How we work at Giant Swarm

Here are some aspects that describe our way of working - we are not perfect but trying our best every day. Iteration is key.

People First

 

For us, ‘people first’ isn’t just a philosophy — it’s why we do what we do. We value our team members who create value for our customers and our company. Creating an environment that allows everyone to work at their full potential is as crucial as fostering a great culture.

Remote

 

Work is where work gets done. With team members from across the globe, we're fully remote and fully committed to outcomes over offices. Work from wherever suits you best and with everyone being remote, you’re always in the loop of what is happening.

Self-Organization

 

Creative work needs freedom and openness. And as with any solution, there is not only the ONE way to get to it, but you do whatever works best for you and our company. Due to the organization of our company you can choose your own focus and niche within the team.

Culture of failure

 

We have a strong culture of failure which is part of our mindset. We don’t do things straight from a guidebook. At Giant Swarm, you have to try things out and learning is mandatory and fun at the same time. If you want to expand your knowledge in a specific area, we support you.

Transparency

 

Our goal is to have as much transparency as possible. We just have limits when it comes to protecting people or legal requirements. Examples: We have transparent salaries, almost all communication channels are open, you can attend any meeting you want. We believe that people need to decide which information they need to, to make the right decisions.

Perks

 

Besides supporting with the obvious, like health insurance, choosing the hardware you like, making attendance of international conferences comfortable, we offer unlimited vacation days and strong work time flexibility. We pay a certain amount on top of your salary to cover additional perks like coworking, gym, lunch etc. you like.

What does Giant Swarm do?


Kubernetes is very complex with many different perspectives, so it's no wonder that explaining what we do can be a bit tricky. For this reason, we've outlined a high-level as well as a deep-tech explanation so you can decide how deep you want to dive into the fascinating world of cloud-native.

Tech

As well as providing managed Kubernetes to our customers, our platform is built with Kubernetes. We automate tasks as much as possible. Mainly we do this by developing Kubernetes operators but we also have some microservices and our front-end components like gsctl. Like upstream Kubernetes, our company is organized using SIGs (Special Interest Groups). Allowing you to go deeper into topics that interest you. If you want to learn more and get a glimpse at what we are working on, check out our GitHub.

 

Non-tech

With microservices and containers - the de facto infrastructure of choice for the majority of large enterprises - it is more important than ever that their cloud-native tech-stack functions optimally. We work with modern enterprise customers to remove the operational overhead that results from running Kubernetes themselves, enabling them to focus on their core business.
