Staff Software Engineer, Big Data Transformation Team, Public Company


Do you want to work on the third largest user graph database in the world that is only second to Google and Facebook?

Do you want to work on data pipelines that handle 100+ PBs of data?

Work alongside engineers that have come from top name Silicon Valley tech giants, built first-of-its-kind exa-scale data storage systems, and are open source project committers?


This publicly traded company in downtown San Francisco sells a product that has big data at its core. There are seven different engineering teams that make up the Engineering organization that all work on big data systems. The real value of the company's product comes from a 100K core Hadoop cluster that processes a massive amount of data related to identity resolution. It helps companies identify users' multiple devices for marketing, identity in healthcare, and risk and fraud purposes.

The ideal candidate builds massively scalable distributed systems in Java or C/C++ and will have experience with big data technologies like Hadoop and Spark. This person will be a strong computer scientist fundamentally, and experience with specific technologies will be a good indicator of relevant experience but likely a secondary consideration behind the fundamentals.

The company has recently gone public and offers lucrative RSU offerings. It has $1.5B+ in the bank and is highly profitable.


Required Skills & Experience

  • Expertise in Java or C/C++
  • Expertise in designing and implementing distributed systems for streaming big data processing
  • Strong communication and ability to own solutions and end-to-end project-based responsibilities
  • Senior or lead level in experience
  • Capable of working independently and in a team setting


Desired Skills & Experience

  • Experience with Hadoop, Hive, Kafka, Spark, or similar data processing technologies
  • Experience working on petabyte-scale distributed systems
  • Experience in parallel programming


What You Will Be Doing

Tech Breakdown

  • 30-40% architecture and design
  • 60-70% implementation
  • Java-based distributed systems
  • Cloud environment with AWS and GCP


The Offer

  • Highly competitive compensation in the $200-500K total cash compensation range
  • Downtown San Francisco, conveniently located to Montgomery BART station
  • RSUs, strong medical, dental, and vision plan
  • Potential for sign-on bonus as well as annual bonuses
  • Strong company identity, engineering culture, and value on a tech product


Applicants must be currently authorized to work in the United States on a full-time basis now and in the future.
