Voxer has grown massively in just a few months. We are now the fastest growing voice application in the world and we need your help to keep growing. We are solving really hard problems at massive scale with Node.js, Riak, Redis and run on Joyent Cloud.
We are generating a lot of data in the process - more than 25 billion events every day. Hidden inside this mountain of data are crucial insights into how to make our users happier, make our service better, and keep our operating costs down. The thing is, taming this data beast is hard, and not everybody has the right mindset to do the job.
We just jumped into the Hadoop ecosystem and are running our own cluster which processes terabytes of data. If you love working on these kinds of problems, get in touch and maybe we can figure them out together.
You'll get to work on:
Be the go-to person for all things HBase.
Help scale and develop our HBase cluster.
Plan and design our HBase schemas so things are where they should be.
Work in cross-functional teams....
Helping our data scientists get the most out of our data.
Write code that touches millions of users every day.
Some of the things we look for are:
Some formal education in Computer Science or equivalent, but the exact degree or number of years of professional experience you have isn't as important as your enthusiasm and ability.
HBase and Zookeeper experience from a large production environment.
Experience working with Hive, Pig, and MapReduce is a plus.
You have a geniune curiosity about data
Experience with large data stores.
Signs of an entrepreneurial or intellectual exploration.
Hacker mentality. You're scrappy and want to get things done.
You want to be part of the team building a voice platform for hundreds of millions of people.
