Who You Are

  • You have experience with one or more higher-level JVM-based data processing frameworks such as Beam, Dataflow, Crunch, Scalding, Storm, Spark, or something we didn’t list- but not just Pig/Hive/BigQuery/other SQL-like abstractions
  • You know how to write distributed, high-volume services in Java or Scala or Python
  • You are knowledgeable about data modeling, data access, and data storage techniques.
  • You understand the value of collaboration within teams, are excellent communicators, and can build relationships with a diverse set of stakeholders.
