At Databricks, we are obsessed with enabling data teams to solve the world’s toughest problems, from security threat detection to cancer drug development.

We do this by building and running the world’s best data and AI infrastructure platform, so our customers can focus on the high value challenges that are central to their own missions.

Founded in 2013 by the original creators of Apache Spark, Databricks has grown from a tiny corner office in Berkeley, California to a global organization with over 1000 employees.

Thousands of organizations, from small to Fortune 100, trust Databricks with their mission-critical workloads, making us one of the fastest growing SaaS companies in the world.

On the engineering side, we are well known for attracting the best engineers in Silicon Valley. Our teams build highly technical products that fulfill real, important needs in the world.

We are constantly pushing the boundaries of technologies, but at the same time we won’t shy away from the grunt work that is critical in making sure our customers are successful on our platform.

We develop and operate one of the largest scale software platforms. The fleet consists of millions of virtual machines, generating terabytes of logs and processing exabytes of data per day.

At our scale, we regularly observe cloud hardware, network, and operating system faults, and our software must gracefully shield our customers from any of the above.

To continue scaling the business, we are establishing a major engineering center in Toronto. As a first step, we are looking for engineers to form the Toronto founding team.
