Posted on Saturday, January 7, 2023


We’re seeking a talented and motivated full-time Software Engineer to join our growing team. You will work as part of the engineering team to:

  • Develop the Tailscale product, contributing to client code and backend services. The codebase is mostly Go, and we’re seeking someone who has experience in and enjoys writing code in Go.

  • Bring a special focus on developing the Windows client, and especially in the deployment in large Windows Enterprise environments.

Because we’re an early-stage and fully remote company, we’re looking for a motivated individual who can help move the product forward. The ability to think on your feet, collaborate with highly technical teams, and comfort working asynchronously are essential.

Skillsets of interest

  • The Tailscale Windows client is primarily developed in Go, calling win32 APIs. Experience with win32 is a must.

  • Experience with Enterprise features of large Windows deployments including but not limited to:

    • Active Directory forests and Domain Controllers with multiple regional sites

    • Deployment of software using SCCM and Endpoint Configuration Management

    • Multiuser Windows systems

    • Group Policies and NRPT rules

    • Credential Guard and successfully use of Trusted Platform Modules

    • Active Directory Service Interfaces (ADSI)

    • Proxy Auto-Configuration (PAC)


  • Experience developing in Go, used for much of the system. Previous experience in #golang makes ramping up quicker

  • Ability to give and process constructive feedback, as well as work independently

  • Flexibility to adjust to the dynamic nature of a startup

With the team, you’ll succeed with these sorts of goals

  • Work as part of a team of engineers and designers to add features in the Tailscale service

  • Take a holistic view of the product, from customer needs to client applications to the admin console
