We are looking for…

  • When Chicken Little exclaims, “The sky is falling!”, you are skeptical and are pretty sure you can fix it. You like and want to fix it. You are cool-headed, easygoing and solution-oriented.
  • If you don’t really get the “sky is falling” reference (even though versions of this story probably exist across cultures), it’s totally okay. Varnish Software is international – despite our relatively small size, we’re made up of a whole flock of different nationalities. We are all over the world, and our products are, too.
  • Varnish Cache, our open source HTTP accelerator, is used by more than 3.4 million websites and by 14% of the top ten thousand websites in the world. We’ve built our Varnish products with Varnish Cache at their core.
  • Varnish Software is a laid-back place to work. But make no mistake: we do take very seriously the work of creating and sharing our software – and have fun doing it. We value flexibility, independence, and trust.
  • We value smarts and ideas. We do not love cliches. We are not going to write that we want “rockstars” and “superheroes”. We will write that we want natural curiosity and love for tech that will help us build and share software that is the rockstar superhero.
