PolyScale is changing how databases are distributed and scaled. Our mission is to make data-driven apps faster by simplifying global caching for developers. If you are passionate about developer experiences, data performance and are a curious problem solver, join us.

We’re a small (<10), Series Seed funded and fully-remote team that’s engineering heavy. We fully embody principles of servant leadership.

  • Build highly responsive web-based systems using React, extending into usage with popular frameworks such as Gatsby.js, Next.js etc, and backend code in TypeScript for applications that make up significant components of the PolyScale PaaS offering. These include the data intensive PolyScale UI, developer API’s, website and documentation sites.
  • Embracing an engineering artisan culture, and take pride to deliver well-designed APIs and frictionless user interfaces
  • Always be focusing on performance and latency. You are data driven, know how to test and measure and you know that DOM manipulation and bytes on the wire matter.
  • Learning and contributing to the broader product and architecture. PolyScale is a real-time data distribution platform at global scale that encompasses components written in C++ and Python, as well as TypeScript. We design smart cache algorithms as well as ML/AI to make developers’ lives easier.
