Pollfish is disrupting a $50B Market Research industry and makes consumer market research available to all.
With our DIY research tool combined with our proprietary network of 600M consumers, we enable companies of all sizes to connect with and understand real consumers worldwide in a fast, easy and cost-effective way.
We have raised millions from institutional investors and we are helping more than 1,500 clients - from small startups to fortune 10 companies - with their research needs. With offices in NYC and Athens, Pollfish doubled in size the past year.
Pollfish lives on the Cloud, and is deployed several times a day using Kubernetes. A reactive microservice architecture underpins the entire platform. The core application is written in Play (Scala), while the vast majority of the supporting services are using the Twitter stack. The front end is written in React/Redux.
Data is constantly on the move at Pollfish. From Apache Kafka, to Postgres, to Apache Druid and Cassandra, to the data-lake. Distributed programming based on Apache Spark, and Apache Flink is leveraged to handle efficiently the immense amounts of data that Pollfish has to process daily. Machine Learning and Artificial intelligence models allow Pollfish to tackle fraud, and improve data quality.
Running a highly available platform comes with its operational challenges. Services need to be optimally tuned, elastic, load balanced and vigilantly monitored. Continuous integration and delivery processes using sophisticated pipelines undertake all repetitive tasks efficiently and reproducibly. At the same time all of our infrastructure needs to be reproducible and always consistent, so “infrastructure as code” is a principle we operate by.
We are currently planning to strengthen our Devops team so we are looking for a DevOps engineer that would like to be part of all this. To succeed in this mission you need to be proficient with containers and container orchestration frameworks (Docker/Kubernetes) as well as configuration management and infrastructure automation solutions (Ansible). Automation servers (e.g. Jenkins) and CI/CD pipelines should also be part of your arsenal while Linux system management skills are indispensable. Development experience in a programming ecosystem (e.g. Java, GoLang) will be appreciated.
Pollfish is committed to hiring and retaining a diverse workforce. We are proud to be an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action-Employer, making decisions without regard to race, color, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, genetics, disability status, age, marital status, protected veteran status or any other protected class.
