Infrastructure and systems don’t need to suck; we believe deep understanding of fundamentals and solid engineering cure most woes. We are looking for a startup-friendly, devops person to work with the latest Hadoop tech. This is a challenging position and a great opportunity to learn the latest technologies used in the data space.
We strive to make our interview process effective. We can probably get a bunch out of the way if you have some public Github code, or open source contributions we can look at. Our goal is to run the interview cycle and come to a conclusion within a week.
Regularly scheduled after hours support is not required as there is no on-call rotation!
