Rust Job Details

If this role is interesting to you but you don't think you meet all the criteria, please still apply. Nobody checks every box, and we're looking for people who are excited about Postgres and want to be a part of a growing startup.

CoreDB is a commercial open-source (COSS) company based on the popular database, Postgres. CoreDB aims to dramatically improve the developer experience of deploying, managing, and scaling Postgres. We are building a modern, rich Postgres platform with great dev experience, observability, and extendability

We’re all-in on Postgres and we're looking for talented and opinionated engineers to join our small, early-stage team.


  • Contribute to projects like the CoreDB control plane, data plane/operator, pgUI backend and pgmq
  • Build out CI/CD for CoreDB projects
  • Integrate backend systems with identity providers (e.g. Okta / OAuth)
  • Build features into our Kubernetes operator in Rust, building our ever-expanding capabilities for managing Postgres
  • Work on a wide variety of backend and infrastructure engineering challenges

About you

  • Demonstrated ability to work independently and manage your time effectively, asking for clarity when you need it and creating your own clarity when necessary
  • Significant experience with one or more of the following: Go, Ruby, Python
  • Intermediate experience with Docker and container-based application development (Kubernetes experience is a huge plus)
  • Experience with Rust (or a strong desire to learn)
  • Familiarity or exposure to Postgres is a plus (but not a requirement)

Role Details

  • Compensation & Benefits: Annual salary of $125,000 to $175,000, equity in the company, unlimited PTO, and insurance (medical, dental, and vision are 100% covered for employees)
  • Location: Remote (we meet in-person quarterly)
