Job Description:

Senior Software Engineer, Query Infrastructure We're looking for a Senior Software Engineer to help build out our analytics engine and aren't afraid to tackle big challenges in a fast growing data company. Our engineers are leading the efforts to drive our large scale distributed systems to the 10x level while making innovations to our industry leading analytics capabilities. As a Senior member of the Query team, you will be responsible for designing, building, deploying and operating the underlying distributed systems that power our core analytics product. You will be working at all layers of the analytics engine from the high level analytics algorithms to the low level distributed computation and storage layer. Our systems are based on the modern cloud stack e.g. AWS S3, DynamoDB, Redis/ElastiCache, Kafka, Kubernetes, Terraform, Java, Python. You will be collaborating and sharing your ideas with a group of similarly innovative and curious engineers.

Our design and architecture draws inspiration from many state of the art systems in the big data space e.g. lambda architecture, map-reduce, columnar storage.
