Testing Infrastructure and Release Engineer
Timescale, Inc
1d ago

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.

Responsibilities :

  • Play a core role in helping to design and develop testing infrastructure for a distributed database.
  • Develop, test, and release new testing infrastructure and release features and capabilities.
  • Continually improve, optimize, and test the infrastructure that you build.
  • Be an enthusiastic and personable teammate, receiving and providing code reviews, and otherwise partnering and helping other engineers.
  • Requirements :

  • Bachelor’s degree in computer science or equivalent experience.
  • 5+ years engineering experience.
  • Expertise building testing, release or CI / CD systems.
  • Experience in SQL (especially PostgreSQL) highly desirable (but not required).
  • Experience with Golang and / or C are prefered.
  • Solid knowledge of concurrency control, data replication, and / or distributed systems.
  • Passionate about building high-quality infrastructure and development tools.
  • Time Series is everywhere, and Timescale is helping developers and companies make sense of it.

    Businesses worldwide trust TimescaleDB for mission-critical applications from industries as varied as manufacturing, finance, utilities, telecom, mining, ad tech, oil & gas, and the smart home.

  • Applications built on TimescaleDB include IOT, complex monitoring systems, industrial machine data analysis, geospatial asset tracking, operational data warehousing, and financial risk management;
  • via the edge, on premise, and cloud deployments.

    TimescaleThe team is based in New York City (HQ) and Stockholm, and is backed by top tier investors, including Benchmark Capital, New Enterprise Associates, Icon Ventures, and Two Sigma Ventures
