DevOps Engineer

At ReadySet we’re building a MySQL and Postgres wire-compatible caching layer that precomputes the results of prepared statements (think parameterized SQL queries) and incrementally updates these results over time as the underlying data in your database changes.  ReadySet makes it easy for developers to build performant web, analytical, and internal applications regardless of whether they are deployed in 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.

For the DevOps engineer role, we’re looking for people who are excited to architect and build out our on-prem and cloud service 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 and build out our product offerings the right way from the get go.  

Continuous learning and growth 
ReadySet is based on research out of MIT. We work on cutting-edge problems in distributed systems, host regular educational seminars from both internal and external speakers, and attend conferences to interact with the community at large. We’re committed to enabling every one of our team members to continue to learn and grow. 

Emphasis on teamwork with a safe environment to fail 
Our team works closely together to solve some of the hardest, most interesting problems in distributed systems. We prioritize building a culture that fosters a safe environment to learn and fail– our team members are never afraid to discuss challenges or ask for help. 

Diversity and inclusion
ReadySet is a fully-remote company that offers flexible work hours to any team member regardless of location. This enables us to work with the most talented, diverse group of people from around the world.

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.

Game nights, educational-seminars, on-sites, and engagement with the community at large
We make time for our remote team to learn together and have fun together even if we are oceans away. We have weekly virtual game nights (or mornings/afternoons, depending on where you are in the world!), an internal educational seminar series, in-person onsite events a few times a year, and actively encourage participation at research and OSS conferences and events. 

We also offer co-working spaces, premium U.S. healthcare, and more!
