  • Grow your ability to design, implement, and own critical features of a product used by millions of customers
  • Evaluate technical approaches and drive consensus with your engineering peers
  • Use data to solve real world problems and improve customer experience
  • Have access to experienced engineers as mentors and supporters

What to Bring

  • BS degree in Computer Science, or a related field with equivalent experience
  • 7+ years professional software engineering experience
  • Strong experience with Java 8 or higher preferred (or an equivalent programming language)
  • End to end experience supporting stream and batch processing of high scale data pipelines
  • Experience with in-stream data processing using tools such as Flink, Kafka, Spark
  • Experience with Cloud Computing platforms (AWS, Google cloud, Azure)
  • Have a solid understanding of common software data structures and algorithms
  • Be a quick learner that can leverage surrounding resources to solve their problems while helping others solve theirs
  • Passionate about problem solving through software with a strong sense of ownership for the code that you ship
  • Seeks self-improvement and is adaptable to suggestions and feedback

Nice to Have

  • Experience working on media streaming products
  • Experience working with low-latency services operating in a 24x7 environment at scale
  • Full-stack industry experience, or hands-on familiarity with both client and server technology, especially native client applications
  • Experience with batch data processing using tools such as SQL, Snowflake, Hadoop
  • Experience with Time Series Databases (like AWS Timestream or Prometheus )
  • Experience with observability solutions and processes that support products in near-real time at scale
