A Little About Us

Innovative, collaborative minds wanted. The world loves Postgres. We envision a world where organizations thrive by harnessing the full power of Postgres, the world’s fastest growing and most loved and used open source database. Our mission is to enable data teams everywhere to harness the full power of Postgres, whether on premises or in the cloud, with high availability, reliability, scalability, and security.

We’re #1 in Postgres. We aspire to become #1 in Postgres AI. We’ve been major contributors to Postgres since the beginning and we are proud to call thousands of boundary-pushing customers our partners. Proud though we are, we are not resting on our laurels. There’s plenty of work to do. The good news is that everything we do will impact Postgres, which is to say that it will impact the world. No pressure.

EDB empowers organizations to take control of their data. As one of the leading contributors to the vibrant and fast-growing Postgres community, EDB is committed to driving innovation in AI, data and enterprise database technology. Our work is fueled by creative, dedicated people who are committed to help our customers and the community take Postgres everywhere. Join us!

Role Overview

We are in search of a talented Backend developer with a strong background in systems and data integration. Our team leverages databases, event streaming, Cloud Service Provider (CSP) services, and EDB software to create fault-tolerant and high-performance data solutions. We're looking for candidates who are passionate about exploring cutting-edge literature and technologies in machine learning, analytics, and data engineering to enhance our transactional systems excellence.

In this role, you'll work with EDB's data integration and migration team to deliver next-generation data movement and integrated data platform solutions to our customers. Together, we'll build systems that not only attract customers to Postgres but also amplify the value of their data.

What your impact will be:

  • Develop backend systems that power exceptional user experiences by working closely with frontend engineers, designers, and product management.
  • Collaborate with our globally distributed engineering team using tools like GitHub, Jira, and Slack
  • Participate in all stages of the product development life cycle spanning ideation, design, implementation, testing, deployment, and operation.
  • Contribute to continuous improvement of our platform through knowledge sharing and mentoring within the team and across EDB organizations.
  • Approach problem-solving with an inquisitive, innovative, and detail-oriented mindset while maintaining a focus on delivering value to our customers.

What you will bring:

  • 3+ years experience in a back-end development role using Java along with Go or Python
  • 2+ years experience with distributed systems (e.g. database systems, Kubernetes clusters, cloud infrastructure)
  • Proficiency in building production software components (CLIs, services, clients) that interact over HTTP and gRPC.
  • Experience with AWS, Azure, or GCP (Terraform or other infra-as-code solutions preferred)
  • Comfortable working iteratively in our lightweight Scrum process and open to feedback from others
  • Calm and methodical approach with good communication skills

What will give you an edge:

  • Understanding of the Postgres ecosystem and experience developing against Postgres
  • Experience working with Oracle database systems, especially change-data-capture and REDO log interactions.
  • Experience with Apache Kafka, Debezium, Software Engineer (Test Automation) AWS Kinesis, Azure Event Hub, or GCP PubSub
  • Experience with ANTLR
  • “Full stack” experience into the front-end layer with basic understanding of React, Vue.js, and/or Typescript.
  • Experience with deploying and operating software on Kubernetes.
  • Strong opinions on the state of data engineering, ML/AI, and data movement solutions or academic literature – and what’s next in the field.
  • Experience with devops/SRE responsibilities and have worked in a “you build it, you run it” environment.
  • Experience with logs and metrics integration (Prometheus, Grafana, CSP services)
  • Experience with change-data-capture (CDC) / ETL / ELT systems (Debezium, FiveTran)
  • Experience with Spark, Flink, Hive Metastore (or other metadata/catalog stores)
  • Experience with the Snowflake or Databricks platforms.
  • Involvement in OSS communities (not just Postgres, though that’s a double plus!)
