About Earthly

Earthly brings fast, secure, and repeatable CI builds. In a developer’s world of fragmented tools, programming languages, and frameworks, all of which require special environment setup, Earthly solves the “works on my machine” problem for CI/CD pipelines. Earthly is a platform that ensures your builds are executed the same way everywhere: your laptop, your colleague’s laptop, or the cloud. Earthly’s ability to automatically cache and spread computation across compute clusters, as well as the means to sandbox workloads, make it the fastest, yet most secure CI ever. Over 1,700 repositories use Earthly in CI today. Earthly is open-source: GitHub.

We are a small team of talented software engineers building the development tools we wished we had available to us. Among us, we have ex-DigitalOcean, ex-VMware, ex-Tenable, ex-Weave, ex-Twillio, ex-Rudderstack, ex-Google engineers, and an ex-Sony UI designer. What we have in common is a passion for simple, easy-to-use, yet high-impact developer tools. We raised $8.6M from Silicon Valley investors, and a number of high-profile angels, such as the founders of companies like Cockroach Labs, DataDog, DigitalOcean, Mesosphere, Instana, and Sentry, as well as the original creators of tools like Envoy Proxy, Kubernetes, GitHub Codespace, GitHub Copilot, VS code, the Elixir language, pandas, GIMP, and Mesos.


  1. Develop user interfaces - contribute to the frontend of the main Earthly web app using modern web technologies.

  2. Develop a documentation website to migrate the Earthly docs off of GitBook and onto our own web app that we can control and customize.

  3. Pixel-perfect implementation of designs with clean HTML/CSS.

  4. Proactively raise UX concerns that come up during implementation and collaborate with design to get them addressed.

  5. Refactor and unify the codebases of our web properties: website, documentation, blog, and web app. This is needed in order to reuse components across and provide a more consistent look and feel to the user.

  6. Collaborate with the product team to execute on key features, and to deliver on Earthly’s vision.

  7. Empathize with the target audience to improve the overall user experience. In some cases, work directly with users to gather feedback and address their needs.
