About Us

Abdul, Iñaki, Jacob, Javier, Melissa, Nacho , Pablo, Ramiro, and Ramon work at Okteto. We all believe that by building the next generation of dev tools, we can unleash teams’ innovation and creativity everywhere. We are a seed-stage startup backed by YCombinator, Root Ventures, Haystack, Uncorrelated Ventures, and other founders and industry leaders.

We are a remote company, and we work from all over the world. For this position, in particular, we are looking for someone based in Europe, preferably Spain (that's where most of our engineering team lives).

Why you should join Okteto

At Okteto, we are working hard at creating the next-generation development experience for teams of all sizes. Have you ever seen how long it takes a developer to set up everything they need before working on a feature? We are fixing that. We want developers to focus on building value for their teams instead of wasting time setting up local environments or trying to debug "production only" issues.
