Systems engineer and frontend engineering role at Y-Combinator backed startup in San Francisco

Hi Everybody,

We're looking to add 1-2 systems engineers and one frontend engineer to our core team here in San Francisco (full time, one site only - job description below).  We just shipped the beta version of our streaming-SQL analytics database, PipelineDB, which is based on the PostgreSQL 9.4 core.  Feel free to check out our technical documentation as well for more info on the product and how it works.

If you, or anybody you know might be a good fit please email us at jobs <at>


Jeff Ferguson
President and Co-Founder

San Francisco, CA - Full Time Only

We're on a mission to build a new type of database for a modern world in which information is constantly moving, and moving fast. PipelineDB runs SQL queries continuously on large volumes of streaming data, giving companies the capability to easily develop scalable, realtime applications and services using only a familiar SQL interface. No application code is required.

This inherently involves solving a lot of big problems, many of which are novel. We’re looking for creative engineers who appreciate the value and freedom of choosing their own projects, approaches, and working with other top talent in a low distraction, streamlined work environment. Our small team has backgrounds from Berkeley, MIT, Facebook, Locu and AdRoll, and we're all doing exactly what we want to be doing: building a groundbreaking new product out of thin air.

We are well funded by top investors including SV Angel, Susa Ventures, Data Collective, Paul Buchheit, and more.

If you’ve been waiting for an opportunity like this, please send your resume and a quick blurb about yourself to jobs <at>

About the positions:

As an early stage engineer you'll ultimately own a very large part of the product. Which part of the product you take charge of depends on where your interests are, but there are several different potential areas of focus. You'll be entrusted to make sound architectural decisions as well as implement your vision effectively. We review each others' code for quality, awareness, and learning, so you'll spend some time contributing your valuable perspective to those efforts as well, although the vast majority of your time will be spent designing and building your own projects.

There is also an optional opportunity to help produce technical and marketing content, speak at conferences, interact with customers, and work as a developer evangelist.

Position #1) Frontend Engineer

San Francisco, CA - Full Time Only

Responsible for product UX/UI, building and managing our web presence, and helping with other design work and marketing material.  This role offers a great deal of creative freedom and we’re looking for somebody with the imagination to rethink how infrastructure products are positioned and used and the technical ability to implement that vision effectively.

This role requires a strong blend of design sense and frontend engineering ability.

Please send resumes and portfolios (*required*) to jobs <at>


* Strong design sense (please send us a link to your portfolio/work)

* Strong HTML, CSS, and JavaScript skills

* Ability to implement your vision effectively

* Experience with a framework such as Django or Rails

Bonus points:

* Bachelor's degree or higher in CS or related field

* Experience with databases

* Experience with monitoring/operations/admin software

jobs <at>

Position #2) Systems Engineer


* Bachelor's degree or higher in CS or related field

* You've worked with large C/C++ systems in a Linux environment and are highly effective at navigating them

* You understand the difference between good code and correct code, and you care about testing

* Strong understanding of concurrency

* Strong system-level debugging skills--you are not intimidated by the obscurest of nondeterministic behaviors and race conditions

* Strong understanding of CS theory--you are able to translate theoretical concepts and academic research into practical code

* You have a habit of figuring out how something works before asking someone to explain it to you, regardless of how deep the rabbit hole goes

* Strong understanding of how performant storage systems work

Bonus points:

* Experience with/contributions to PostgreSQL, Storm, Kafka, Samza, Kinesis, or Esper

* Experience with database internals

* Experience building distributed systems

* Experience building realtime systems


* Full medical/dental/vision insurance

* No set work hours--work when you feel smart

* Choose your own setup

* No vacation policy other than that it is strongly encouraged

* Large equity ownership

Systems/PostgreSQL Administrator Position Open

Systems/PostgreSQL administrator:

Work from home for the only company still operating from the beginning 
of it all! No Venture Captial, No Debt, No missed paychecks, No B.S. 
Just honest, consulting and support for the PostgreSQL Centered Stack!

Command Prompt, Inc. is looking for an Intermediate systems/PostgreSQL 

Command Prompt has provided PostgreSQL support, development, and hosting 
since 1997. We are looking for another person to join our stellar group 
of PostgreSQL systems experts.

We seek someone who has a deep knowledge of at least one UNIX-like 
system (preferably Linux), and who knows how to manage heterogeneous 
systems. You can demonstrate strong skills in systems administration. 
You have a clear understanding of how to administer several systems that 
are mostly the same, but that have small local differences. If you do 
not feel comfortable saying, "I'm not familiar with that in your 
environment," then reading documentation, and coming back with a test 
plan for deployment that will reveal problems with your strategy, this 
is not a job for you.

The ability to imagine, propose, test, and deliver integrated and 
maintained solutions to users' problems is the key to success in this 
position. You work well in a team: you don't have to work 24 hours a 
day, because other people can always log into any system you maintain 
and know where everything is, how it got there, and how to add new 
things if they're needed.

You must know PostgreSQL administration, and understand how to set up, 
operate, and tune Postgres in elementary ways, such as installing from a 
package manager. You do not have to be a PostgreSQL hacker or guru, but 
if you are, that is a bonus.

You have systems administration capability with shell scripts, as well 
as either Perl or Python. As well as understanding (or quick to pick up) 
technologies such as PgPool, LVM2, LXC, AWS and LVM2.

You have an interest in working on varied projects that use varied (and 
sometimes legacy) technologies.

Command Prompt is a professional services company. You will be 
interfacing with customers, therefore customer service and 
professionalism is key.

Command Prompt employees work from their home offices. The position 
requires minimal travel. For this position, the successful candidate 
will be able to communicate effectively in English. English as a spoken 
second language is fine as long as the written skills are clear and 

This is a remote position and does not require residence in the United 

Applicants should send a resume to Angela Roberson, 
angela(at)commandprompt(dot)com, with the words "intermediate 
administrator" in the Subject line. Please include any text by way of a 
cover letter in the body of your email and not as a separate attachment.
