At Databricks, we are passionate about helping data teams solve the world's toughest problems — from making the next mode of transportation a reality to accelerating the development of medical breakthroughs. We do this by building and running the world's best data and AI infrastructure platform so our customers can use deep data insights to improve their business. Founded by engineers — and customer obsessed — we leap at every opportunity to solve technical challenges, from designing next-gen UI/UX for interfacing with data to scaling our services and infrastructure across millions of virtual machines. And we're only getting started.

If you are looking for an unparalleled opportunity to build the next generation big data processing platform, and learn how to launch hundreds of thousands of VMs a day at scale while running thousands of Kubernetes clusters, you have come to the right place. The platform team builds and manages the core systems powering Databricks, allowing it to seamlessly scale and run across various geographic regions/clouds, and making Databricks the go-to product for big data processing in the cloud.

We develop and manage some of the largest scale software systems on the planet. The teams are at the forefront of the Cloud revolution, building highly scalable multi cloud infrastructure and distributed systems to launch millions of virtual machines a day, generating terabytes of logs and processing exabytes of data every single day.
