We’re seeking a senior Python back-end and system engineers to build SaaS and CLI tools. We build DVC (7000+ ⭐on GitHub) and CML (2000+ ⭐ on GitHub). It's a great opportunity if you love open source, dev tools, systems programming, and remote work. Join our well-funded remote-first team to build developer tools to see how your code is used by thousands of developers every day!


  • Excellent communication skills and a positive mindset 🤗
  • No prior deep knowledge of ML is required - Strong Python knowledge and excellent coding culture (standards, unit test, docs, etc) are required.
  • Initiative to help shape the engineering practices, products, and culture of a young startup - Remote work self-discipline. A lot of our processes are built on trust- we don't like and don't have time to micro-manage

About the interview process

We’ll likely start with an informal 45-minute phone call to meet. After that, we’d love to work on a process together that feels fair. No trick/puzzle questions, no artificial “whiteboard” problems. Usually we plan to do something together - a task that is actually motivated by the problems we deal every day with. It can be for example a ticket from GitHub. You will meet and potentially work with the team. Of course, we’d pay you whatever you think is fair. We understand, however, that’s not always possible for everyone and we are open-minded and can discuss other options!

We're a well-funded, remote-first team on a mission to solve the complexity of managing datasets, ML infrastructure, ML models lifecycle management. We value great collaboration and communication skills, both among internal teams and in how we interact with our users.
