Company Overview 

Shoreline is transforming how companies manage production operations by making it as easy to manage 10,000 servers as it is to manage 1 server.   Companies today are seeing an explosion in their infrastructure as their businesses grow with much slower growth in their DevOps teams.  Shoreline has created the world's first production operations platform that provides powerful real-time debugging, incident remediation and automation.  Shoreline is helping improve availability and customer experiences while reducing toil for site reliability engineers.


Shoreline was founded in 2019 by veteran AWS technologists and operators who built and maintained mission critical databases and cloud services that ran on millions of hosts using self-tuning feedback control systems.  We are headquartered in the Bay Area with employees around the world. Our $20M+ Series A funding was led by Canvas Ventures and NTTVC.  


Culture is a big component of a small startup. At Shoreline, we believe in bringing each of our unique viewpoints and approaches to solve tough problems. At Shoreline, you will find extremely intelligent, driven Shoreliners who are humble, curious, open-minded and collaborative.   We are looking for individuals with a strong commitment to ‘the team’ and a willingness to pitch in as needed.
