Databases are the beating heart of every business in the world.

Cockroach Labs is the creator of CockroachDB, the most highly evolved cloud-native, distributed SQL database on the planet that scales fast, survives anything, and thrives anywhere. We created CockroachDB to unshackle teams from the constraints of their database. Join us on our mission to enable every developer to build world-changing applications!

About the Role

Our Enterprise Architects help customers fully utilize the technical benefits of CockroachDB. We believe that in order for an Enterprise Architect to be successful, they must understand every part of the database, including modern and legacy deployment tools and systems, both on premise and in the cloud, and produce reusable artifacts that demonstrate strengths and disseminate the information, while balancing both reactive and proactive activities.  This role is remote in the US.
