Okteto provides a local development experience for cloud applications. In a world of ever-emerging technologies, the number of tools to manage cloud-native applications becomes more overwhelming every year. This vastly increases the cognitive load for developers, decreases their productivity and forces them to become experts in areas different from their own. With Okteto, you code locally in your favorite IDE and Okteto takes care of updating your application in your development environment to provide continuous feedback as you code. No commit, build, push, or deploy required.

At Okteto, we believe that teams should focus on what they love, and that's why we dedicate our efforts to making the world of developers more friendly and streamlined than ever. Our passionate team believes deeply in this mission: make developers and teams more productive by developing cloud-native applications so they can focus more on innovation. And this is why we need you. This is a great role for technical people who enjoy speaking with customers.
