Want to empower digital business through real-time analytics delivered as a service? Passionate about putting the power of machine data analytics in the hands of everyone by unifying all data types, enabling universal access and leveraging cloud economics – all this from a single, unified platform delivered and consumed as a service? Come talk with us!

The proliferation of machine log data has the potential to give organizations unprecedented real-time visibility into their infrastructure and operations. With this opportunity comes tremendous technical challenges around ingesting, managing, and understanding high-volume streams of heterogeneous data.

As a Backend Software Engineer, you'll build the system that runs our elastic big data analytics platform written in Scala that runs in the AWS cloud. Our system is a highly distributed, fault tolerant, multi-tenant platform that includes bleeding edge components related to storage, messaging, search, and analytics. This system ingests and analyzes terabytes of data a day, while making petabytes of data available for search and forensic analysis, and is expected to reach substantially larger scale in the near future.

You are a strong software engineer who is passionate about large-scale systems. You care about producing clean, elegant, maintainable, robust, well-tested code; you do this as a member of a team, helping the group come up with a better solution than you would as individuals. Ideally, you have experience with performance, scalability, and reliability issues of 24x7 commercial services.

What you will be doing:
  • Designing and implementing extremely high-volume, fault-tolerant, scalable backend systems that process and manage petabytes of customer data.
  • Analyze and improve the efficiency, scalability, and reliability of our backend systems.
  • Write robust code; demonstrate its robustness through automated tests.
  • Work as a member of a team, helping the team respond quickly and effectively to business needs.
  • Help manage exabytes of data using the latest and greatest technologies such as Kafka, Kubernetes and Docker!
Requirements:
  • B.S. in Computer Sciences or related discipline (M.S., or Ph.D. is a plus)
  • Minimum 3+ years of industry experience with a proven track record of ownership and delivery
  • Experience in multi-threaded programming and distributed systems.
  • Object-oriented programming experience, for example in Java, Scala, Ruby, or C++.
  • Understand performance characteristics of commonly used data structures (maps, lists, trees, etc).
  • Desire to learn Scala, an up-and-coming JVM language (scala-lang.org).
Desirable:
  • Experience in big data and/or 24x7 commercial service is highly desirable.
  • You should be happy working with Unix (Linux, OS X).
  • Agile software development experience (test-driven development, iterative and incremental development) is a plus.
