Replicated is the modern way to ship and monitor multi-prem software. Replicated helps software vendors quickly and securely deploy their applications to any customer using a single architecture. The Replicated platform provides all of the tools needed to operationalize and scale the distribution of Kubernetes applications into any enterprise environment.

Our customers include HashiCorp, Puppet, SmartBear, Jama, Swimlane, Tripwire, Acrolinx, and Knime and many other fast-growing enterprise software vendors. We're a Series C funded company (over $80m raised) with long term investors and a long term focus.

Replicated is committed to cultivating an efficient, respectful workplace. We know that innovation thrives on teams where diverse points of view come together to solve hard problems in ways that are just now possible. As such, we explicitly seek people that bring diverse life experiences, diverse educational backgrounds, diverse cultures, and diverse work experiences.

We are fully remote and plan to stay that way! We're open to any state in the US. In addition, for some roles, we're open to candidates in Canada, the UK, Australia, and New Zealand.

Are you an engineer with deep experience deploying applications to Kubernetes? AND Do you love working with customers?

We're looking for someone like you to join our Solutions Engineering team.

As a Solutions Engineer, you'll guide your prospects and customers on their Replicated Platform journey, helping them at every stage from first Zoom call to wild success. We sell to software vendors. Our buyers are developers, platform teams, product engineers, and CTOs with strong opinions. Each is unique, but all aim to deliver best-in-class software to customer environments.

You'll demonstrate the platform, lead customer evaluations, and answer deep technical questions. You'll get hands on with vendor teams to show the value of the Replicated Platform.

As a Solutions Engineer, you’ll collaborate extensively across the organization. Each day you will work with Account Executives, Product Managers, and Developers. Through your continuous conversations with our customers (vendors), combined with a deep knowledge of our ecosystem and products, you’ll influence product direction and set customers up for long-term success, becoming a trusted advisor for your vendors throughout their Replicated journey.
