Join SuperOrbital

Become one of the first employees at a 100% remote company focused on helping others with Kubernetes and DevOps technologies! Read below to learn about what we're looking for and how to apply.

Our Values

While these values stem from moral roots, we also just believe they're the right way to run a business. Working in an environment of professionalism, respect, and emotional safety allows us to produce our best work, and builds a culture that enriches everyone's lives.

Do What Works.

Our clients look to us to help them understand the myriad and constantly changing landscape of cloud-native tools. It's important to us that they succeed. This means focusing on the actual problems they face and leading them toward the simplest solutions possible. This is what we mean by "Do What Works."

Do The Right Thing.

We continually try to take the path that does right by our people and our clients, no matter how hard that can be. We believe that how you treat others inevitably comes back to you, so we try to keep our karma well groomed.

Be Kind.

We're a business, not a brogrammer startup. We don't accept death marches, political backstabbing, or a "take-it-for-the-team" mentality. Instead, we believe in an environment of professionalism and respect.

The Day to Day

As a training and consulting company, there's almost never such a thing as a normal day.

When on an engineering engagement, you could be wrangling Terraform configurations, spinning up Kubernetes clusters, managing Cloud Foundry with BOSH, writing custom controllers in Go, or APIs in Python – it all depends on what the client needs.

If the reward of helping students learn new technologies excites you, then there’s an opportunity for you to help with on-site delivery of our courses.

And between engagements, we spend our time implementing open source tooling, writing about our experiences in our journal, or researching the latest technologies for our workshops.

Why You'll Love Working With Us

We strive to offer a structure that matches our values.

A Truly Remote-First Team.

Not "some remote employees", not "many remote offices", but a truly 100% remote-first culture. It's not always easy, but being fully remote gives our people a healthier work/life balance, allows us to create a more diverse team, and helps us attract the best people we can find.

A Deep Belief in Sustainable Pace.

People can't perform when they're overworked. Your brain needs time off to allow it to flourish when it's back on.

We believe in marathons, not sprints.

Benefits that You Can Count On.

To do good work, we have to feel we and our loved ones are safe. We provide that foundation for you. We provide medical, dental & vision insurance, and retirement plans.

Skills & Experience

The sad truth is that many people are scared off from applying because they don't understand their own worth. If you're unsure of whether you have the skills we're looking for, please apply anyway. We promise you'll enjoy the conversation no matter what.

At the very least, you:
  • Are deeply experienced in the UNIX/Linux world
  • Have a strong understanding of DevOps and Agile philosophies and practices
  • Are excited to learn new technologies
  • …but have a healthy skepticism for the "latest shiny"
Bonus points if you:
  • Have managed Kubernetes “in anger”
  • Have worked in a pair programming environment
  • Are comfortable speaking in front of audiences
  • Have mentored others in a professional setting
  • Can make us laugh

We haven't mentioned education, and that's no accident. While we respect the perseverance and dedication it takes to get your higher degree, we also recognize that many smart and hard working people opt to go straight into the industry. We don't judge anyone for either path.

We’d love to hire people from around the world, but because some of our main clients are part of the US Government, we do require full citizenship for this role. If that’s not you, feel free to reach out anyway, just to say hi! 👋

Make an Impact

As our second employee, you'll have a unique opportunity to help shape SuperOrbital into something truly special. Help us build a company that lives up to our values and acts as an example of what a culture built on respect can achieve.

Applying Is Simple

No long forms or janky resume uploading. Just email, letting us know who you are, what excites you about working with us, and what you bring to the table. This is your one great chance to brag - enjoy it! Oh, and remember those bonus points for making us laugh 😉
