Edgeless Systems GmbHEdgeless Systems GmbH

Software Engineer (Confidential Computing)

Software / Web Development

At Edgeless Systems, we’re passionate about bringing confidential computing and cloud-native computing together. Confidential computing is a powerful, emerging technology but requires some specialized knowledge to use it effectively. Our mission is to build easy-to-use, open-source tools that make confidential computing accessible to everyone. With our technology, we deliver a modern approach to protect sensitive data in a cloud-native environment. We strongly believe that confidential computing is the future of cloud computing.

Founded in 2019, we’ve been on an exciting journey and we’re just getting started. We are looking for team members who bring in new ideas and get things done. If you are thrilled by the prospect of joining a technology start-up with a lot of room for your own ideas and personal growth, we should get to know each other.

Edgeless Systems is headquartered in Bochum, Germany, a place with a vibrant and thriving cybersecurity community. Join us in our office, work remotely or choose a hybrid option.

Our values

We are eager to continuously improve our technology and willing to challenge the status quo. Our strength lies in making decisions as a unified company. We are working towards the same goal and sharing the same vision.

Our tech stack

Most of our code is written in Go, runs inside Intel SGX enclaves, communicates via attested gRPC and is scaled with Kubernetes. On the lower levels, some of our code is written in C, C++, Rust, and ASM.

Azure is our default cloud, but we also use Google Cloud and AWS. Our code and CI are on GitHub. We use Microsoft 365 for communication etc. We pretty much have everything in the cloud.


We are looking for outstanding generalists to work on our core technologies and products. As part of our team you will:

  • Design and develop software with high security requirements in the context of Intel SGX, AMD SEV-SNP, Intel TDX, and AWS Nitro Enclaves
  • Design and develop distributed systems with high safety and availability requirements
  • Implement cryptographic protocols
  • Explore and prototype new ideas
  • Implement CI/CD for your projects and write documentation


Ideally, you fit the following profile. Career starters welcome.

  • You are intelligent, curious and creative
  • You are eager to learn and grow
  • You have some experience in agile software-development practices
  • You are highly motivated and have high expectations of your own performance; you are used to working independently
  • Relevant educational background


  • Competitive compensation (salary and stock options)
  • Flexible working arrangements—remote or in our office in Bochum
  • Exciting tasks in a dynamic environment
  • Opportunity to grow in a great team

We will respond to suitable applications within 48h and arrange a video interview in which we would like to introduce ourselves, get to know you and ask you a few technical questions.
