Software Engineer

Remote, EU

Docker is a remote first company with employees across Europe and the Americas that simplifies the loves of developers who are making world-changing apps.  We raised our Series C funding in March 2022 for $105M at a $2.1B valuation.  We saw a 4x year-over-year ARR growth last year and continue to grow!  Join us for a whale of a ride!

At Docker, we simplify the lives of developers who are making world-changing apps. Docker helps developers bring their ideas to reality by conquering the complexity of app development using container images. The Registry team develops and maintains the largest and most popular container registry service in the world today, Docker Hub. Millions of users - community developers, open-source projects, and Independent Software Vendors - push and pull Docker container images billions of times through Docker Hub.

The Registry team is a product team that is responsible for the performant search, distribution, discovery and management of Docker images and other OCI content on Docker Hub. We leverage open specifications and code to achieve this and work with partners and peers across the Cloud Native ecosystem. If you love building products with impact and are an experienced backend Software Engineer then this role is for you!
