mesosphere Mesosphere

Job Description:
The DC/OS Foundations Engineering Team builds the core components that make the Data Center Operating System ecosystem tick. From the initial point of customer experience (the installer) to the glue code that underpins how DC/OS services work together, we get to play with every piece of the system.

This team is consists of mostly DevOps engineers with a strong slant towards coding. However, all of us come with a strong operations or site reliability background. We feel at ease talking about the finer points of CAP or the differences between multi-thread or multi-process architectures.

We don't mind getting into the weeds with a hard to diagnose networking issue, and we troubleshoot such problems by leveraging our years of frontline firefighting in web operations. The OSI model isn't a stranger in our day to day work and on any given day we find ourselves working in almost every layer.

Some of us had experience with Mesos before coming on board at Mesosphere, and some of us didn't. However, having a strong understanding of distributed systems and systems engineering is key to our success. We’ve been solving Site Reliability Engineer problems through code before SRE or DevOps became a term, and take pride in creating software which people rely on and is a joy to use.

At Mesosphere, we pride ourselves on building insanely great products. On the DC/OS Foundations team, we like think that product begins with us.

  • Ship code that is well-tested and survives at internet scale
