  • Full-time

Company Description

At Loodse, we are passionate about the potential of container and cloud native technologies. Our mission is to make distributed systems as easy as possible, so businesses can put their applications on center stage. Our Kubermatic Container Engine provides everything IT teams need to easily set-up, manage and operate scalable Kubernetes clusters in the cloud or on-prem.

Ever since we launched in 2016, our journey has been an exciting one. Now, our team is looking to grow with engineers that are willing to wear multiple hats and get things done: from running POCs to designing and architecting solutions, to writing code that improves Kubermatic or develop our open source and customer projects.

If you are looking for a neatly structured environment, we are just not a good match. But if you are thrilled by the prospect of joining a technology start-up with a lot of room for your own ideas and personal growth, we definitely should at least grab a drink.
