Careers

ShapeBlue are the worlds leading independent integrator of Apache CloudStack. We design, build, integrate and support IaaS environments for service provider and enterprise customers. The company has offices in London, Mountain View, Rio De Janeiro, Cape Town and Bangalore with plans to launch in one more territory in the next two months.

We operate global Consulting, Implementation, Support and Software Engineering teams. We expect our people to bring a wide range of deep technical experience but at the core of everything we do is Apache CloudStack. We activity encourage our people to participate in the Apache CloudStack community as much as possible.

We have an ethos of continuous personal development and encourage our people to learn & explore their technology space. ShapeBlue is a relaxed, yet highly motivating, place to work. We are a rapidly growing, yet still small, business and can therefore offer rapid career opportunities to the right people as our company scales.

Our Software Engineers work at the intersection of cloud computing, DevOps, and distributed systems. ShapeBlue is “The CloudStack company” and we actively contribute to the enhancement and maintenance of the Apache CloudStack Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) project.

Our work involves deep knowledge of hypervisors, storage, and/or networking. We are a polyglot environment – developing CloudStack in Java and Python whilst working with many different technologies for integration. We then donate all of our work back to the opensource project.

Our team values collaboration, customer focus, continuous improvement, and the Apache Way. We will provide you training and mentoring but fully expect you to have a passion for learning new technologies and to work on a collaborative basis. We will expect you to work toward becoming an Apache committer within 6 months and to want to share your work and ideas through conference presentations and hackathons.
