Job Posting

Ocient is a venture-funded startup building a SQL compliant, exabyte-scale, high-performance data platform. It is a distributed system optimized for NVMe drives, RDMA networks and high core count processors. We are led by a management team with seven successful startup exits, including Cleversafe which was one of the largest software startup exits in Chicago's history.


Job Overview:
Ocient is looking for experienced Software Engineers to join the Solutions Engineering team. Solutions Engineering is a software development team focused on Ocient’s Loading and Transformation platform, streaming systems, connectors, and other custom capabilities. The team works closely with end customers and the rest of the Ocient engineering teams to deliver massive-scale data solutions. Ideal candidates are passionate about large-scale systems engineering, high-performance distributed systems, and ensuring customer success.


  • Design, implement, and validate batch and stream loading systems to ingest terabytes of data per day.

  • Collaborate across engineering teams and customer engagements to deliver world-class massive-scale data solutions.

  • Program in Java, C++, Python, and Go to build and monitor distributed software systems.

  • Work with cutting-edge open-source software and constantly evaluate the next generation of big data software.

  • Work closely with Sales, Product, and End Customers to ensure business success.



  • 1-3 years of relevant industry experience.

  • Strong fundamental computer science skills.

  • A good working knowledge of Linux, containers, networking, and databases.

  • The ability to own, communicate, and manage risk associated with large complex problems.


An ideal candidate will have:

  • A “polyglot” skill set with a demonstrated ability and desire to work across different domains and problems.

  • Experience delivering end-to-end customer facing systems.

  • Experience developing high performance distributed systems in C++, Java, or Go.

  • Expertise in ETL workflows and stream processing with an established framework (e.g. Apache Flink, Kafka Streams).

  • Knowledge of container orchestration systems and cloud-native software development.

  • Desire to work in a fast paced, startup environment with a highly collaborative team.

  • Strong sense of urgency and commitment to customer success.

You are not required to have experience in each of these areas. Ocient cares more about general engineering skill and passion for large-scale distributed systems.
