As a Senior Software Engineer on the Branch Big Data Platform, you will be designing, building, and managing a scalable and highly available real-time Big Data platform handling petabytes of data.  Our platform is designed to ingest and process billions of events per day, and make the resulting aggregations and insights available in minutes in our Analytical data stores for complex ad hoc “slice and dice” queries by both internal and external partners to drive their day to day mobile growth strategies.  Data is at the core of our business, and we’re constantly innovating to make our systems more performant, timely, cost-effective, and capable while maintaining high reliability. You’ll be architecting our core data infrastructure and pipelines using technologies and tools tailored for massive data sets including Flink, Spark, Kafka, and Druid while working in the AWS cloud environment.

  • Strong development skills in Java or Scala
  • Solid background in the fundamentals of computer science, distributed systems, large scale data processing as well as a mastery of database designs and data warehousing.
  • Practical experience managing AWS Cloud environments
  • Experience in containerized deployment or Kubernetes is a big plus!
  • Good understanding of a broad spectrum of NoSQL, traditional RDBMS, and analytical/columnar data stores including Postgres, Druid, Vertica, Redshift, Hadoop, Hive, Cassandra, Aerospike, and Redis
  • Ability to build systems that balance scalability, availability, and latency.
  • Strong ability to advocate for the continual deployment and automation tools, monitoring, and self-healing systems that can help improve the lives of our engineers.
  • Great communication skills and you are a team player who has a proven track record of building strong relationships with management, co-workers, and customers.
  • A desire to learn and grow, push yourself and your team, share lessons with others and provide constructive and continuous feedback, and receptive to feedback from others.
