Be the impulse we want

Hi, we’re Linx Impulse! We are born as a business unity from the union of 4 top-grade companies, Neemu, Chaordic, Percycle and Shopback.

Our objective is to give a complete solution to on and offline stores, going along through all the customer journey and generating memorable and customised experiences.

We are Big Data for real, terabytes of data passes through here per day. Also, we have petabytes of data stored.


As a Big Data Software developer, you will join our Platform team at Linx Impulse.

The type of problems we solve are rather deep and diverse: you'll need to know how to store terabytes of data; how to process it; and finally, how to make it  accessible with security and efficiency.

The challenges related to storing are mostly of practical nature: terabytes of data processed daily must be readily available in a high-availability environment, using fast and predictable data retrieval techniques.

To achieve that you will make use of innovative technologies related to distributed computing to handle a gigantic volume of information, in a short period, with the expected results. The most commonly used techniques use MapReduce frameworks such as Apache Hadoop and Spark, but other tools can be (and are) used in many particular cases.

And the challenges related to information accessibility are related to creating the most adequate way of access depending on the application: by means of a high-performing REST API, following a service oriented architecture; by a stream of data for creating real time applications or maybe efficiently stored raw data for batch processing.



  • Degree in Computer Science, Information System, Engineering or another quantitive discipline, or equivalent work experience;
  • Knowledge of algorithms, data structures and systems design;
  • Understanding of techniques and best practices to handle extremely large volume of data;
  • Background in distributed systems;
  • Fluency in Java, Scala. Experience with Shell Script will earn you extra points;


  • Comfortable with small, intense and high-growth start-up environment;
  • Experience with large datasets and MapReduce architectures like Hadoop/Hive/Spark/Flink is a plus;
  • Experience with modern data technologies such as Cassandra, Kafka or Elasticsearch is also a plus.
  • Amazon Web Services (AWS)


  • Restaurant Ticket or Market Ticket R$22,96 per workday;
  • Transportation vouchers;
  • Medical care;
  • Dental care;
  • Sharing of profit and results per semester;
  • Educacional aid;
  • Flexible work hours/Bank of hours;
  • Breakfast and snacks.


Our office is located in the Lagoa da Conceição, near the neighborhood center. We won the award "Highlight Award - Interior Offices" by the X Corporate Architecture award. The people here stays really comfortable. We walk barefoot (and slippers when is cold), play snooker and drink a beer when there’s a commemoration.

Do you have a strong willpower and is ready to get the sh*t done? Apply yourself and let’s talk ;)
