The role

Watershed is a software platform for running a world-class climate program. We measure our success in the carbon reduction achievements of our customers. We are looking for team members who love building enabling systems that empower other engineers and power a high quality product experience.

The infrastructure team at Watershed owns foundational capabilities that our product is built upon. We support an application with a quickly growing codebase and build systems that are used by every single engineer at the company.

Watershed has a slightly unconventional philosophy about infrastructure. We hire software engineers with additional skills and experience in cloud infrastructure so that we can design systems and build tools that accelerate our business. This isn’t just about configuring services and managing deployments. We use code–and not just Terraform!–to build a scalable, maintainable foundation for the rest of Engineering.

We’re looking for folks with experience designing and operating resilient systems, working through various stages of scale, and helping Engineering be more effective and productive. Specific experience with Google Cloud Platform is desirable, but not strictly required.

Some traits that are important to our company culture: customer-obsessed, hard-working, inclusive, and optimistic. And we’re looking for owners, so we hope you’ll help us expand this list.

You might be a good fit if:

  • You have 5+ years of engineering experience
  • You’ve worked on Infrastructure or Platform teams, or significant projects involving infrastructure components
  • You enjoy the challenge of building the appropriate level of tooling for the stage and arc of the company
  • You enjoy collaborating closely with engineering teams to deliver great customer outcomes


This role will be located in our San Francisco or New York office.

At Watershed, we strive to design consistent, fair, and competitive compensation programs. The total cash compensation range may be inclusive of several levels at Watershed and final offer will be determined by a number of factors, including the candidate’s skills, capabilities, and location, as well as scope of the role.

The anticipated cash compensation range is in addition to a total rewards benefit package including equity, health/dental/vision insurance, 401(k), unlimited paid time off, paid parental leave, fertility, and mental health programs etc. 

Salary Range
$189,000$241,000 USD



Where does Watershed work?

We have hub offices in San Francisco, New York and London, and some remote team members in the US and EU. Most of our jobs need to be in San Francisco / New York / London, but certain jobs are open to being remote and will be specifically noted on the jobs page and in the job description.

What’s the interview process like?

It starts the same for every candidate: getting to know the team members through 1 to 2 conversations about Watershed, your experience, and your interests. Next steps can vary by role, but usual next steps are a skill or experience screen (e.g. a coding interview for an engineer, a portfolio review for a designer, deeper experience call for other roles) which leads to a virtual or in person interview panel after that if the screens go well. We prioritize transparency and lack of surprise throughout the process.
