We work on cutting edge data management products that transform the way businesses operate.\nAs a distributed systems engineer (if you are good) , you will get to work on defining key elements of our real time analytics platform, including\n1.\tDistributed in memory data management\n2.\tOLTP and OLAP querying in a single platform\n3.\tApproximate Query Processing over large data sets\n4.\tOnline machine learning algorithms applied to streaming data sets\n5.\tStreaming and continuous querying\n\nRequirements:\n1.\tExperience in testing modern SQL, NewSQL products highly desirable\n2.\tExperience with SQL language, JDBC, end to end testing of databases\n3.\tHands on Experience in writing SQL queries\n4.\tExperience on database performance benchmarks like TPC-H, TPC-C and TPC-E a plus\n5.\tPrior experience in benchmarking against Cassandra or MemSQL is a big plus\n6.\tYou should be able to program either in Java or have some exposure to functional programming in Scala\n7.\tYou should care about performance, and by that, we mean performance optimizations in a JVM\n8.\tYou should be self motivated and driven to succeed\n9.\tIf you are an open source committer on any project, especially an Apache project, you will fit right in\n10.\tExperience working with Spark, SparkSQL, Spark Streaming is a BIG plus\n11.\tPlans & authors Test plans and ensure testability is considered by development in all stages of the life cycle.\n12.\tPlans, schedules and tracks the creations of Test plans / automation scripts using defined methodologies for manual and/or automated tests\n13.\tWork as QE team member in troubleshooting, isolating, reproducing, tracking bugs and verifying fixes.\n14.\tAnalyze test results to ensure existing functionality and recommends corrective action. Documents test results, manages and maintains defect & test case databases to assist in process improvement and estimation of future releases.\n15.\tPerforms the assessment and planning of test efforts required for automation of new functions/features under development. Influences design changes to improve quality and feature testability.\n\n16.\tIf you have solved big complex problems, we want to talk to you\n17.\tIf you are a math geek, with a background in statistics, mathematics and you know what a linear regression is, this just might be the place for you\n18.\tExposure to stream data processing Storm, Samza is a plus\nOpen source contributors: Send us your Github id\n\nProduct:\nSnappyData is a new real-time analytics platform that combines probabilistic data structures, approximate query processing and in memory distributed data management to deliver powerful analytic querying and alerting capabilities on Apache Spark at a fraction of the cost of traditional big data analytics platforms.\nSnappyData fuses the Spark computational engine with a highly available, multi-tenanted in-memory database to execute OLAP and OLTP queries on streaming data. Further, SnappyData can store data in a variety of synopsis data structures to provide extremely fast responses on less resources. Finally, applications can either submit Spark programs or connect using JDBC/ODBC to run interactive or continuous SQL queries.\n\nSkills:\n1.\tDistributed Systems,\n2.\tScala,\n3.\tApache Spark,\n4.\tSpark SQL,\n5.\tSpark Streaming,\n6.\tJava,\n7.\tYARN/Mesos\n\nWhat's in it for you:\n1.\tCutting edge work that is ultra meaningful\n2.\tColleagues who are the best of the best\n3.\tMeaningful startup equity\n4.\tCompetitive base salary\n5.\tFull benefits\n6.\tCasual, Fun Office\n\nCompany Overview:\nSnappyData is a Silicon Valley funded startup founded by engineers who pioneered the distributed in memory data business. It is advised by some of the legends of the computing industry who have been instrumental in creating multiple disruptions that have defined computing over the past 40 years. The engineering team that powers SnappyData built GemFire, one of the industry leading in memory data grids, which is used worldwide in mission critical applications ranging from finance to retail."
