We’re building a different kind of IT company, one that meets our customers and our own team on their turf, on their terms. We’re growing fast right now and you can be part of it with all the opportunities to add value that come with that. Curious? Great! That’s what we like in a Softie!
Our Softies are a diverse and globally distributed team that are on a mission to change the future of data infrastructure with task-specific hardware and open source. We aim to do all the hard work so that our customers can adopt the best open source has to offer in a bulletproof and resilient way. Our team thinks differently, working as an integrated but globally dispersed team of experts in hardware manufacturing, firmware, software, infrastructure and everything in between.
We’re looking to recruit Linux systems engineers into our Product Engineering team, to drive new initiatives that accelerate our customer projects and bolster our product definition work. You’ll be working in a cross functional team alongside our software and platform engineering teams and our commercial teams.
Product Engineering works on quick-turnaround new technology projects to demonstrate advanced usage of our cloud appliances and make it easy for our partners, systems team, and our customers to deploy similar solutions. This can consist of first-time technology deployment/testing, operating production infrastructure, performance benchmarking and open-source software development. We aim to automate and document everything we do, to ensure it can be easily consumed by others, both internally and by our channel partners and customers. Examples of recent projects include containerisation, infrastructure as code, and observability.

You tell us! This role gives you the freedom to live and work where you can be at your best. We operate globally and also have some pretty cool offices worldwide. Time travel (aka time zone optimisation) is one of our super powers and we use this to our best advantage in setting up teams and how we work. This role can be based remotely in the US or UK, or in one of our offices there, or a hybrid.
We work with like-minded companies across all of our business. We’re not into vendor lock-in of any type, we don’t do the hard sell and we treat time and attention as valuable resources. Recruitment agents, please don’t send us unsolicited resumes or CVs unless we’ve asked you to work with us on the role - it just shows us you’re not our type.
