Amazing Golang Engineer? Come join our tribe!

We’re looking for engineers that want to build something great with a group of incredible people. We’re a small (but growing) group of smart and talented engineers, who are passionate about distributed systems, operating systems, and clean architecture.

We’ve found that working with other like minded, smart engineers is a great benefit – it feels great to be part of a high-performing team.

If you are smart, have 4 years of Golang, know your way around Kubernetes, or the Linux kernel, and are interested in changing the world of distributed systems, we’d like to hear from you.

Don’t have all that experience? Fret not! We are always building new things that haven’t been done before, so we’re most interested in good developers  that enjoy learning, are curious, driven and want to master new things. If that sounds like you, apply!

Talos is a fast moving startup, that is scaling our engineering team as our customers scale. You’ll have the opportunity to work on all sorts of things – network booting, operating system architecture, secure software life cycle, encryption and key management, – lots of good juicy stuff.

As part of a small, all remote team, you’ll be highly autonomous, but have a big impact. We value results, not time spent at your screen – you get to manage that yourself, and work however, wherever and whenever you want.

Depending on your inclination, as well as code and architect, we will probably ask that you blog about your work, and attend online meetings with prospects and customers to hear their problems directly (so that you can help design solutions with first hand knowledge.)

We pay competitive salaries, and, depending on your location, grant stock options or stock appreciation rights. But you may find that the biggest benefit is the people you’ll get to work with, as well as the culture of responsibility and results. 

Please email a resumé to and we will be in touch!
