C++ Ninja who is comfortable with reading and modifying well written open source modern day database systems. Make sure you read the job description and ask me a relevant question when you apply. Applications will be rejected if you do not ask any relevant question to me. All of our engineers work from their choice of location. Fully distributed and remote team. First up - who are we not looking for: - People managers - Project managers - product managers - Leads or ‘architects’ - Junior developers who have not exposed themselves to a lot of C++ or systems code. - Folks who get bogged down by ambiguity or lack of office or amenities. - Cannot join us full time quickly Non-experienced folks, please do not apply. We do not do machine learning or AI. If you join you will not do machine learning. Looking for experienced developers who love deep diving into serious systems C++ code and understanding it and then helping adapt it for our needs. We are betting on a modern day open source analytical database as a core offering that is part of our analytics platform. We need someone to understand the code-base and play with it for a few months and then help us make changes such as adding new functions for advanced computation while keeping the distributed semantics intact. Examples of changes that we anticipate: - Adapting the join options for our needs, eg: full outer join is not supported and there are some restrictions on n-way-join . - Adding custom aggregate functions when querying the DB . Binning of a float column , median of a column or percentile . The more experience you have the better. We are not looking for people managers . We are looking for experienced developers who code for the love of it and we are ready to pay handsomely for such talent. We are a serious enterprise analytics startup with revenues. We like taking a slow approach and growing with the team.
You’re Part: Communication Drive discussions to create/improve product, process and technology Coding Thinking tools, creating tools Build abstractions and contracts with separation of concerns for a larger scope Rapid proto-typing Robust and scalable web-based applications Design Do high level design with guidance; Functional modelling, break-down of a module Thinking platforms & reuse Architecture Do incremental changes to architecture: impact analysis of the same Do performance tuning and improvements in large scale distributed systems Org Development Mentor young minds and foster team spirit You’re Array (Nice to Haves): The farsightedness it takes to look at business problems critically from more than one perspective. The capability to craft object-oriented models and design data structures, implement business logic and data models with suitable class design. Ability to break-down larger/fuzzier problems into smaller ones in the scope of the product Sound soft skills to gel with colleagues from other teams in order to harness the development process. An understanding of the industry’s coding standards and an ability to create appropriate technical documentation. You (Must Haves): Extensive and expert programming experience in any one programming language (strong OO skills preferred). Deep experience in at least one Object Oriented programming language (Java/C/C++, Ruby, Clojure, Scala,and SQL) A solid foundation in computer science, with strong competencies in data structures, algorithms, and software design. Have a penchant for solving complex and interesting problems Worked in startup like environment with high levels of ownership and commitment BTech, MTech, or PhD in Computer Science or related technical discipline (or equivalent). Excellent coding skills – should be able to convert design into code fluently Good skills to write unit & integration tests with reasonable coverage of code & interfaces - TDD is a plus Experience in building highly scalable business applications, which involve implementing large complex business flows and dealing with huge amount of data. Experience with multi-threading and concurrency programming Above exposure in the art of writing codes and solving problems for large scale. You’re Cheers! Apart from all the general benefits of best in industry compensation, equity, healthcare etc , Flipkart prides in calling out the big hand for you to be Great Work, Great People and Great environment.
