Our mission at Sookasa is to liberate employees to freely use their favorite consumer services at work, by enabling the enterprise to adopt popular cloud services. We are looking for talented hackers with a strong sense of ownership, urgency and drive, to join us at this very early stage on our quest to revolutionize the workplace. You will be working with a small experienced team in an exciting, fast-paced environment leading the charge towards the consumerization of IT. We are working with large beta customers, including household brand names.
Sookasa is an early stage start-up, founded by an experienced team (serial entrepreneur who sold a company to Cisco, Stanford PhD and ex-Cisco Director), and funded by top VCs including Andreessen Horowitz, First Round Capital, SV Angels, Lerer Ventures and others.
We are building a complex distributed system that will have to store, aggregate and analyze data from multiple services and devices. The system will involve a wide set of technical challenges, from data visualization, data analytics, distributed storage, file systems, databases, networking and more.
Since we're a small team and are just starting to build the product, the ideal candidate is a passionate and smart individual who is looking for the excitement and responsibility of building a new product category in an emerging market. We are looking for back end engineers who can take complete ownership over large parts of the Sookasa server, and quickly iterate while working closely with our beta customers.
