Cloud spend is expected to hit roughly $600 billion this year, growing at 22.5% YoY.

Cloud costs are the fastest growing expenditure and primary source of budgetary complexity for most companies, requiring a great deal of ongoing effort and resources. Nearly half of all companies struggle to control cloud expenses and more than a quarter take weeks or months to detect cost increases.

Outside of just optimizing costs, companies have to hire armies of engineers whose sole job is to architect, manage, and deploy cloud infrastructure. The necessity for these large teams, even at small companies, underscores a significant problem.

We need a new cloud experience.


Antimetal is changing the way companies use the cloud.

We’ve built a solution that automates the entire cost optimization process, providing personalized savings recommendations based on each customer’s unique usage and infrastructure profile. To date, our technology has helped companies save tens of millions of dollars and thousands of engineering hours.

Simultaneously, we are rapidly branching out into infrastructure-related products, aiming to simplify and enhance the cloud management experience.

We’ve made the cloud cheaper to use. Now we’re making it easier to use.

We are backed by world-class investors and are looking to expand our small team to help manage the explosive growth we’ve seen. That’s where you come in.


As a Senior Backend Engineer, you will play a critical role in designing, developing, and maintaining the backend systems that support Antimetal. You will work collaboratively with cross-functional teams, including data scientists, frontend developers, and machine learning engineers, to ensure our product is robust and scalable.

You will be responsible for designing and building secure, reliable, and efficient backend systems that can handle large volumes of data and support our machine learning models and web applications. In addition, you’ll work closely with our security team to guarantee our systems remain compliant.

  • Extremely through understanding and experience with cloud-based distributed systems and how they work

  • Several years of experience of building containerized applications and using relevant tools such as Docker and Kubernetes

  • Proficient in 2-3 backend languages (C/C++, Go, Python)

  • Familiarity with databases and in-memory caches: MongoDB, Redis, SQL, and NoSQL databases

  • Excellent algorithmic thinking skills
