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 frontend engineer to help build Buoyant's next generation service mesh dashboard and cloud service web experience. 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 frontend engineer, you’ll build web interfaces that make understanding and debugging complex mission critical infrastructure possible, approachable and collaborative. We want to support this role in not only building awesome web applications, but also in designing clean, accessible and intuitive UX. Our API's services are written in Go, and we plan to develop this role to be involved in the full stack.

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.
