Percona is a respected thought leader in the open-source community. We provide services and software for MySQL, MongoDB, PostgreSQL and MariaDB to open source users globally.

Percona is remote-first and globally dispersed; we have 250 people in almost 40 countries. We offer a collaborative, highly-engaged culture where your ideas are welcome and your voice is heard. The growth and development of our staff is a top priority; we provide funding for training, certifications, conferences and more. 

Discover what it means to work with some of the smartest people in the industry, who also know how to have fun and are always willing to lend a helping hand. We offer flexible hours, the ability to work remotely and the amazing experience of working with a multinational team of experts.

We’re looking for a full-time remote developer to join our team and help to bring Open Source databases to Kubernetes.

The work is challenging, but that’s why it’s also fun and rewarding!  Plus, our team is small, so you and your work will significantly impact the Kubernetes ecosystem. This is a rare opportunity to work from home in a great team, on a 100% open source project!

This position is back-end development.  You should find these keywords familiar and very appealing: Kubernetes, infrastructure orchestration, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, MySQL, database clustering, database high-availability, containers
