We are working on enhancing our core databases with a new database engine and also actively working on building other database families like columnar and graph, both of which will be able to dynamically scale to 1000s of shards, spanning across multiple data centers, just like the document and key-value databases. This is the technical problem this team is tasked to tackle, and we are looking for super forward-thinking engineers who are passionate about questioning the limitations and not settling for the status quo.
An engineer in the database platform team has knowledge and ideas on how to develop innovative solutions smartly. The platform is being built by a team that has the culture and the environment technologists find at a startup. We would like to add outstanding software engineers with strong development experience in building scalable and geo-distributed solutions and experience in working with production infrastructure.
Our ideal candidate would have a strong understanding of relevant programming languages, databases internals, distributed systems, consensus algorithms, transaction systems, consistency levels, web protocols, design patterns, and storage and network solutions.
Exceptional problem solving abilities will be essential for success, as will be attention to quality. In our environment, quality is everyone’s responsibility, passion is key, innovation and creativity is strongly encouraged. You will have a big impact on the product and is expected to participate in the entire life cycle of a product, ranging from architecture through testing and production rollout.
