About The Job

At Spectro Cloud, we are in search of a talented individual to become an integral part of our Engineering team, playing a pivotal role in shaping the future of our cutting-edge Palette platform.

As a Software Engineer within our organization, you will be at the forefront of building an always-on, self-healing, and declarative platform specifically engineered for the management of both infrastructure and applications. You will have the opportunity to contribute significantly by designing, optimizing, and streamlining GoLang-based microservices that serve as the foundation of our platform. Proficiency in Kubernetes is required - it lies at the very heart of our contemporary cloud-native, data center and edge solutions.

Your responsibilities will also include ensuring the seamless operation of our platform through a combination of automation, scripting, and rigorous testing. Our organization places a strong emphasis on code quality, and your commitment to producing clean and efficient code is highly regarded.

Collaboration is of utmost importance. You will work closely with cross-functional teams to create scalable, dependable, and secure solutions that push boundaries.

You will excel as a Software Engineer at Spectro Cloud if you thrive in ambiguity and can deliver value amidst unclear requirements. Success hinges upon your capacity to tackle intricate challenges through a series of incremental steps. It entails embracing test-and-learn methodologies rather than focussing solely on heads-down development. We highly value independence and self-motivation, both individual and team advancements frequently assume crucial roles within our dynamic work culture.

  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science or a related field
  • 10+ years of relevant work experience
  • Expertise in GoLang programming
  • Comprehensive understanding of Kubernetes, including the operator pattern and Cluster API
  • Strong skills in designing REST APIs
  • Solid grasp of microservices architecture
  • Experience with cloud-based platforms (AWS, Azure, GCP, etc.)

  • Fluency with common Linux commands
  • Familiarity with SQL and databases like MongoDB
  • Highly preferred: CKA or CKAD certification

The Hiring Process

At Spectro Cloud, we highly value your time and dedication throughout the hiring process. Therefore, we aim to ensure that our interactions are efficient and focused on delivering value.

Our interview process for Engineering roles typically comprises three to four stages:

  • One or two technical interviews, including hands-on coding assessments
  • Final round to assess team fit and engage in detailed discussions

The majority of our interviews are conducted via Zoom. We recommend having a laptop with a reliable internet connection, and if possible, a functional camera for a more engaging experience.
