Software Engineer (PuppetDB, Clojure, Postgres)

at Puppet, Inc. Remote, North America

Hi, I’m Eric Thompson, Sr. Manager of Engineering at Puppet,

At Puppet we build some of the most loved automation software for enterprises of all sizes. We are searching for a software engineer to help with the development, maintenance, and testing of PuppetDB – Puppet’s PostgreSQL backed, Clojure based data warehouse. Our work directly impacts the user experience of our software and we keep the customer in mind at all times when developing features.

This is an opportunity to love your job, your colleagues and your life, given our excellent benefits, flexible working environment and career building initiatives. Come work with us. Below is a list of qualities applicants might want to have. If in doubt, apply!

At Puppet, engineers on feature delivery teams collaborate closely with architects and members of the product team to influence what we build and how we build it. Our team works in an agile, iterative fashion, breaking up large ideas into small, concrete chunks that can be implemented quickly to deliver value or further learning. We work collectively, allowing us to accomplish far more as a team than could be accomplished alone.

  • Be familiar with Linux, POSIX, etc.
  • Have experience with Ruby, Python, Bash, CI (Jenkins, Travis CI, etc.)
  • Have worked with a distributed team
  • Be able to identify the strengths and weakness of proposed solutions, and to pragmatically evaluate the relevant trade-offs with your peers

  • Help teammates and encourage growth in those around you
