, this is it.
