  • Help drive optimization, testing, and tooling to improve data and systems quality.
  • Work in multi-functional agile teams to continuously experiment, iterate, and deliver on new product objectives.
  • Take operational responsibility for the services that are owned by your team
  • Work in an environment that supports your individual growth by providing you ambitious tasks to tackle and the time needed to acquire new skills

Who you are

  • Have 3+ years of professional experience working in a product facing environment.
  • Worked with high volume heterogeneous data, preferably with distributed systems such as Hadoop, BigTable, and Cassandra.
  • Experienced in writing distributed, high-volume services in Java or Scala.

  • Knowledgeable about data modeling, data access, and data storage techniques.
  • Deployed and operated services in a cloud environment such as GCP or AWS
