EngineYard’s evolution is interwoven with the birth and growth of Rails. For over a decade, EngineYard has been at the forefront of technical innovation, helping the Ruby and Rails community multiply - whether enabling Github to run and scale in its early days or providing thousands of app an easy mechanism for leveraging cloud services.
At EngineYard, we are working towards the next big wave of innovation - ARM processors. The computing world is undergoing a shift towards ARM processors, and EngineYard is at the forefront of bringing ARM-based solutions to the Ruby community. We at EngineYard are on a mission to make deploying and managing applications easier and faster by moving to ARM-based Graviton processors.
As a C/C++ expert who loves hands-on coding, you’ll join a team focused on making the world of open-source libraries ARM compatible. You will contribute to non-ARM compatible open source projects to make them compatible. Your efforts will enable thousands of application developers to leverage ARM-based computing for significantly better performance at a much lower cost.
Your end goal is to enable all Engine Yard customers to take advantage of the latest generation of our platform that uses Graviton processors to provide better performance at lower cost and energy consumption. You’ll do this by:
In the process, you’ll also find opportunities to improve the core Engine Yard platform and make code and infrastructure changes that result in a more resilient and performant platform.
You won’t be wasting your time in meetings or on extraneous processes. Instead, you’ll spend almost all your time engineering and writing code!
You will take on x86-compatible libraries and:
