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.
