Senior Backend Engineer

CloudZero is on a mission to make cloud costs a first-class operational metric to companies building cloud products.  We believe success in this mission necessitates aligning the data that IT Finance, Development and Operations use to understand their infrastructure and the economic tradeoffs inherent when building and running cloud products.  Our cutting-edge serverless platform allows us to deeply understand the customer’s environment and predict future cost trends to empower our customers to make better economic decisions when building products.  

We are looking for people with a passion for building cloud-native architectures that are scalable and maintainable to help develop new features on our platform. We’re looking for people who are comfortable leveraging cloud serverless services when building solutions so that you can focus on customer value and people who are passionate about learning new things.  

A core part of our engineering culture is inclusiveness, we believe great teams are made up of people from diverse backgrounds and walks of life. We’re also remote worker friendly.


You will:

  • Design, build and maintain APIs, services and systems across our main application. 
  • Collaborate with other engineers to build out new customer features.
  • Help improve our engineering processes to ensure we have a group that can move fast and give everyone agency, ownership and the ability to impact the success of the company.
  • Mentor other engineers and help review changes to push collective ownership of new features.

You might be a great fit if you:

  • Enjoy and have experience building APIs and complex backend systems in the cloud.
  • Have a passion for building and delivering high quality software.  Our backend code is in Python, however we believe languages can be learned while fundamental engineering skills are transferable across many domains.
  • Write code that is understandable, testable and care about maintainability. 
  • Thrive in a collaborative environment that values working together to solve hard problems.
  • Enjoy creating solutions that have a noticeable impact to the end user, we believe our platform will help other builders out there make better solutions when working in the cloud.
