Hi! 👋 We’re Pipekit, and our mission is to make cloud native pipelines delightful for developers. We offer a managed service for Argo Workflows that helps data teams do batch data processing, ML training, and CI/CD at a scale no other tool can match.

Data teams are woefully under-resourced when it comes to having infrastructure that scales, and Pipekit fills that void for them.

🤔 Why work at Pipekit

Pipekit enables scale at the highest levels for companies running the most compute-intensive data operations in the world. We build products that solve their scale pains and ultimately unlock scaling to infinity.

We’re a customer- and community-centric startup that has been hitting major milestone after milestone, and we’re now building out our founding engineering team. We raised a Seed round from prominent investors to give us years of runway, including GV, Uncorrelated Ventures, Surface Ventures, Shasta Ventures, and Liquid 2 Ventures.

The Senior Software Engineer at Pipekit plays a key role in scaling the core foundations of Pipekit products to meet the requirements of the largest enterprise customers. They also help make Argo Workflows more accessible to individual developers and organizations of any size by contributing back to the community.

Finally, as cofounders, our focus everyday is to create an environment where you are set up to do your best work. You will have a meaningful impact on culture, engineering process, and Pipekit development experiences
