Voltage Park is building an AI cloud infrastructure business from the ground up. As part of this effort, we’re looking for a Principal Software Engineer to build, design and implement the Voltage Park platform and tooling for our customers. You’ll play a pivotal role in building the product, and as an early hire, you’ll also have outsize influence in defining the company’s culture and ensuring mission success.

What you’ll do:

  • Lead the design and development of scalable, reliable, and secure cloud management software.

  • Select core technologies and frameworks both for technical specs, and non-technical considerations such as release velocity and hiring

  • Architect critical backend and frontend components

  • Collaborate with product managers and stakeholders to define technical requirements and deliver innovative solutions.

  • Participate in architectural discussions, design reviews, and sprint planning sessions to contribute to product roadmap and strategy.

  • Mentor engineers, providing guidance, feedback, and support to ensure project success.

  • Drive the adoption of best practices, coding standards, and quality assurance processes within the engineering team.

  • Conduct code reviews, performance optimizations, and troubleshooting to ensure the stability and performance of the product.

  • Stay updated with industry trends, emerging technologies, and competitive landscape to drive innovation and maintain a competitive edge.

  • Work closely with SREs to automate deployment processes, monitor system performance, and improve overall efficiency.


  • Experience building complex web products from 0 to 1, architecture and software engineering 

  • Expertise in languages such as Go, Rust, Python, C++ or Java.

  • Experience with architecture and design of complex, highly available, fault-tolerant, distributed systems and applications.

  • Excellent leadership and communication skills with the ability to work effectively in a collaborative team environment as a mentor, technical leader, and coach

  • Understanding of infrastructure design in a Unix/Linux environment

  • Familiarity with modern CI/CD practices and common infrastructure tools like Docker, Kubernetes, Terraform, and Ansible

  • You’re comfortable with a high degree of autonomy, prioritize your work, and understand how it maps to the overall needs and goals of the company

  • You’re knowledgeable in your domain but also enjoy wearing multiple hats and venturing outside of your comfort zone when the need arises

  • Nice to have: Experience building cloud orchestration products with Kubernetes or similar

  • Bonus: experience working with bare metal or hardware
