  • Leverage best practices in continuous integration and delivery.
  • Help drive optimization, testing and tooling to improve data and systems quality.
  • Collaborate with other engineers, ML experts and stakeholders, taking learning and leadership opportunities that will arise every single day.
  • Work in cross functional agile teams to continuously experiment, iterate and deliver on new product objectives.

Who you are

  • You have at least 5 years of professional experience working in a product-driven environment
  • You know how to work with high volume heterogeneous data, preferably with distributed systems such as Hadoop, BigTable, and Cassandra.
  • You know how to write distributed, high-volume services in Java or Scala.
  • You have a deep understanding of system design, data structures, and algorithms.
  • You are knowledgeable about data modeling, data access, and data storage techniques.
  • You care about agile software processes, data-driven development, reliability, and responsible experimentation.
  • You understand the value of collaboration within teams.

We are proud to foster a workplace free from discrimination. We strongly believe that diversity of experience, perspectives, and background will lead to a better environment for our employees and a better product for our users and our creators.
