MySQL DBA – Cloud Services

Seattle, WA & Boston, MA


Do you remember the story of David and Goliath, where David was able to take down a giant? Are you interested in building the largest open source cloud to compete with Amazon Web Services? Do you want to work for a startup minded team that is financially backed but a Fortune 500 company?   Are you wondering if a true start up minded team can coexist with such a powerhouse?


The answer is a resounding yes…


This group understands the value of retaining great people in today’s candidate driven market.  They believe in giving back and strongly encourage their team to contribute to the open source community.  In fact you get paid to do so.
