Cloud cost management is one of the biggest challenges organizations face today. As cloud adoption continues to accelerate, so do the complexities and costs associated with it — and macroeconomic conditions only increase pressure to prove cloud efficiency. That’s why we built CloudZero: a SaaS platform at the intersection of next-generation cloud cost management and FinOps. CloudZero ingests billing and usage data from all cloud, SaaS, and PaaS providers, organizes it in real time according to our customers’ business structures, lets customers view it at any level of time or resource granularity, and ultimately empowers them to make more informed business decisions.

Since our founding in 2016, our mission has been to make efficient innovation a reality for every cloud-driven organization. At CloudZero, we believe every engineering decision is a buying decision, yet the cost conversation often bypasses the engineers who drive those determinations. To solve this, we’ve built a dynamic, single-page application that answers the complex, data-heavy questions every cloud-based organization needs to ask if they want to grow their company profitably.

To date, we’ve raised over $52 million from leading venture capital firms across the country. We’re solving problems of massive scale, business importance, and complexity in a space that needs it more than ever. We’re growing rapidly and would love for you to be a part of it!

About the Role:

Our platform leverages serverless technologies to create a scalable, event-driven architecture. We ingest and normalize millions of events from customer environments in real-time, using tools such as Snowflake, AWS Lambdas and AWS Step Functions to build a flexible, scalable data model that allows our customers to get unparalleled insights into their cloud cost landscape. We are organized into small, tight-knit teams of developers, and using Kanban flow, we collaboratively design, build, validate, ship, and maintain customer-facing features.

We are looking for a person to join our core data capabilities team. This team supports, maintains and expands the architecture at the heart of our product, and is deeply focused on the back-end processes and data manipulation. The ideal candidate for this position would be an individual who not only has a passion for building cloud based solutions that are scalable and maintainable, but who also has never met a query they can’t optimize. If you enjoy answering questions no one has asked, yet, and finding creative solutions to complex architectural and data challenges, this might be the position for you.


  • Design, build and maintain APIs, services, and systems for our main application.
  • Support and maintain the core infrastructure in AWS
  • Support and maintain complex data models and architectures in Snowflake.
  • Build to scale as we bring in users with larger datasets and bigger organizations.
  • Write readable code that is easy to maintain and extend.
  • Collaborate with other engineers on your team to build features that solve real customer problems.
  • Help improve our engineering processes and system to ensure we can move fast and iterate quickly.
