Looking for a C/C++ developer

The MariaDB Foundation is looking for a mid to senior-level C/C++ developer to work on MariaDB Server.

Our small team works remotely to build and support MariaDB, and requires strong skills in written English for daily communication.

A fulltime position is preferred.

We are looking in particular for people with an understanding of how open source works, how collaboration is fostered, how licenses and copyright work, and how tools such as git and test suites are best used. The person(s) should be a C/C++ developer by background, and ideally have a proven track record of producing code patches that have been accepted in major open source projects.

MariaDB Foundation CEO steps down

The time has come for me, Otto Kekäläinen, after serving as the CEO of the MariaDB Foundation since January 2015, to step down. The board has already quietly been searching for a new CEO for some months, but no contract has been signed as of yet, so if you are interested in the position, please send an application to jobs@mariadb.org.

This is a good time for a change of leadership. Some 4 years ago when I started in the MariaDB Foundation the MariaDB Server was clearly the underdog compared to it’s biggest rival. Since then we have won major successes and are now well established as the new M in LAMP thanks to our broad uptake in Linux distributions and development environments (such as WAMP, XAMP, VVV etc.), hosting companies boast on their websites that they offer MariaDB and many developers and architects seem to prefer MariaDB due to our reputation of being well built.
