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.

We are looking for a Senior Software Engineer to join our team! Our Engineers contribute to every stage of building the Replicated delivery and management platform. They implement, test, and deploy new enhancements and updates to our products.

As a member of the development team you will get to use cutting-edge technologies and emerging open source tools and standards. Working with exciting tools like Kubernetes and Helm, you’ll help us continue to build the next generation of multi-premise features for ISVs and Enterprise customers.
