Software Engineer - SaaS Infrastructure at Rubrik
Palo Alto, CA, US


ABOUT THE JOB

As an engineer on the Polaris Platform team, you’ll own the fundamental infrastructure components that all other polaris product teams at Rubrik build upon, including our microservices architecture, Kubernetes deployment system, distributed job workflow engine, and horizontally scalable MySQL based datastore. This is an interesting time to join as we are hitting the scalability limits in each of our core layers - Kubernetes services, job framework and MySQL. We need your help in re-architecting these systems to achieve true horizontal scalability.

Some challenges include:

    Scalability: As a high-growth company, we have seen a huge growth year over year. This is accompanied by the number of Rubrik engineers who we support. As a result, our team is constantly re-imagining and engineering our platform infrastructure to support this growth.
    Stability: Stability around the clock is our top-most concern. We think about reliability at every layer of the stack, from individual infrastructure systems to the reliability of services owned by product teams at Rubrik.
