Percona is hiring a Go back-end engineer

 | January 20, 2014 |  Posted In: Percona Cloud Tools, Percona Software


We’re looking for a full-time web back-end developer to join our team and help continue building the Percona Cloud Tools (https://cloud.percona.com) back end. We use the Go language, so we would love to find a Go programmer, but since Go is a very new language, we’re looking for any great programmer who wants to learn and master Go–it’s fun and easy!
We understand that Go is a new technology, so you may not have a direct experience, but if you are looking to be an expert in it together with our team, and participate in the development of new generation tools for MySQL – please submit your application!

Vadim leads Percona Labs, which focuses on technology research and performance evaluations of Percona’s and third-party products. Percona Labs designs no-gimmick tests of hardware, filesystems, storage engines, and databases that surpass the standard performance and functionality scenario benchmarks. Vadim’s expertise in LAMP performance and multi-threaded programming help optimize MySQL and InnoDB internals to take full advantage of modern hardware. Oracle Corporation and its predecessors have incorporated Vadim’s source code patches into the mainstream MySQL and InnoDB products. He also co-authored the book High Performance MySQL: Optimization, Backups, and Replication 3rd Edition.


  • Vadim,

    This position is no longer available, but any plans for future? Also, would you be interested in C++/systems programmer?

    Thank you

  • Exim,

    That’s right, Go backend position is closed, but we have
    DevOps position which is related to Go http://percona.theresumator.com/apply/TmMP45/DevOps-Engineer.html

    Sorry, We do not have any openings for C++ programmers at the moment, but we may have in future, the same for Go programmers.

  • DevOps sounds really fun and interesting, but from the job description – Ops experience is required and it is not something that is allowed to be learned on the job, so I’m afraid I won’t be a good fit (I suppose being more or less advanced Linux user [in the past] is not enough…).

    So I’ll eagerly wait for just Dev positions (Be it Go or C++).

    Thank you!
