About ReadySet

At ReadySet, we’re building a distributed SQL cache that precomputes the results of prepared statements (i.e. parameterized SQL queries) and incrementally updates these results over time as the underlying data in your database changes.

ReadySet is wire-compatible with MySQL and Postgres, so it can be integrated with your existing application without code or database changes– ReadySet makes it easy for developers to build performant web, analytical, and internal applications regardless of whether they’re deployed to a single region or around the world. 

We’re looking for people who are excited about exploring and productionizing the frontier of distributed systems and DB research to join our international, fully-remote team. You’d be a great fit at ReadySet if you're excited to build data infrastructure that makes modern read-heavy applications faster, simpler, and easier to deploy.

About this role

We are looking for people who are excited to architect and build out our on-prem and cloud-prem offerings in a green-field setting. In your day-to-day, you’ll make important architectural decisions, build out our deployment pipelines, drive security and compliance decisions (SOC 2, ISO 27001), and put systems in place to manage growth (including capacity, cost, performance, isolation, etc). In this role, you will have the opportunity to hone your cloud engineering skills across multiple environments and build out our product offerings the right way from the get go.  


- Work alongside a team of cloud engineers building the Enterprise platform infrastructure for ReadySet
- Develop and maintain system deployment automation processes to enable customers to deploy, manage, configure, scale and monitor their ReadySet installations
- Build tools for infrastructure monitoring to ease in the resolution of issues while running in production
- Actively work alongside solutions engineers to help debug and configure customers’ ReadySet deployments
- Participate in deep architectural discussions to ensure solutions are designed for successful deployment, security, cost effectiveness and high availability in the cloud
- Ensure the ReadySet enterprise platform meets expected security requirements

You may be a good fit if you have...

- 3+ years of cloud engineering experience including scripting, system deployment automation, infrastructure management and networking
- Experience with Terraform, Kubernetes, 
- Experience in building and designing systems on at least one major cloud provider (AWS, GCP, Azure)
- Proficiency with CloudFormation, EC2, RDS, IAM, S3, ELB, Cloudwatch and other tools in AWS
- Experience with Rust is ideal, or similar languages such as Go or Python.
- Previous experience delivering a cloud-prem product, building an enterprise deployment product or working with AWS marketplace are all great to haves. 
- Ability to visualize the flow of data through a complex application
- Excellent debugging and optimization skills
- Experience or interest in working in an early-stage startup environment
- A degree in Computer Science or a related field, or similar work experience

Our values 

Continuous Learning and Growth

Having a product rooted in research out of MIT, a commitment to learning is a requisite trait of every team member. We work on cutting-edge problems in distributed systems and are looking for engineers ready to rise to the challenge as we revolutionize the use of SQL in modern web applications. We want to be a company where all employees are excited to continue learning and growing in their area of expertise, no matter which role or team they are a part of.

Healthy Collaboration

Though every team member at ReadySet is individually exceptional, many of the problems we are solving have not been solved before. This means engineering at ReadySet is a team sport.  We strive to give every engineer ownership over their work while giving them the resources they need to produce high-quality solutions. We welcome feedback on our own ideas and create timelines with the assumption that part of every day will be spent helping others. We also trust that during disagreements, every teammate will prioritize finding the best possible solution over being right. We encourage collaboration and humility over ego. 

Safety to Fail

As a growth stage company tackling huge engineering challenges, sometimes we fail. When this happens, we don’t place blame or keep score and are willing to acknowledge when we could have done better. Most importantly, we are committed to learning and improving as much as possible from every failure so we have a higher chance of succeeding the next time.

Diversity and Inclusion

ReadySet knows that a diverse workforce directly contributes to a higher quality product for our customers. We have put immense effort into fostering an inclusive, diverse work environment from the time of the company’s founding. We expect everyone to bring empathy and respect to all of their interactions with coworkers and customers. Encouraging everyone to bring their unique perspectives to
the table when solving problems helps us build and deliver stronger products.


We have raised over $28m from great VC funds and angels to fuel our growth and help us take our product from an ambitious research prototype to general availability. We offer competitive salary and meaningful early-stage equity in the form of stock options. We also offer unlimited PTO (with minimum vacation recommendations), flexible benefits, a home office stipend, and more.

PTO & Parental Leave 

We offer unlimited PTO with minimum vacation recommendations and encourage our team members to take time off whenever they need it. We also offer 90 days of paid parental leave.

Team off-sites & conferences

A few times a year, the whole company meets to facilitate in-person collaboration and team bonding. In addition, we actively encourage participation at conferences and events.

And more!

We make time for our remote team to learn together and have fun together even if we are miles away. We have virtual game hours, and an internal tech talk series.
