Building the best cloud for developers.
As cloud computing continues to abstract away application workloads from traditional underlying hardware, teams of developers should be able to build and run their applications without having to think about their infrastructures. The mission of DigitalOcean’s Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) organization is to deliver managed services that give our customers a development-focused view instead of an infrastructure-focused view enabling our users to focus on their core mission of developing their business.
Candidates who have strong computer science and programming fundamentals and experience and interest building scalable systems that abstract away complex infrastructures in order to provide a simple, user-friendly development environment for our internal and external engineering customers.
The Platform as a Service team is all about giving developers super powers! We're building a powerful, easy to use set of services to remove the cruft of getting an App in production faster. From managed databases to Kubernetes to fully automated App build, deploys, and scaling we do it all. As developers, we're responsible for simplifying developer workflows on DigitalOcean so they can focus on their core mission of building their business🚀
Senior Engineer I
Our mission is to enable developers around the world to accelerate outcomes by offering the best cloud infrastructure for their applications and workloads. We aim to simplify access to Compute, Network and Storage resources, securely, reliably and on-demand through the cloud.
Candidates who are systems and detail oriented, understand various types of storage, can think at scale and are passionate about quality. Our customers rely on us to safely store multi-petabytes of their data that they can reliably access whenever they wish. Our code must be robust, ultra-scalable and fast!
Customer's data is our top priority. The storage team works hard to provide world class, reliable, and fast systems to store data and continually develop new products. Working at DO allows me to solve complex problems, and our remote culture has enabled me to build strong relationships with my teammates.
Working in compute is all about assembling our stack in new and different ways to compose faster, scalable products for our customers. I love the fact that we have people with lots of different perspectives who all have a voice when it comes to fitting all the pieces together. It always results in something better in the end.
Senior Engineer II
Within Engineering Services, my team builds the systems that provide actionable operational intelligence about the operating conditions of the hardware and services that comprise DigitalOcean. Our job is to help other engineers understand how the services they own are behaving in order to drive ever better experiences for our customers.
Working with and leading a team of Network magicians has been an extremely rewarding experience for me. The stack my team manages spans all the way from products like VPC, Load Balancers, Firewalls, Floating IP, Let's Encrpyt, Domains and DNS which enable users to manage their resources in a flexible, secure way to core networking services like Public Encapsulation, HV datapath, IP Address Management, and so on, which manage the connectivity and latency for all the resources users create. Given the breath of impact and complexity involved, the problems we face can be challenging and multi faceted. I have always loved solving complex problems and Team Networking at DO keeps me highly motivated!
Senior Manager, Engineering
Our mission as the builders of the bridges that connect customers to DO products is to support the DO mission of simplifying cloud computing so developers can spend more time building software that changes the world. We make it easy for customers to interact with DO products, collaborate with their teammates, and not stress about how much it’s all going to cost.
Candidates who are passionate about working in a tight-knit team environment while making simple, elegant products that help make difficult things easier.
I've known of DigitalOcean ever since my first hackathon in college, and it was the first cloud platform that I had been exposed to. I've always admired DO's commitment to simplicity and care in its products, and how well engaged they've been with the larger developer community. Ever since joining, I've been continually impressed by the care that the team puts into the front-end codebase, and the level of thoughtful collaboration we take to make sure we are doing the right thing. In the first couple of months I've been able to work on multiple impactful customer-facing projects, and it's been refreshing to have my input as an engineer reflected in the final product we ship to customers. It's clear that on the UI we are always striving to continuously simplify what can often be a complex experience when it comes to the cloud.
As a software engineer at DigitalOcean, I feel respected for my technical skills and experience, as well as for my ability to collaborate. I am given the autonomy to work in ways that support me in excelling and growing. I enjoy working with the intelligent, experienced, and kind teammates at DO. I am supported by DigitalOcean’’s great People Team, and the benefits extend to helping me care for my family. I would encourage anyone who wants to have these experiences to apply for a position at DigitalOcean.
Senior Engineer II
As part of the customer experience organization, working on building the UI, I get to be on the frontline of what makes DigitalOcean so great; the customer. In Customer Experience we get to work with product owners, UX designers, and backend teams to create simple, elegant experiences for complicated products. And we get to deliver those experiences directly to engineers just like us.
