Compose (YC S11) is hiring support engineers
on Apr 23, 2015 | hide
Our customer base is growing quickly, and we want your combination of tech and people skills to help our customers solve problems and get the most out of their databases at Compose. We operate a fleet of various databases, so there's something for everyone: MongoDB, PostgreSQL, Redis, Elasticsearch, RethinkDB, InfluxDB and likely many more! If you are a developer, DevOps/SRE magician, or database junkie and know how to help developers with technical questions, we want to talk to you. You will be most effective if you have an inquisitive nature, love to learn, and can read and tweak source code written in a variety of languages. We're not just looking to fight fires, we're looking to prevent them. We pride ourselves in providing top-notch support and guidance, so being able to communicate effectively with empathy and compassion is a must.

This is the perfect position for a smart hacker who wants to gain experience at a customer-focused infrastructure startup. Spending time with our customers and product will let you improve your tech chops vastly, and should be solid preparation for a high-end distributed systems engineering position (we need those too, so if you start on support and do a great job, there's a huge amount of room for growth).

We offer market salaries, the standard suite of benefits, and some unique perks. You can choose to work out of one of our two offices (do you like amazing weather? or amazing BBQ?), or work from home.

Our best hires are tenacious and play well with others. Sound like you? Talk to us about the engineering problems we help customers with every day. Email us jobs+support@compose.io and we'll pass along work exercises so you can get a feel for the day to day work.
