About Diagrid

At Diagrid, our focus is on application developers. We want developers to build amazing applications and offload the hard distributed systems problems when building resilient services. Diagrid's mission is to boost developer productivity by providing tools and APIs for building cloud native applications.

Job Description

Who We Are
We believe that open-source software, open standards and APIs are the greatest transformational tools for organizations in the modern software development era.
Our mission at Diagrid is to provide developers with APIs and tools that help them focus on their code and not on infrastructure. As online digital services need to handle more load and run on multiple clouds or on-premises environments, programming to higher level abstractions delivers consistent, secure and reliable code that is easily portable and helps organizations de-risk their projects.
Diagrid is founded by the creators of the Dapr and KEDA open-source projects, and who led the user experience, design and development of hyper-scale infrastructure cloud services, serverless platforms and open-source projects at Microsoft.
We are backed by top VC firms and supported with industry leading investors and advisors including Joe Beda (Kubernetes Co-Founder, former Co-Founder / CTO at Heptio) Matt Klein (Creator of Envoy, Lyft), Mark Russinovich (CTO, Microsoft Azure), William Morgan (Creator of Linkerd, CEO Buoyant), Seth Vargo (Senior Staff Engineer, Google), Kris Nova (Kubernetes and distributed systems engineer), Adam Gross (Former CEO, Heroku), Sri Viswanath (Former CTO, Atlassian), Adam Frankl (Dev Marketing Expert, Neo4J & JFrog), and Roopak Venkatakrishnan (Head of platforms, Bolt).
The Role
As a Backend Engineer in Diagrid Cloud, you’ll own the design, architecture and implementation of the backend services of our core products. You will factor into your work user experience, security, performance and reliability to deliver unparalleled product experience.
Our core commercial products include Diagrid Conductor, a fully managed Dapr on Kubernetes Service that streamlines the day 2 operations of Dapr on Kubernetes, and Diagrid Cloud Runtime APIs - a fleet of on-demand, serverless sidecars that bring Dapr's APIs to developers using any compute platform, be it in the cloud, on the edge or even directly from the browser.
You will get to work with cutting edge technologies in a self organizing team of amazing and supportive teammates and tackle some of the hardest problems in distributed computing.
‍You’re a good fit if you love tackling complex distributed systems challenges, are a team player, eager to constantly learn and improve, and have an innate passion for coding and open-source.
