How you'll contribute

  • Maintain and improve the integrity of our data processing pipeline (5Tb per day)
  • Develop tools to guarantee the availability of our services (~30 microservices) and automate their operation
  • Contribute to the development of back-end services and product features

What you'll need to succeed

  • 8+ years of software engineering experience
  • 5+ years of experience as a backend/SRE
  • Language polyglot, advanced experience with at least 2 out of C# (.NET core), Python, NodeJS+TypeScript
  • Experience with distributed systems

Why you’ll love Eight

  • We’re a tight-knit, passionate team that’s working to improve people’s lives by improving the way they sleep

At Eight Sleep we continually celebrate the diverse community different individuals cultivate. As an equal opportunity employer, we stay true to our values by ensuring everyone feels they can flourish and grow. We are committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, gender identity or Veteran status.

About Eight

Our mission is to fuel human potential through better sleep. We’re the first sleep fitness company, a NYC based startup backed with $67M by Founders Fund, Khosla Ventures, YCombinator, and more. We were named one of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies of 2018.

We've just launched our temperature-regulated smart bed, the Pod. It's an absolute game changer, improving people's health and happiness by changing the way they sleep. The Pod is the first mattress to automate the sleep cycle based on users' settings for desired temperatures throughout the night, biometric sensor-driven detection of the users' behavior and sleep stage, and proprietary logic.

We value the ability to make a lot of things happen with the fewest amount of resources possible. No conclusions without data. Work for each other.
