🚀 About The Role

As a Senior Engineer on the Platform services team, you will focus on the most critical system in our stack - our ingestion system. You'll balance enabling our product requirements with working on advancing our platform to collect even more data at an even higher scale. You'll regularly work alongside our Chief Architect to make sure we're ready for future growth.

We’re not shy about our rapid pace. We’ve experienced incredible victories because we come up with bold solutions and have them built before our competitors have poured their morning coffee. You understand that the common way to solve a problem is occasionally not the best way, and you want to innovate. You’ll need to learn quickly, fail fast, communicate often, pivot gracefully, grow from your mistakes and iterate.

🔧 Resposnibilities

  • You'll focus on the ingestion system, adding new features, fixing bugs, and improving performance and scalability.
  • When you're not working on ingest, you'll help the team build the platform that powers the Quantum experience.

💡 Requirements

  •  5+ years of professional C++ experience
  • Experience with high throughput ingest/data systems
  • Database knowledge; BigQuery preferred
  • Cloud computing experience
  • Compensation: $150,000 - 170,000

  • Nice to Have:

  • Experience with golang
  • Experience with message queues (e.g. kafka, puslar)
  • Familiarity with GCP and it's products

What does career growth look like on your team?

For the Quality Assurance Analyst, the growth opportunity is off the charts! My goal is that individuals in this role spend around 80% doing their daily tasks and 20% doing dedicated learning towards a specific craft. This learning could be directed towards automation, front end or back end engineering, or dipping their toe into product management.
