Distributed Systems Engineer-OS Team

Job description

At Hadean we are changing the nature of computing. Our mission is to enable and empower the world to effortlessly harness the limitless computing power of the cloud to realise the greatest opportunities of today and tomorrow, to make the world a better place. So far in 2019 we’ve raised $10m to accelerate our growth.

We believe that anything is possible when you think big enough, so we give our team the platform to turn great ideas into great products. We are a deep tech company pushing the boundaries every day. OOur Engineering team are rewriting the rulebook on OS design to create HadeanOS. It is distributed-first, robust to scaling, efficient, compact and fast. On this foundation we are building Aether Engine, a simulation framework capable of tackling the vast complexity of tomorrow’s gaming, life science and physical simulation challenges.

As our new Distributed Systems Engineer you will be key to our growth by:

  • Using performance and profiling tools to identify and fix hotspots, bottlenecks, and any possible areas for improvements by fixing the code or re-configuring the system.

  • Become the Owner of Performance on the team and champion a performance mindful approach in design discussions, code reviews and engineering culture in general.

  • Participating in the ideation phase of planning, providing your unique perspective on the prioritization, design, and implementation of engineering work.


What we’re looking for:

  • You are familiar with the techniques used in decentralized/distributed systems to achieve Reliability, Availability and Consistency.
  • You have extensive optimisation and scaling experience in ‘systems’ languages (C, C++, Rust, Assembly).
  • Spent time developing libraries for HPC environments, understanding the low level limitations and bottlenecks that guide your design to achieve optimal performance
  • You can provide concrete evidence of situations in the past where you've made cross-cutting performance changes in a larger system.
  • You have an evidence-based approach to performance. Speculative or premature optimization hold no interest for you.
  • You have experience in estimating performance characteristics and analysing designs for potential performance problems.
  • You are energised by a dynamic, fast-paced and agile workplace

Nice but not necessary:

  • Experience with or affinity for the Rust programming language.
  • Experience working with “industry standard” benchmarks (e.g., SPEC, TPC)
  • Experience writing distributed system analysis tools

How we work is as important as what we work on. Our values include respect, growth, innovation, boldness, fearlessness, resilience, benevolence, authenticity, trustworthiness, being curious, teamwork and fun.

Diversity makes us stronger and more able to make the impossible possible. We are therefore committed to Equal Employment Opportunities throughout our recruiting and hiring process, and welcome applications from anyone and everyone.

We make Hadean an awesome place to work with options for new employees, regular team drinks, dinners and events, training budget, choice of Perkbox or Classpass discount, off peak start time, pension scheme and eye exams, and a whole load of fruit and coffee in our fantastic office.
