Cloud spend is expected to hit roughly $600 billion this year, growing at 22.5% YoY.

Cloud costs are the fastest growing expenditure and primary source of budgetary complexity for most companies, requiring a great deal of ongoing effort and resources. Nearly half of all companies struggle to control cloud expenses and more than a quarter take weeks or months to detect cost increases.

Outside of just optimizing costs, companies have to hire armies of engineers whose sole job is to architect, manage, and deploy cloud infrastructure. The necessity for these large teams, even at small companies, underscores a significant problem.

We need a new cloud experience.


Antimetal is changing the way companies use the cloud.

We’ve built a solution that automates the entire cost optimization process, providing personalized savings recommendations based on each customer’s unique usage and infrastructure profile. To date, our technology has helped companies save tens of millions of dollars and thousands of engineering hours.

Simultaneously, we are rapidly branching out into infrastructure-related products, aiming to simplify and enhance the cloud management experience.

We’ve made the cloud cheaper to use. Now we’re making it easier to use.

We are backed by world-class investors and are looking to expand our small team to help manage the explosive growth we’ve seen. That’s where you come in.


As a Design Engineer (and our first design hire), you will own the entire design and development process for new features and products, ensuring they align with product specifications and brand guidelines.
