Now Hiring

Are you the six-fingered person we’ve been looking for? Have you been known to leap racks of servers in a single bound? Do you have a fanatical passion for low-level code? Do you look good in hats?

We are headquartered near Union Square in San Francisco. We love shuffling, craft cocktails from Bourbon & Branch, coffee from SightGlass, and dressing fancy on Fridays. We wear many fine hats. We proudly sponsor several local startup events, including OpenStack® hack-a-thons every other Thursday, and we travel twice a year to the Openstack Summit.

Free Hat!

You get a top-quality hat of your choice. Bowler, pillbox, fedora — it's up to you.

Free Lunch Every Day

We get catered lunch in our office every Monday through Thursday, and we all go out on Fridays.

Chainsaw Juggling Lessons

Our co-founder and CTO Joshua McKenty will masterfully instruct you. Some employees have not been injured.

Comprehensive Health Benefits

Medical, vision, dental—we have your back. And your eyes. And your teeth. Wait, that sounds weird.

Flexible Scheduling

We understand that 9-5 isn't for everyone, so we offer floating holidays and work-from-home days.

Annual TaskRabbit Stipend

You get a chunk of TaskRabbit change to use however you'd like. We recommend delivering baby kittens to your enemies.

Quick Turnaround on Expenses

For your travel expenses, Friday lunches, and more, we'll make sure you're reimbursed in a hurry.

Lots of Awesome Activities

We go out to bars and restaurants, have beachside lobsterfests, play D&D (neerrrds), and generally get crazy whenever possible.

Commuter Benefits

By train, bus, or automobile, we want you arriving to work in comfort and style. That extra cash in your pocket doesn't hurt either.

FMLA Policy

Our comprehensive policy makes scaling your family up just as easy as scaling up your Piston OpenStack deployment. But possibly with more sleepless nights.
