TileDB is looking for a strong database systems engineer to join our growing development team. You will be responsible for implementing new database features in Rust, owning delivery from design to implementation. Strong skills in query parsing, optimization, and execution are required, along with fundamental algorithms, data structures and optimization techniques. Strong preference for prior contribution to or deep experience with Apache Arrow DataFusion.


We build the TileDB Cloud Database, and an interlocking set of vertical solutions using the TileDB Arrays system: for genomics, geospatial, imaging, and other applications. TileDB was founded in 2017, after several years of implementation at Intel Labs, to solve use-cases at the Broad Institute and MIT. TileDB has raised over $50 million in funding from high-profile investors, with our most recent funding round ($36 million Series B) announced in Oct. 2023.

We are a fully-remote, distributed team with employees in the USA, Europe, and South America. Our core business hours are 9 AM-12 PM US Eastern Time. Our headquarters are in Cambridge, MA, USA and we have a subsidiary in Athens, Greece.


In your first 15 days, you will familiarize yourself with the fundamental TileDB Array APIs. You will learn how to use TileDB in various applications, and learn about TileDB Cloud. Our engineering team will help with your onboarding, and prepare you to make your first commit within the first few days at work. After 30 days, you will be fully integrated in our team. You’ll be an active contributor and maintainer of our libraries, and will be ready to start designing and implementing new features.
