ArangoDB is the leading native multi-model NoSQL database, with more than 4 million downloads. It combines the power of graphs, with JSON documents and a key-value store. ArangoDB makes all of our clients data models accessible with a single declarative query language. Developers can build high-performance applications using a convenient SQL-like query language or JavaScript extensions. ArangoDB itself is written in C++, but a lot of our tools surrounding it are written in Go. Oh, and did we mention it is open source?

We are looking for an experienced Kubernetes Engineer (m/f) to lead the development of our Kubernetes Operator. Our goal is to make working with data easy. And because we want to make it simpler for others, we have to work on solving complex problems like the simple deployment of ArangoDB in cluster environments. As a part of our dynamic team you will work on various components that integrate deeply into Kubernetes that make running stateful and resilient databases as easy as possible for our customers.

Our headquarter ArangoDB Inc. is in San Francisco (US), our secondary location is in Cologne (Germany) and our diverse team includes workmates at remote locations worldwide. So do you prefer your desk at home or do you want to join our modern family at one of our locations? Your choice.
