How Hiring Works at Akita
Stage 1: Getting to Know You
Everyone does their best work when their skills and passion find the right home. At Akita, hiring starts with two phone screens. In the first, we’ll learn about what motivates you and your compatibility with our team. The second is focused on exploring your work experience.
Stage 2: Working Together
The best way to see if we work well together is to work together. You’ll participate in hands-on exercises that enable you to showcase various aspects of your skillset. For example, a backend engineer may work on a debugging or open-ended demo building exercise.
Stage 3: Deep Dive
We care as much about the way you love to work as we do about your capabilities. In this final stage, we’ll talk in depth about your previous achievements and how you work in a team. You’ll also have plenty of opportunities to ask us questions.
Why Akita is Different
Why Akita is Right for You
You Dig Our Dream
As APIs and microservices make it easier and easier to build complex software systems, more and more developers are struggling to keep their systems up and running within their given timeframes. Akita is alleviating pressure by making observability accessible to 99% of developers.
You Love a Challenge
We’re watching network traffic via eBPF, parsing traffic to automatically infer API models and insights, in almost real-time, and delivering this information to developers in a digestible way. Yep, we tackle tough engineering and UX challenges everyday.
You Want to Join a Fast & Agile Team
We are a tight-knit and deeply collaborative team. Everyone is a decision-maker, and each one of us has the power to make an immediate impact. No long drawn-out deadlines. At Akita, deadlines are hourly, weekly, and monthly.
Life At Akita
What They Need
Everything we build is in the service of making observability easier for developers.
Ship & Iterate Quickly
Our shipping deadlines are measured in days and weeks, rather than months or years. We move, get feedback, and progress fast.
Everyone Makes an Impact
At Akita, we all have the power to make a huge impact. If you’re looking for a place where your hard work gets directly in front of users almost immediately, look no further.
Our Guiding Philosophies
Our guiding philosophies help us create an environment where everyone can do their best work while feeling at home.
Random Good Times
When we say "fun" is important to us, we mean both during and outside of work. We may be remote-first, but we have a lot of fun virtually and when we get together for our quarterly off-sites.
