From our technology to our team members, Neo4j is built on relationships. 
As part of Neo4j product engineering, you will work together with a diverse team of talented colleagues from around the world. Our culture encourages engineers who want to become deep experts in a particular field – or to build broad expertise across several technologies. Our engineers regularly work with peers in field engineering and experience the full lifecycle of the systems they build. 
We build technology that helps cure cancers, addresses diabetes, and gets humans to Mars. We're proud to fight fraud, crush pandemics, and even help journalists uncover the truth. Neo4j’s engineering teams are located in Malmö, Sweden and London, UK. 
Please submit your CV and cover letter in English.

The RoleWe are looking for a software engineer to specialise in the packaging and distribution of Neo4j software. This is one of our most visible surfaces since installation and set-up is the first experience many users have of Neo4j. This team will package the software for various customers including Tesla, NASA and HP to name a few.
We are looking for a candidate with a background in software engineering and an interest in system administration and container technologies; you might have worked as a DevOps engineer with strong interest in software development. As an example we currently work on a helm chart for kubernetes.
This role requires work across a wide range of different technologies and programming languages. You should be comfortable working with this variety, disciplined about choosing the right technology for each situation, and interested in learning unfamiliar technologies. Due to the close collaboration with our core database engineering teams, this role provides the opportunity to build your knowledge of low-level systems programming and database design, if this is something that interests you.

What you'll get to do:

  • Designing and implementing systems for packaging and distributing our software
  • Developing and extending our test and release tooling
  • Maintaining and improving our automatic documentation systems
  • Implementing continuous delivery techniques
  • Troubleshooting and problem solving
  • Upskill yourself in GoLang

Your work will be part of our extensive Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery pipelines which are based on a mixture of open-source, and bespoke specialist tools. These pipelines are responsible for:

  • Elaborate testing, across a wide range of platforms, from the unit-level right up to multi-server soak tests which take weeks to complete.
  • Building and publishing our extensive documentation, with verification of all the included example code.
  • Packaging and publishing software for use by our users and customers. We publish to multiple channels including: DockerHub, public cloud marketplaces, apt and yum repositories, Maven Central and npm.

You should have experience in 3 or more of the following (technologies that we currently use are listed in parentheses):

  • Container technologies (Docker, Kubernetes)
  • Continuous integration (TeamCity)
  • Build management (Make, Maven, Gradle)
  • Cloud deployment (AWS, GCP) 
  • Version control systems (Git)
  • System administration and packaging (Linux, Windows, macOS)
  • Programming and scripting in multiple languages (Java, Golang, Javascript, Bash)
  • Production use of Neo4j or another database
  • Automated testing


  • SE
We don’t expect you to have experience across all these areas, our team has a mix of people with different skill sets. Additionally, our teams are spread over several locations in Europe, so you should be comfortable working as part of a distributed team.
