Rust Engineer

← Open Jobs at Narrative


We’re looking for an experienced engineer to join our service team in building some incredibly exciting product we have in the pipeline. In this role you will be writing performant, idiomatic, and concurrent Rust code. You care deeply about getting to the root of the problem, you have a first principles approach to problem solving, and relentless in the face of insurmountable challenges. You are happy to think outside the box, and work in environments unfamiliar to you. Your work at Narrative will not only contribute to a world class product, but also help define an entire new category in the making. You will report directly to the CTO, and happily interact with any of the engineering, design and product teams. If you’re excited about working at an early stage startup and building it from the ground-up, comfortable wearing many hats, and eager to positively impact our company’s products, we’d love to hear from you!


  1. Writing performant Rust code across multiple architectures and platforms.
  2. Writing tests and building out large test suites for our unique offerings.
  3. Work with the front-end team to understand their requirements and deliver fast, secure, and idiomatic API to them.
  4. Work alongside our CTO to design, test and deploy new features into production.
  5. Work to ensure we have insight and monitoring on code running in the wild.


  1. At least 3 years of real-world experience writing systems related code.
  2. An understanding of a variety of programming paradigms (functional, concurrent, etc.).
  3. Experience writing Rust (or similar) code.
  4. Experience using Git and contributing to a codebase via the GitFlow methodology.
  5. Handy: have experience with 'embedded' style environments.
  6. Handy: experience in C(++) codebases, and thinking about manual memory/resource management.
  7. Handy: have played with ML models and running them in the wild.
  8. Handy: an interest in photography or some knowledge of image formats/image processing (e.g. JPEG, EXIF, XMP, and the many RAW formats).
