Open Source Engineer

Remote · Senior

About The Position

Aqua provides the next generation security solution for cloud native applications (Kubernetes, Docker, serverless), the fastest growing segment in software development and virtualization today!

Building on the successes of our existing projects like kube-bench and kube-hunter, we're creating a dedicated Open Source team at Aqua to contribute more broadly to Cloud Native open source. And we're looking for Open Source developers to join us!

The Ideal candidates will have an existing role in the open source community: perhaps you are a maintainer on a cloud native project, a Docker captain or CNCF ambassador, or you are actively participating in a Kubernetes SIG or CNCF working group, particularly one related to security. 

What will you do:

As an Open Source engineer, you will primarily be developing and maintaining open source cloud native projects. As well as working on Aqua's new and future projects, you may spend time contributing to community projects related to cloud native security. 

This is a new, small and distributed team, and as one of the early members you'll help establish effective working patterns and processes, and you'll be willing and able to help your peers solve problems as necessary. 

The Open Source team also plays an evangelism role, for example writing blog posts and speaking at meet-ups and conferences about the technologies we're building and working on. Not every member of the team needs to be an active evangelist, but if that's something you are interested in pursuing, we will encourage and support you to do so as part of this role. 

Requirements

  • 4+ years software development experience 
  • Proficiency in Golang; other languages like Python, C, bash or Rust are a plus
  • Great understanding of Cloud Native technologies: containers, Kubernetes, CI/CD systems etc. Experience with public clouds (AWS, Azure or GCP) and DevOps automation technologies is also desirable.
  • Experience contributing to open source projects 
  • Interest in security and securing cloud native systems
  • Experience of working as part of a remote team, and comprehension of the challenges that remote working can present (and confidence that it won't drive you crazy!) 
  • Participation in your local cloud native community, for example attending meet-ups and talking with your peers. 
  • Excellent communication skills, with fluent written and spoken English
