Cockroach Labs is the company behind CockroachDB, a cloud-native distributed SQL database. It builds cutting-edge systems infrastructure with massive horizontal scalability; and it’s on a mission to become the preferred platform for global enterprises. In August of 2019, Cockroach Labs announced a $55 million series C funding round, which will be used in part to expand its 115-plus-person workforce across four offices. The company doubled in size in 2018 and plans to continue growth through the end of 2019, specifically in engineering roles.
As the Manager of Recruiting Operations, Shannon Zwicker’s first initiative at Cockroach Labs was to streamline sourcing—and that meant leveling-up the technology the team was already using.
