About Us
Buoyant builds open source, mission critical software that powers the production infra of companies around the world. Our mission is to democratize reliability and security in an increasingly complex system infrastructure landscape, by giving everyone the power to write safe, reliable software--not just the big tech companies.

We are Series A funded with a small engineering team and a modern tech stack (Go, Rust, Scala, React, Kubernetes, etc). We have strong values, a dynamic, diverse team, and awesome investors (Benchmark, SV Angel). Come help us build a company we can be proud of!

The Role
We’re looking for a full stack engineer to help build Buoyant's next generation service mesh platform. You'll be a key member of our small (<20 person) team, responsible for building engineer-facing applications that help developers around the globe do their job faster and better.

As a full stack engineer, you’ll build solutions that serve our enterprise customers, covering backend performance and reliability to frontend usability and everything in between. If you are primarily a front-end developer, don't be intimidated - we need those skills and are excited to help you grow!

You’ll work with an incredible, product-focused team in a supportive, friendly environment. Our ideal candidate has a strong engineering background, great communication skills, and a weird but adorable love of software infrastructure.
