What Temporal is looking for in applicants
We are expanding our team! You can be anywhere in the United States for all of our positions, and other various locations outside the U.S. for other roles to join us.
At Temporal, we are on a mission to remove the complexity in developing reliable software for the cloud. If you want to solve hard distributed system problems, have a passion for open source software and building a strong developer community, then come join us in our mission. Temporal enables developers to focus on writing important business logic, and not on managing state or worrying about the underlying infrastructure. The Temporal platform is being trusted by top-tier companies as a core technology in their mission critical systems. Our active open source community of developers, who are also our users, provide us with real-time feedback and contributions. We're backed by top VC firms, have closed Series B and have a team of professionals from start-ups and larger companies like Microsoft, Google, Amazon, Meta, Uber, Apple, Cisco and more.
Temporal is a product by developers, for developers. Our success so far is largely due to our already thriving and diverse community. We believe that investing in, nurturing and growing with our community will only become more important as our product and business mature.
