Employment Type

Full time



We’re looking for a Founding Engineer to help make foundational technology decisions and mentor a growing team. You'll build software that companies trust to shuffle packets around quickly and securely. Performance, reliability, and security are key. This would be a great role for a seasoned engineer looking to join a fast-growing security startup.

Our Tech

We use a combination of Elixir/Phoenix and Rust. If you love solving complex, distributed systems problems and/or enjoy hacking on low-level networking code that interfaces closely with the Linux kernel, this role is ideal for you!

If you're not an expert in any of the languages we use, that's ok! While a certain amount of Elixir and Rust proficiency is ideal for this role, we're happy to bring the right candidate up to speed. We value motivation to learn quickly and tackle challenging technical problems above all else.

What makes this role unique

  • Your work will be public — our codebase is open source.
  • Work closely with our users to ship features and fix bugs.
  • Be a founding engineer - You'll make and own core architecture decisions, shape company culture, and help set the bar for quality and execution.

Bonus points if you

  • Make contributions to open-source projects.
  • Love to write and share your expertise with others.
  • Previously worked at a startup or have an interest in startups.
  • Have experience in Elixir/Pheonix
