About Us
Okera is revolutionizing the way companies manage their data across on-premise and cloud-based data stores. We simplify the complexity of data management, governance, and operations, enabling our customers to widen access to data-centric employees that is larger than previously imaginable. We boast several Fortune 500 customers and are funded by Silicon Valley top-tier venture capital firms.

About the Job:
Our backend team is responsible for adding core support for our features, including: changes to the data engine, integrations with customer systems (authentication, data processing frameworks and storage systems), query performance, and adding functionality in support of our frontend. Given our small team size, everyone ends up in all parts of the code (client libraries, cluster management, query execution).

We have a continual stream of interesting design problems related to a diverse set of fields (distributed systems, database systems, high-performance computing) as well as engineering-oriented tasks stemming from our integrations with an array of computation and storage systems. You will have the opportunity to both leverage your existing expertise and to grow your skill set. Very quickly you will design and lead a significant feature and interact with major customers.
Requirements:
Strong expertise programming in Java and C++
Experience with a cloud platform: AWS, Azure, GCE, etc.
Prefered experience with some of the following: a) docker & kubernetes b) big data (Hadoop/Spark/Hive) c) databases
You have strong communication skills: you can express yourself clearly, help others come to an understanding, and write well.
You are extremely self-directing: you can find answers on your own, drive towards solutions, and find the question that we should be asking.
You are a continual learner: between the range of tech that we use, and those that we integrate with, our skills sets are constantly expanding.
You have good decision-making skills.
You value product over features: it’s about the value we provide to the users.
Benefits:
Great casual office environment in San Francisco, close to public transportation
Unlimited vacation days
Medical, dental and vision, commuter benefits, along with a 401(k) plan
