Company Description

Do you remember what the Cloud was meant to be? Have you always thought: there’s a better way to do this? At Seaplane, we’re doing it! We believe in eliminating cloud waste, scaling globally, and having our users spend only on the compute they need, where and when they need it. So we built a control plane that takes users further using a serverless edge computing platform. Already we have points of presence in tens of countries around the world, and we’re growing fast. 

Started in Silicon Valley and backed by Sequoia Capital, we think globally from day one. We're a 100% remote company, committed to growing an inclusive team with the most talented people everywhere. All our roles are remote and available at all experience levels.  If you are passionate about building and operating the next generation of global cloud systems, come work with us!

We value creativity, versatility, curiosity, and enthusiasm above specific knowledge in specific tools. Our culture is one of mutual respect and support, where we actively foster each other's professional growth. We move fast, work hard, laugh a lot, and fearlessly Figure Things Out.

We're hiring with time zone diversity in mind for uninterrupted service so teams can confidently hand off responsibilities as the sun moves.

We welcome applications without regard to race, color, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, national origin, age, disability, marital status, or taste in music.
