They have scaled the data platform at Facebook from 30M to 1.4B users.


Why this could be best job opportunity in India today?

Below is opinion from eLitmus 

  • Great work content
    • Distributed SQL databases designed for scale and resilience is a problem that researchers have started attacking only in the last few years (so you will working on a problem which is the hottest area in R&D and still evolving).
    • This technology is next generation to No SQL databases like Mongo DB
  • Great colleagues
    • Techies who played a key role in building & scaling Cassandra & HBase for applications like Facebook Messenger and Facebook’s Operational Data Store are now at Yugabyte
    • The company will hire very few but highly talented folks in their R&D center in India – a completely flat organization with no politics and no bureaucracy whatsoever
  • Great leadership
    • Founders like those of Google are still hands-on and have built game-changing technology in their previous organizations
  • Stocks windfall
    • Listed companies offer RSU where multiplier is not as much
    • This is a sizeable company (so no fear of overnight failure) that is pre-IPO, so offers ESOPs where upside multiplier is huge. So actual CTC could dwarf the CTC indicated above
    • Anything related to data is the darling of stock markets right now (for example Snowflake, Databricks)
    • ₹ 47,00,000 and above | CTC could be more if Stock upside ends up being higher than assumed


  • 2017/18/19/20/21 batch BE/ BTech(CS/IT)
  • Great academic track record ( remember we are building a small team and just want the very best) and / or Great companies experience

  • The programming languages are mainly Python and Java
  • Understand the infrastructure details of public clouds and use devops best practices to implement provisioning


  • A BS/MS degree in Computer Science -or- a related field
  • Strong software design and implementation skills in building infrastructure frameworks
  • Experience building and operating extensible, scalable resilient systems
  • Working knowledge of Java and Python 
  • Solid understanding of basic systems operations (disk, network etc)
  • Willingness and ability to learn new languages and concepts

Nice to Haves:

  • Cloud infrastructure systems engineering experience
  • Experience in building control planes

2. Software Engineer (Full Stack):

We are looking for passionate software engineers with different levels of experience to create a modern, sleek UI with consumer grade design that makes the Yugabyte Platform extremely easy to use. This involves working with the latest UI frameworks, adopting emerging UI technologies as appropriate and ensuring that the app works on a variety of devices by using a responsive design.

Note on compensation

  • At the time of joining the company, 5000 ESOP will be offered
  • Stock upside assumed against this ESOP allocation is divided by 4 in arriving at indicative CTC (many companies add all stocks / RSUs value accruing over 4 years. If the same is done then indicative CTC will be in excess of 1 crore)
  • For 0-1 year experienced folks, out of the compensation mentioned, the fixed part would be 24 LPA, and the remaining would be in ESOPs. 
  • Folks with more than 1 year of experience can expect higher CTC
