Software Engineer - Backend

Rubrik, Palo Alto, CA

Bringing Speed and Scale to the Enterprise


You will be part of a dynamic team working on some of the most challenging problems in building large-scale systems. This team is laying the foundation of Rubrik’s first SaaS-only service - leveraging huge amounts of data to glean insights and surface them to our Enterprise users. The team focuses on two core products - Sonar, a Data Governance product and Radar, a Ransomware detection product. 


You will be building systems that can reliably handle petabytes of data while still providing a high uptime. There are opportunities to work on the core backend systems and/or build Machine Learning models for some of our classification systems, a perfect match if you want to learn one of those areas while you hold expertise in another.


In your day-to-day work, you will leverage your past experience in developing large software systems to design, develop, test, deploy, maintain, and improve Rubrik’s products. You will manage individual projects, priorities, deadlines, and deliverables with your technical expertise.  All of engineers work to identify and solve bottlenecks within our software stack
