Software Engineer Intern, Fall 2023 - Platform and Cloud



Software Engineering
Posted on Saturday, May 6, 2023

At Yugabyte, we are on a mission to become the default transactional database for the cloud. We are well underway on this journey with YugabyteDB, the open source, high-performance, distributed SQL database that runs on any cloud and enables developers to get instantly productive using well-known APIs. We are looking for talented and driven people to join us on our ambitious mission and help us build a lasting and impactful company.

We announced a $188M Series C round at a $1.3B valuation in October 2021, however we very much believe we are still in the early stages of our company’s journey. The transactional database market is estimated to grow from $40B in 2021 to $64B by 2025. Given our database is cloud-native by design, has on-demand horizontal scalability, and allows for geographical distribution of data using built-in replication, we are extremely well-positioned to address the market need for geo-distributed, high-scale, high-performance wordloads.

As a Software Engineering Intern in the Platform & Cloud team, you will be designing and implementing a distributed control plane to manage the life cycle of YugabyteDB. The control plane is responsible for unified multiverse management of YugabyteDB across public cloud providers (AWS, Google Cloud, Azure), Kubernetes environments (open-source, GKE, EKS, PKS, AKS), and on-prem data centers including fault-domain aware provisioning, rolling upgrades, security, monitoring, and day-2 operations (backups, scaling etc).

We are looking for passionate students who exemplify collaboration, who are driven and thrive in a fast-paced startup environment, and who have a strong desire to learn how to build an internet-scale, extensible control plane with strong emphasis on simplicity and user experience. You’ll work alongside the best and the brightest engineering talent in the industry. As a core participant of your team, you’ll design your changes, estimate engineering efforts, implement and test your changes, push to releases, and triage production issues. This is a Fall 2023 opportunity, we are no longer hiring for the summer.
