Dgraph is the world’s most advanced graph database. It is horizontally scalable, synchronously replicated, transactional and distributed. It can do arbitrarily deep joins, while minimizing network communication and disk seeks, scaling well as cluster size increases. It is a low-latency, high-throughput database, serving complex queries over multiple independent data sources in real-time. With over 5.8K Github stars and 100K Docker pulls, Dgraph is gaining steam and has a solid and growing open source community.

Dgraph Labs was started by ex-Google engineers and is VC funded. We are a small team of dedicated engineers, with a mission to build world’s best graph database. Nothing less excites us!

We are looking for outstanding distributed systems engineers to join our team. As part of the team, you would be responsible for the design, architecture, and implementation of Dgraph.
