About the role

About Replit
We're focusing on: building the world's most ubiquitous programming environment; inspiring creativity and generating value for creators through community; and designing simple yet scalable infrastructure primitives for the next generation of creators. We want to blur the line between learning and making– a place where you can hang out, tinker with ideas, learn new concepts, and launch a business all in the same day.

About the role

The platform team gives every Replit user a free computer in the cloud so they can learn and build. Your charter will be to give users more power in the cloud, make the system run faster across the globe, and save Replit a whole bunch of money along the way.

Examples of what you could do

You will…

  • Distribute our compute globally to better serve the next billion software creators.

  • Remove limitations of our filesystem so users can have all the storage they need.

  • Build out new platform products so our users can build sophisticated applications.

  • Save Replit money and power the business through clever cost optimizations.

  • Develop Replt’s infrastructure using Go, Rust, GCP, and IaC tools like Terraform.

You are…

  • Someone who values simplicity and pragmatism (you think radically but ship incrementally).

  • Self-directed and comfortable working autonomously.

  • Experienced in distributed systems and containerization

_ Bonus Points _

  • You have experience with the Nix ecosystem

  • You like to play with Linux filesystems for fun

  • You have optimized large scale distributed systems for performance and cost

  • You have managed a public-facing project (you have launched projects with real users)

Why you should join Replit

We're building a first of its kind developer platform that can be used to learn and practice programming, build and deploy applications, and share and discuss with a community of peers. We realize this is an ambitious plan, but we think it's high time someone built this. There is no good reason for the insane fragmentation in programming tools today -- someone learning to code needs to learn at least ten disjointed tools and platforms to do anything interesting with programming.
