Mission critical systems rely of the platform's high performance, throughput and availability to serve the needs of various customer-facing commerce use cases.
Our team is building a massively scalable, high performance, reliable and cost effective data-centric platform that integrates different storage & caching technologies (tiers) and provides pre-compute, on-demand compute, query and search functionality that is tier-agnostic. Our mission is to enable the business to do interesting things with data at scale and liberate application developers from the burden of managing their storage & compute needs. Our engineers are self-motivated and customer-focused individuals with a good instinct for developing software services with forward looking APIs.
You are an ideal candidate if you have strong distributed systems knowledge with experience in web service design & implementation. You should have a sound understanding of Internet protocols (HTTP, DNS, TCP ...) and experience implementing client/server architecture using C++/Java in a Linux/Unix environment. You must enjoy working on complex software systems in a customer-centric environment and be passionate not only about building good software but also ensuring that same software achieve its goals in operational reality.
