Who is Recruiting from Scratch:

Recruiting from Scratch is a premier talent firm that focuses on placing the best product managers, software, and hardware talent at innovative companies. Our team is 100% remote and we work with teams across the United States to help them hire. We work with companies funded by the best investors including Sequoia Capital, Lightspeed Ventures, Tiger Global Management, A16Z, Accel, DFJ, and more.

If you are a fit, the team will reach out to you about this role or any others that may be a fit for our clients.

Our Client

Our client exists to change the face of analytics computing; to accelerate performance, scale, and simplicity for data-intensive applications. Ultimately, they strive to change how the world will compute. And they’re looking for ambitious, hungry, talented engineers to help drive this change.

Their technology provides automatic parallelization and massive scale for analytics workloads, improving performance by 10x-100x, yet reducing aggregate operating expenses. This allows data engineers and data scientists to focus on solving business problems instead of dealing with the scalability and performance of their code.

Their mission has been endorsed by investments from Dell Technologies, from data platform providers such as Snowflake, and from special-purpose hardware providers such as Xilinx. Not to mention by ecstatic adoption by Fortune-10 customers.

Our client is the culmination of years of research in academia and industry and brings High Performance Computing (HPC) to data analytics for the first time. This is an opportunity to work with the creators of the first auto-parallelization compiler technology, which has long been a “holy grail” for researchers working on simplifying computing performance. Their mission - and hopefully yours - is to democratize access to parallel computing, and to accelerate data insights, ML, and AI in ways the industry can’t yet imagine. Join the team!

About the Role

Fresh off their Series A and announcement of a partnership with Snowflake, our client is looking for a Senior - Staff Software Engineer, Platform Service. This requires a strong entrepreneurship spirit and the ability to turn challenging technical ideas into reality. As a senior software engineer, you will be building and optimizing scalable distributed services that serve analytics capabilities that are orders of magnitude faster than the alternatives, while also much easier to use. This will have a significant impact on large-scale enterprise data infrastructure and capabilities.


  • Build and extend core components of their Cloud Platform's infrastructure
  • Architect systems and abstractions using the right available components and tools
  • Design and implement features that scale to thousands of concurrent users and user clusters, and thousands of cores per cluster
  • Debug production issues across services and levels of the stack
  • Enhance simplicity, robustness, efficiency and scalability of the their Cloud Platform
  • Lead various efforts in platform development and work with other Engineering leaders in product roadmap
  • Coach and mentor junior engineers with technical growth and career progression.
  • Help hire and build cloud Infrastructure team

Qualifications & Skills

  • BS or higher degree in Computer Science or a related field
  • 5+ years of experience in building distributed systems at scale.
  • Experience in writing production code (Java, C++, JavaScript, Python, etc.)
  • Experience architecting, developing, deploying, and operating large scale distributed systems at scale
  • Experience working with cloud technologies: Kubernetes (K8s), Docker, Terraform, microservices, AWS, Azure, GCP, etc.
  • Highly skilled in operating in a collaborative environment, strong communication skills, and impeccable attention to detail. Team-oriented, and able to implement important decisions.
  • Can synthesize coherent plans and priorities from the inputs of the team and business partners.


Our client provides a competitive salary, significant equity stake, employer paid medical, dental and vision, employer partially paid dependent benefits, employer paid life insurance, remote work and flexible working hours. Unlimited time off and new Macs also are a perk while working on a new technology offering.

Developing new complex technology and building an enterprise-grade software product around it is not easy - they are looking for technologists with strong passion and drive to make it happen!

Base Salary Range: $150,000 to $220,000
