Golang Job Details

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 empower developers to make world-changing apps. Docker helps developers bring their ideas to reality by conquering the complexity of app development using container images. The Supply Chain team is looking to solve the following problems:

  • What insights can we give developers about their images and build processes?

  • How can developers keep their software dependencies up to date and secure?

  • What data can we put at developers' fingertips to supercharge their daily work?

  • How can developers build on expertise and pre-existing solutions within their organization?

To solve these problems, the Supply Chain team experiments on and delivers various features using data, iterating quickly on prototypes inside Docker Desktop, Docker Hub, and a new cross-registry initiative. We’re centered around a large data plane with integrations to container registries and source control systems. We use this data to provide developers with insights and new functionality.

Who we’re looking for

We have a variety of backend opportunities at different parts of the stack, including infrastructure and platform engineering, integrations with other web services, and customer-facing applications on both web and desktop, and we welcome applicants who are interested in any of these areas. We use various languages, but particularly Golang.

We work in a multi-cloud environment, making use of the best parts of GCP and AWS. We use a variety of databases including Datomic, Postgres and DynamoDB. Much of the backend is asynchronous and queues are center stage in our architecture. We use Kubernetes to run our services and serverless technology where appropriate. Our services build automatically and are deployed into production with a click of a button. We believe in making small changes and deploying regularly.

The ideal candidate will have a strong desire to investigate and learn new technologies. In return, we offer you the unique opportunity to build world-class tools to help millions of developers like you.


  • 5+ years experience in backend engineering.

  • Proficiency in modern programming languages.

  • Comfortable following software engineering best practices such as code review, source control, continuous integration, and testing.

  • Comfortable with a high degree of autonomy (self-motivated, organized) and the ability to work remotely across time zones.

  • Eager to work with and learn new tools and technologies.

  • Able to communicate concepts clearly and be understood by non-technical peers.
