Opsani AI measures, predicts and implements changes to parameters and resource settings across the VM instance, middleware, application and containers to maximize performance and reduce costs autonomously when you deploy new code, evaluate new instance types, and experience changes in user patterns.
Why join us?
Have more impact than you ever imagined and reap the rewards of that with our stock option plan which all employees participate in. Work hand-in-hand with some of the best in the industry. Our founders and investors have a proven track record of how to deliver disruptive technology and scale a high-growth company. Join us and you’ll do the best work of your life — and make a difference in other people’s lives.
We believe in work-life balance. We all need time to recharge, take care of personal things, spend time with friends and family or just some downtime. Take a vacation or flex your workday to meet your personal and business needs — everyone has differences in what helps them be at their best.
Many of our benefits are aimed at supporting you and your loved ones through life’s various stages — we offer parental leave and understand that sometimes you just can’t miss that dance recital.
We have access to excellent healthcare choices and believe in healthy habits, like taking a walk with a team member when you need to inspire some creative thought. Numerous days during the week, we have team lunches at the local restaurant row just a short stroll from the office. The conversations bounce between solving the next feature needed for our customers and who is going to win the ping-pong tournament.
Engineering at Opsani
As a small engineering team we have a flat structure, with all team members reporting to the VP of Engineering. Frequently, we form per-project teams of 2 or 3 people to implement a specific feature or component. As the team grows, we will form functional area teams, providing opportunity for rotation and for team members to grow into leadership roles. We follow Agile development principles, with a process that evolves as the team grows. We use github/gitlab and CI/CD; we do cross-reviews and provide many mentoring opportunities. Even the most junior developer writes code that goes in the product, starting from day one. We use, develop and contribute to open source projects.
There are always interesting challenges in the life of a startup that keep us innovating. Some of the technical ones we deal with every day include:
- working with
small data in AI: while most traditional AI solutions require many millions of samples for training, our solution is able to optimize new applications in a very short timeframe
- creating a closed-loop control system that uses complicated, noisy performance data that in prior technologies required human analysis to operate an autonomous system that runs 24x7
- connecting our product and service to a wide variety of cloud technology stacks used by our customers with minimum effort; creating a vibrant open source community around our plugins
You will build innovative machine learning algorithms that learn application behavior and provide autonomous optimization in a small number of steps... and continue to learn and improve as new data becomes available. Our AI not only analyses—it makes changes in running, live systems.
You will build a multi-tenant SaaS service that operates 24x7, scales to millions of users and is responsive to events coming from human users and a variety of machine sources, including CI/CD and other DevOps systems, as well as cloud orchestration and monitoring systems. The service provides autonomous continuous optimization for high volume cloud applications.
You will build Open Source plugins that connect our AI product to a variety to leading-edge cloud technologies, such as Kubernetes, OpenShift, Docker, AWS, Azure, and GCP, as well as a set of classic and emerging monitoring and application performance management systems like Prometheus, Splunk, SignalFx, Datadog, NewRelic, and AppDynamics.
Working at Opsani
We value teamwork and collaboration because we believe it helps us create the best product we can. We work really hard, but also understand everyone needs a little fun each day to clear their mind and spark creativity.
We go out to lunch as a team to the local restaurants a couple of times a week.
We have two dogs that occasionally come into the office and we are open to having pets here a few days a week.
Earlier this month, the team went on a retreat to a private lake near Auburn, CA. We rented a house on the lake and enjoyed water sports, team bonding, and some fun outdoors.
We allow 12 weeks unpaid leave, as well as an optional 6 weeks, paid to work from home following the initial 12 weeks.
We value a work-life balance and allow for flexible hours throughout the week.
We cover 75% of vision, medical, and dental insurance.
Lunch a couple of times a week, coffee breaks, and ping-pong tournaments in the office.
We are located by downtown Redwood City, allowing us access to amazing restaurants, coffee shops, and stores. Our office is close to the freeway, so it is a great location for commuting. We just moved into a new office space and are redesigning.
