Shoreline was founded to reduce operational pain for service operators.


        Infrastructure and application technologies are exploding. Microservices, containers, Kubernetes, Istio, managed services, serverless computing, functions as a service (FaaS), infrastructure as a code (IaC), machine and deep learning algorithms as a service, Internet of Things (IoT) – the changes to your tech infrastructure are constant and growing at a rapid pace. Operations has become painful due to this ever-increasing complexity of tech infrastructure and customers expecting 24X7 availability. Operators are spending days staring days staring at dashboards and grinding ticket queues daily only to do it again the next day. This is not fun.


       We want to reduce tickets and improve availability by an order of magnitude through automation. We are building a product that allows operators to explore their infrastructure visually, easily identify root causes to resolve issues faster, and increase availability by automating remediation. We have experience building and operating mission-critical databases, cloud services with millions of hosts, and self-tuning feedback control systems. Our team has run some of the world's largest cloud services and seen a huge number of operational issues in the process.

        We are well funded and based in Redwood City, California, and Iasi, Romania.  We are building a brand-new team of elite UI engineers in Iasi who will be developing a highly performant and responsive Single Page Application (SPA) using React, Typescript, and Redux. While the position is based in Iași, Romania, you may be asked from time to time to travel to and work from our headquarters in Redwood City, CA.

        We are driven by the passion to improve operational burden and if you share our passion, care about writing great code and providing great user experience and have built web-based data visualization tools that drive decision making, we would love to talk to you.
