Heptio is not your typical early-stage “work hard/play hard” startup. We value sustainable processes, flexibility, blameless retrospectives, and scrappy problem solving. Our growing team is made up of experienced professionals  with diverse backgrounds and interests who take both our careers and our personal lives seriously.
We are looking for extraordinary engineering talent to continue the mission to bring Kubernetes to enterprise developers and beyond.
What You’ll Be Doing…
Organizations are transforming their infrastructure management using Kubernetes and cloud native strategies. Heptio is developing products that make this journey easier, safer, and more enjoyable.
We are focused on building elegant user experiences which deliver insight into infrastructure behavior and operations. Kubernetes clusters generate a significant volume of data and information. Your efforts can help draw meaning from this information. Join a growing team dedicated to addressing these challenges.
You will have the opportunity to partner directly with large enterprise customers to develop products which make them successful in their work. You’ll do all of this alongside a distributed team of talented and passionate engineers, product managers, and product designers.


  • You have a real passion for building browser-based software products.
  • You are thoughtful about user experience, especially for technical users.
  • You are effective at building systems with JavaScript, HTML, CSS, Node.js, npm and JavaScript build tools.
  • You can collaborate effectively with others including peer engineers, product designers and product managers.
  • You are passionate about creating and sustaining an engaging, inclusive environment for your team.
  • It Would Be Nice If...

  • You’ve built applications on commercial cloud offerings (Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure)
  • You've worked on or with technologies that make up the new "cloud native" stack. This would include Kubernetes, Docker, Mesosphere, Go.
  • You are comfortable working at multiple parts of the application stack.
  • You have previously worked in a large enterprise setting (again, for customer empathy) yet yearn for the opportunities provided by a startup.
  • About Heptio
    Heptio empowers the technology driven enterprise to realize the full potential of Kubernetes. The company’s training, support and professional services speed integration of Kubernetes and related technologies into the fabric of enterprise IT, while its products reduce the cost and complexity of running these systems in production environments.
    Heptio was founded by 2 of the creators of the OSS Kubernetes project while at Google. Kubernetes is a "container orchestrator" that enables IT organizations to offer programmatic access to their infrastructure as well as driving efficient resource utilization. It is also a fast-growing open source community and the "seed crystal" for a groundbreaking set of technologies.
