CATALOG is creating the future of large-scale data storage using DNA. We are backed by leading venture capital firms, including NEA, OS Fund, and AME Cloud Ventures, and we are collaborating with top technology companies and government agencies. You can get a glimpse of Catalog’s story here:

The data storage industry is stagnant and ripe for disruption. Large cloud providers still use tape technology developed in the 1920s, before computers even existed. Our technology, based on research from MIT, uses the past to create the future. At CATALOG, we have developed a novel, economically-viable system that can save exabytes of data via DNA. Our mission is to create and deploy the most reliable, cost-effective, and space-efficient storage medium the world has ever seen.

We are looking for the world’s best engineers and developers to join us on our historic journey.

Why join us?

  • We have novel methods for storing data in DNA that are economically viable and several orders of magnitude cheaper than anyone else in the space.

  • We are in talks with household-name cloud providers, government agencies, film studios, scientific organizations, and banks.

  • We are led by MIT- and Harvard-trained scientists.

Engineering at CATALOG

Engineering team and processes

We use Asana to plan tasks, reviewing what has been completed and what we expect to complete every week. We use pull requests, do code reviews, employ automated testing, and deploy to various environments.

Technical Challenges

We are building a system that will need to handle exabyte-scale data (and larger) relaibly. We are building a system for organizing this data, and have to consider the benefits and constraints of our storage medium (DNA).

Projects you might work on
  • You would be building out an indexing and organization system, working with leading researchers in the field.

  • You would be building out our hardware coordinators.

  • You would be building out our encoder and decoder.

  • You would be building out our large-scale, fault-tolerant ingest pipeline.

Tech stack

Working at CATALOG

As an early member of the engineering team, you should be self-motivated and thrive in an environment with minimal structure. Ideally, you have worked at very early stage startups in the past and naturally take initiative in solving problems wherever you see them, while communicating readily with the rest of the team. We value diversity highly, as we believe it leads to better solutions more quickly, and seek candidates who will help build that into a robust development culture.

Perks & benefits
  • Generous Vacation

    We have unlimited PTO with explicit time off (e.g. 2 weeks off for the winter holidays).

  • Travel

    We have our main office in Boston, and travel there will be encouraged a few times a year.

  • Flexible Hours
  • Work from Home
  • Health Insurance

    We provide full medical, dental, and vision coverage.

  • Workshops/Conferences
  • Other

    We are still at the ground stages, so you can help influence our choice of perks (and SF office!).

  • Beautiful Office
  • Free Food
