Position at Smarsh

Why Smarsh?

If you are passionate about working with vast amounts of data, obsess over performance and the quality of code, and have a desire grow professionally while having a significant impact on a business, then Smarsh is the right company for you. Our Professional Archive product is constantly growing, and with that growth, we are rapidly expanding our teams to increase our rate of innovation and ensure an excellent customer experience. This product ingests data from our customers 24/7, and working here, you will have exposure to dealing with over 20PBs of raw data, database tables and Solr indexes with 10s of billions of records, and an ingestion pipeline for data that is able to process thousands of communications per second.

The right engineer for Smarsh is someone who views their code as more than simply completing a story and pushing up a unit of work; we are looking for engineers that are passionate about their craft. We foster a culture of learning, collaboration, and knowledge sharing and look for engineers who want to be part of a team where they can learn and grow while also investing in others’ development. We have exciting engineering roles across teams for people who either want to do a mix of everything or for engineers who would rather specialize in areas like legacy code refactoring, performance optimization, cloud native integration, etc.

If you have ever dreamed of making an enormous impact through your contributions or aspired to take on additional responsibilities and grow professionally, then Smarsh would love to have you join us. We are large enough to have the benefits of a big company but small enough that every engineer matters to us.
