Software Developer // Crate.IO

May 30, 2018

Are you inspired by open source and an agile work environment?

We are looking for engineers who will contribute to building a new breed of database: a distributed SQL database, aimed at Big Data, that is massively scalable and dead simple to use.

Our company was built in 2013 with the vision of developing a database which is great for users, developers and, most importantly, for back-end services that truly scale. Traditional databases don’t offer this; we’re building the solution!

As a software engineer at you will work in small, agile teams and directly impact the future of the product. Our engineers need to be versatile and always eager to tackle new problems as we continue to push technology forward.  We love what we do and are total geeks at heart. Our teams enjoy a great deal of freedom and love to take responsibility for the things they create, which is also supported by our company-wide use of Scrum.

If this sounds like the work environment you want to work in we’d love to hear from you!

We are a deep-tech, VC funded startup with offices in Dornbirn (Austria), Berlin, New York and San Francisco.
