Why would you love this job?

Redis is looking for an experienced software engineer with a passion for infrastructure and data to help in the development of our RedisConnect product.

  • Design and implement features using Python within RedisConnect.
  • Help in the recruiting and development of other engineers.
  • Work closely with product managers and designers to deliver a great user experience for our customers.

  • Experience with noSQL databases, such as Redis
  • Experience with Docker and Kubernetes
