Our team is built on four key values that guide us toward our mission: Make Data EasyView open positions
Commit to Excellence
We commit to providing solutions that demonstrate a singular focus on excellence. We take pride in what we do – aiming to reach high, break boundaries, and build to last – because striving to do our best work is its own reward.
We started Cockroach Labs to build an open source database with an architecture capable of transcending the limitations of existing solutions. There will always be an arms race between database capabilities and business requirements, and to remain in the vanguard, we must continue to advance the state of the art.
We believe that balanced individuals produce exceptional results. Whether you find balance through time with friends and family, a healthy lifestyle, or intellectual pursuits outside of work, taking time to establish balance makes your work more productive.
Employees self-manage and focus on something outside of their core work responsibilities, ranging from a work related project to volunteering to simply spending more time with family.
Roachers have the option to temporarily work from another city, state, or even country - the ultimate accommodation for work/life balance.
It is always nice to have everyone in the office, but good work is the higher priority. Our employees are free to arrange their work schedules to meet individual circumstances.
Be Transparent About Both Highs and Lows
Everyone deserves to know what’s going on - even when it involves failures. We trust and respect our employees, our open-source community, and our customers. We believe by being transparent, we all have the opportunity to learn from one another and grow for the benefit of everyone.
In August, we wrote about our concerted stability effort. Today, we’ve more than achieved our CockroachDB stability goal of running a 100-node cluster.
We believe that a structured interview process with exercise based problems and the removal of resumes, we create a fairer process that leads to better hiring decisions.
As we prepared for CockroachDB 1.0, we wanted independent verification that CockroachDB kept its promises. We hired Jepsen author Kyle Kingsbury to review our tests, add more of his own, and run CockroachDB through his gauntlet.
Everyone is here because they’ve spent years studying and working hard. We approach discussions with humility and an open mind to guarantee that we’ll learn something new or appreciate a problem from a new perspective. And that in turn leads to better outcomes.
You are free to arrange your work schedule to meet your individual circumstances.
We provide food throughout the Cockroach Labs work week (Mon-Thu) and grab dinner twice a month as a team at one of NYC’s outstanding restaurants.
Focus on what drives and motivates you outside of core work responsibilities. This is your day to self-manage and grow in whatever way you choose.
We provide $1500 annually to support learning and development through workshops, conferences, and networking events.
Build friendships and deepen ties with coworkers to make working together fun and productive.
We care about productivity, not face time. Take time off when you need it.
100% health insurance coverage for you & your dependents; One Medical membership; Gym discounts; free Citibike membership; 401(k).
We offer 8-12 weeks of parental leave, regardless of when you joined, plus $500 in baby bucks.
Moving to NYC can be overwhelming. We help you and your family relocate to the city we call home.
