Job Overview

Overview & Responsibilities

ObjectRocket, a Rackspace company develops cutting-edge data and analytics solutions for the new generation of distributed, connected business applications. We founded ObjectRocket to tackle a serious deficiency in cloud infrastructure - the database. Currently, there just aren't any good options for developers, where the promise of performance and scalability are real. Most options are general purpose, on-demand oriented architectures that work great for generic elastic compute - but the database presents a unique challenge that existing clouds just don't account for. We used the decades of experience we have building the systems that power some of the busiest sites on the net to create a scalable, reliable, and easy to use database architecture, and wrap it up in our unique POD architecture that can be seamlessly scaled on demand. It's specifically designed and built to run MongoDB at breakneck speeds with world class reliability.
