  •  Influence architectural decisions and build a performant execution engine which will bring this platform into the future
  •  Actively participating in our daily scrums and help establish best design practices

You'll need to have:

  •  Experience building Analytics Platforms using Java (advanced level)
  •  5+ years experience architecting large-scale distributed systems
  •  3+ years experience with distributed computing
  •  5+ years experience with Spring, Design Patterns, Concurrent Programming, JMX, GC Tuning, ANTLR, Persistence Frameworks, AVRO/JSON and RESTful Services
  •  3+ years experience with Spark and Scala
  •  5+ years experience working in a Test Driven Development and Agile environment
  •  Advanced Java coding skills (5+ years) with focus on Low Latency computing

We'd love to see:
