Senior Software Engineer

Overview:

Coho's engineering team is smart, enthusiastic, highly qualified and motivated to change the datacenter from the ground up. The team is a combination of PhDs and experienced, pragmatic, practical and productive engineers, who collaborate in a high-trust environment with the hardware and software resources available to do excellent work.

Joining Coho is an opportunity to experience first-hand the growth of a dynamic high-tech startup and grow along with it, to make your contribution and create real value for our customers and our team.

We have a fantastic workplace environment where everything is customizable, from work arrangements and roles down to the contents of the fridge.

Responsibilities:

Contribute to building our products and in-house infrastructure. We have large and growing activities around automated provisioning and monitoring, continuous integration, analytics, UI, software-defined networking, and more. The role combines hackery with software engineering - candidates should be keen to dive into the nuts and bolts (of which there are many), while at the same time be able to define and pursue a coherent vision for the systems they build. This is a permanent full time position.

Qualifications:

Proven software engineering skills. You must be an able developer with a solid foundation in computer science. Our tools of choice are primarily Python, C, JavaScript, and shell scripting, but strong candidates with differing skill sets are encouraged to apply.
Experience with Linux tools and development environment.
Good understanding of OS and networking fundamentals.
Evidence of participation in or understanding of Open Source software development is a strong plus.

How to Apply:

Strong applications will include a brief cover letter that tells us a little bit about your background, and what interests you in joining the team at Coho.
