Bringing Speed and Scale to the Enterprise

Rubrik is creating the cloud data management space. We make it easy for businesses to protect, search, secure, and analyze all of their data simply and scalably. As cloud continues to grow at an astounding rate, we’ll be solving some of it’s most interesting challenges while building a product unlike anything seen before. This is a massive challenge and we’re just getting started so there is a lot of opportunity for personal growth and contribution.

Our Software Engineers are self-starters, driven and can manage themselves. We believe in giving engineers responsibility, not tasks. Our goal is to motivate and challenge you to do your best work.

To do that, we have a very fluid structure and give people flexibility to work on projects that they enjoy most. This develops more capable engineers and keeps everyone engaged and happy. And because we plan for releases every 12 weeks and form new teams, you will have the opportunity to build some of our most critical components such as Atlas, our distributed file-system and Cerebro, the brains behind our system.

What are some cool things that our engineers are working on?

  • Atlas - our cloud-scale file system
  • Cerebro - the brains behind our system
  • Many more things that we can’t disclose publicly


  • Degree in Computer Science
  • Strong in data structures, algorithms, and software design
  • Expert knowledge developing and debugging in C++, Java, or Scala
  • Large distributed systems design and development experience is a bonus
  • Strong interest in learning new technologies
