  • Working on emails and notification systems that sent to millions of people every day (and growing!)
  • Dealing with huge amounts of logs and analytics data that we store on a daily basis. Work with our production team to analyze and interpret this data using data warehousing solutions.
  • Optimize our system architecture for the crazy amount of data that we handle!
  • Other things you find fun! We're an open-minded engineering team that is always looking for ways to take our software and architecture to the next level!

And here are the skills and experience we hope you have:

  • Comfortable with the following words (and are comfortable learning new ones): Node.js, MySQL, Redis/Memcache, SparkPost, Amazon Redshift, big data tools, mobile notifications
  • Interest in search engines, spam filters/general filtering, indexing, big data, messaging. We have tons of fun algorithms we’re looking to write for all of these systems
  • Consider rapid & high-quality development both requirements, not trade-offs
