Apache Kafka
  • Demonstrated ability to collaborate and empathize with a variety of individuals. You can iterate with users and non-technical stakeholders and understand how your technical decisions impact them
  • Ability to learn new technology and concepts, even without in-depth experience. Experience developing and managing highly-available distributed systems is beneficial but not required
  • Bias towards quality and thoughtful about edge cases (“anything that can go wrong will go wrong”); writes code that is defensive against all possibilities. Refuses to accept that things will be “probably fine.”
  • Motivated by unlocking or improving user workflows while maintaining engineering quality. Seeks to centralize and abstract complexity away from our users in order to expose simple, powerful APIs for consumers
  • Active US Security clearance, or eligibility and willingness to obtain a US Security clearance is beneficial but not necessary
  • We're hiring engineers who are passionate about solving real-world problems and empowering developers and end-users to do their work optimally. If you're motivated to develop reliable, performant, scalable systems and design robust APIs and primitives, some examples of the types of product work you'd get to do are:
  • Building performant search and indexing ecosystem for complex granularly permissioned of data
  • Designing architecture and opinionated APIs to keep application developers on the happy path
  • Tracing and performance observability in high scale distributed microservice architectures
  • Building reliant, performant, and scalable systems for storage, auth, or asset serving to enable other product teams to build robust applications without deep domain expertise in the underlying systems
  • Automating the deployment, management, and operations of complex distributed systems like Cassandra, Elasticsearch, Kafka, and more across different environments
