110d ago

We're looking for a Supabase Platform Engineer to join our team and elevate our PostgreSQL offerings.

You'll work hand-in-hand with the PostgreSQL team and play an instrumental role in technical decision-making and refining internal methodologies.

The focus of this role is around owning stability and deployment of our products. A first step is to streamline artifact builds/deployments via our public supabase/postgres GitHub repository. This repository bundles an array of features/products into docker images and AWS AMIs, giving users the ability to run Supabase on our cloud and locally. Subsequently, the role will function as a bridge between product and infrastructure teams to improve the reliability of product deployments and upgrades.

In this role, your primary responsibilities will include:

  • Refactoring our supabase/postgres repo to improve components and utilize nix for building, packaging, and conducting high-level infrastructure tests.
  • Building tooling that allows for local builds, taps into a public cloud cache, and performs thorough full-stack infrastructure tests on every PR
  • Timely PostgreSQL major, minor, and extension upgrades.
  • Engaging in proactive identification and resolution of production issues in customer deployments.
  • Spearheading the creation of best practices, tools, and tests to ensure enhanced stability and decreased deployment risks over time.

What we need

This role demands the following pivotal qualities:

  1. PostgreSQL Expert: A profound understanding of PostgreSQL and its associated tools. Familiarity with extensions, performance optimization, and best practices is essential.
  2. Infrastructure: Proven expertise in infrastructure management, tooling, and optimization.
  3. Self-directed & Initiative: At Supabase, we value independence and proactive problem-solving. We anticipate you to be a dynamic self-starter, thriving in asynchronous collaboration across diverse teams. Your knack for spotting areas of improvement and commitment to realizing those enhancements will be key.

What you’ll do

  • Improve the utility and efficiency of our PostgreSQL offerings.
  • Contribute to the enhancement of our public GitHub repositories, especially supabase/postgres.
  • Develop tooling and solutions within the Supabase ecosystem.
  • Engage with customers routinely, ensuring our solutions resonate with their needs.
  • Address and resolve GitHub and Support issues.

Must haves

  • 3+ years experience with PostgreSQL and its ecosystem.
  • Familiarity with Nix, Docker, Git, GitHub and associated tooling.
  • Eagerness to mold and adapt our development tools/stack.
  • Comfortable with regular interactions with customers

Nice to haves

  • Experience with PostgREST, gotrue, and other Supabase stack components.
  • Exposure to public cloud platforms and deployment methodologies.
  • Contributions to significant, open-source projects in the PostgreSQL domain.

We offer:

  • 100% remote work from anywhere in the world. No location-based adjustment to your salary.
  • ESOP (equity ownership in the company)
  • Autonomous work. We work collaboratively on projects, but you set your own pace.
  • Health, Vision and Dental benefits. Supabase covers 100% of the cost for employees and 80% for dependents
  • Generous Tech Allowance for any office setup you need
  • Annual Education Allowance
  • Annually run off-sites.


Supabase adds auth, realtime, and restful APIs to Postgres without a single line of code.

Each project within Supabase is an isolated Postgres cluster, allowing customers to scale independently, while still providing the features that you need to build: instant database setup, auth, row level security, realtime data streams, auto-generating APIs, and a simple to use web interface.

We are a fully remote company.

Key Tech: Javascript, Typescript, Go, Elixir, PostgREST (haskell), Postgres, Pulumi.

About the team

  • We're a startup. It's unstructured.
  • Collectively founded more than a dozen venture-backed companies.
  • More than 10 different nationalities.
  • We deeply believe in the efficacy of collaborative open source. We support existing communities and tools, rather than building "yet another xx".
  • We "dogfood" everything. If you use it in your project, we use it in Supabase.
  • The entire process is fully remote and all communication will happen over email or via video chat.
  • Once you've submitted your application, the team will review your submission, and may reach out for a short screening interview over video call.
  • If you pass the screen you will be invited to up to four follow up interviews. The calls:
    • usually take between 20-45 minutes each depending on the interviewer.
    • are all 1:1.
    • will be with both founders, a member of either the growth or engineering team (depending on the role), and usually one other person from your immediate team or function.
  • Once the interviews are over, the team will meet to discuss several roles and candidates and may:
    • ask one or two follow-up questions over email or a quick call.
    • go directly to making an offer.
