Senior Go software engineer (stealth startup)


An organization I’m helping out is currently looking for a number of candidates to join in over the next few months.

The focus is currently on finding a Senior Go Software Engineer, with OS, networking and storage knowledge.

The organization is a young stealth startup based in the US and looking to hire Europe or North America based staff. It’s all remote work from your home with a few weeks a year of international travel for team meetings. They offer competitive compensation with the ability to join in as either an employee or a contractor.

The entire product stack is built on Open Source and a significant part of an applicant’s job will be to directly engage and contribute to new or existing Open Source projects.

As this is an early stage startup looking for early joiners on its engineering team, focus will be on candidates with preexisting experience in the Open Source community and with the ability to take ownership and drive a project to completion.
