Signal is looking for a Senior Software Engineer who knows Java and/or Go to work with big data on a distributed system. You’ll be solving huge problems on a small team in our Chicago HQ office. If you want to join a high-performing engineering team full of awesome people (who doesn’t?), you should keep reading.
So, what would you be doing?
A few reasons we’re excited to come to work every day
“We’re making Cassandra scale to the needs of our business (more than 2 billion queries per day and growing)” -Aki (engineering manager)
“Building a distributed Jenkins system, running multiple workers on multiple platforms, to not only run front-end and back-end unit tests, but toalso create a pooled set of services to run per developer for long duration, integration and behavior tests.” –John (engineer)
“Our Cassandra Cluster is 60 nodes by five regions. We’re one of the biggest Cassandra deployments that I know of for a company our size. I love that we’re small but mighty, solving the types of problems tackled by much larger teams at Apple or Facebook”. – Jenny (engineer)
“We're switching from using Mongo for storing pending messages to Kafka. The cool part about this is we're going from mongo's do-anything architecture to a stream-based architecture. This means we can scale a lot easier. Once we roll this out is we go from ~5k messages/sec to200k+ messages/sec on a quarter the hardware cost.” – Cliff (engineering manager)
