View all DataStax jobs

We’re looking for talented software engineers with a passion for learning and a systems-oriented view of software engineering to join our team working full-time on the core of our proprietary database based on Apache Cassandra. In this position you will be working in an important role on a complex infrastructure project used by many major organizations across the world, collaborating with fellow engineers within DataStax to improve the project. If you want to work on the most interesting problems of your career with the most collaborative and skilled peers you’ve ever worked with, this might be the role for you!

In this position, you’ll take on a critical role on the core of our platform, working on new features, enhancements, and bug-fixing on the core of our distributed database. Engineers on this team collaborate extensively with internal teams across DataStax to coordinate for releases, supporting existing customers through defect fixes and improvements, and reviewing and advising on documentation for the project.

We’re looking for engineers that have a knack for untangling complex knots in code-bases and concurrent systems, with expertise in a C-lineage language (C++, Java, C#, etc). A gut passion for quality, elegance, and simplicity in solutions and code is critical in this role and on this project. If you’re comfortable navigating multi-threaded systems and applying algorithms in large-scale software systems (or if you want to be!), this would probably be a great fit for you.

As a remote first company, things are a little different at DataStax. We primarily communicate via chat on Slack, via video calls, or via email async. This environment is awesome for the right person; work-life balance, the ability to focus without interruption for long periods of time, being able to spend time with your family and greet the kids when they get home from school: all of these are huge benefits of working from home, with the added benefit of being included in discussions and decision-making with an engineering org that’s fully remote. Given how much of our work takes place via text and remotely, it’s critical that you have excellent written communication skills and that you’re a self-starter; nobody will be watching over your shoulder in a cubicle here!

Job Functions
  • Author, debug, and improve code in the core of DataStax Enterprise
  • Collaborate with other engineers and field team members at DataStax on new feature development and improvements to the platform
  • Help prepare different teams for DSE releases (documentation, field, etc)
  • Work remotely full-time, discussing things with your peers over Slack, email, or video chat

Job Requirements
  • Comfortable in a c-lineage language that supports the OO paradigm (C++, Java, C#, rust, go, etc)
  • Ability to work autonomously, self-manage your time, and to an extent self-direct when given high level strategic priorities
  • Ability to communicate clearly with peers and stakeholders via text (JIRA, slack, email)
  • A desire to learn and grow daily, both technically and w/soft-skills interpersonally
  • An open-minded and collaborative attitude
  • Experience with concurrency
