At Webscale, we understand the evolving cloud technology landscape and the challenges that organizations face in harnessing its full potential. That’s why we’ve embarked on a mission to provide ecommerce businesses, digital experience providers, and SaaS vendors AI-rich tooling through our revolutionary CloudFlow platform. CloudFlow enables businesses to inject intelligence into their Kubernetes operations like never before and reimagine their distributed computing and cloud cost optimization strategies.

Since acquiring Section.io, Webscale is expanding its intelligent CloudFlow offering with edge-native computing. To meet these changing needs, we’re looking to add an experienced engineer that will directly influence the success of the expanded product offering by contributing to all parts of the agile software development cycle, from design to release. The code they write will run as part of a pipeline that serves hundreds of millions of HTTP requests daily.

Our primary measure of progress is deploying working, peer-reviewed software multiple times a week. We are committed to clean, high-quality code and apply continuous attention to technical excellence with team-wide collaborations on design and implementation.
