We need extraordinary engineers to join our team. You will act as both architect and programmer : both designing and coding the testing infrastructure for our database product.
Timescale already has an extensive regression test suite for our product that runs as a single-node primary but need to develop better infrastructure to test our scale-out multi-node capabilities.
This is a technically challenging and exciting problem because the infrastructure for such tests needs to be able to produce reproducible test output while at the same time test all the vagaries of distributed environment (connection drops, latency spikes, intermittent failures, permanent failures, etc.).
This is not a QA / testing role : our core database engineers will be writing the test cases, rather you would be responsible for creating the infrastructure to run these tests.
Besides testing the database for correctness, this system would also need to be able to test performance and protect against performance regressions.
You would be working closely with our core database developers to design a system that can effectively push our database to its limits in a distributed environment.
The second main responsibility of this role is release engineering. Our product is distributed on a variety of platforms and environments : Linux, Mac, Windows, Raspberry Pis, high-powered servers, on-bare-metal, in docker, etc.
You would need to automate packaging and distribution across all of these heterogeneous environments using a build-farm or similar infrastructure.
This is a full time position. We are headquartered in NYC but the majority of our engineers work remotely throughout North America and Europe.
Time Series is everywhere, and Timescale is helping developers and companies make sense of it.
