Remote Senior/Staff+ Software Engineer

Website Cloudsmith

Build It. Ship It. Own It.

Cloudsmith is a fully managed cloud-based artifact management service.

We aim to sit right in the center of every company’s critical infrastructure as the single source of truth for all software. Our customers ship faster and wiser while ensuring the safety of their software supply chain, maximizing developer productivity, and protecting their critical systems from outages in public ecosystems. We handle the artifact management, so they don’t have to.

We are building the world’s source of truth for all software that flows between developers, machines, and services, made to be cloud-native from day zero. Our team focuses on delivering simplicity, security by default, and visibility for engineering, operations, and security teams worldwide. We’re fully remote, and our crew is distributed globally.

We’re a startup, and that comes with all of the challenges a typical startup has. Startups are hard work but also unbelievably rewarding and career/life-defining. Not everything about work in a startup fits into a neat box, but we embrace the chaos. We live by thinking fast, acting fast, and sometimes failing fast. Experiment and flow forward.

We seek individuals passionate about their craft, ready to help build a globally distributed service. You will have a startup mentality of not shying away from the things that need doing, caring about it deeply, and ensuring we build it, ship it, and own it; while using empathy to share and collaborate with the rest of the team to plan, implement and maintain the product and infrastructure.

In short, your most important qualities:

  • Smart!
  • Gets Things Done!
  • An Awesome Human Being!
