The Platform Experience group in the Rackspace Solutions and Strategy (RSS) organization is looking for talented engineers to help build our next generation private cloud platform.
As a developer in our team, you will be responsible for building cutting-edge applications & services that deliver innovative outcomes to our customers. You will leverage the best of modern cloud native components, building solutions that are operationally robust and impressively scalable.
How We Work

We continuously evaluate new technologies to assess their fit within our solutions, so a strong desire to learn is a must.
