Cloud Platform Engineer

Build and operate infrastructure for a world-class real-time streaming cloud platform

We are building Redpanda, a real-time streaming engine for modern applications. Redpanda is used by Fortune 1000 enterprises pushing hundreds of terabytes a day, and by the solo dev prototyping a React application on her laptop. We go beyond the Kafka protocol into the future of streaming, with inline WASM transforms and geo-replicated hierarchical storage.

We are on a mission to enable every developer to supercharge their real-time applications.
