Data Engineers

 

We are looking for Data Engineers to join our Austin or San Francisco engineering teams and help advance our state-of-the-art Big Data Platform. This role involves direct implementation of our product, immersion in our bleeding edge technologies at very large scale, and build out of new applications and platform components.

It’s an opportunity to develop your skills working alongside a world-class team passionate about unlocking the signal buried in the noise of Big Data. We offer an exciting start up environment as part of CSC’s fast growing Big Data and Analytics group, providing competitive benefits and free daily lunch at our Austin office.

 

Areas of Focus

  • Develop new features to enhance our enterprise big data platform, working with Hadoop, Storm, Kafka, and Elasticsearch.

    • Simple solutions delivered quickly and maintainably. Fire and Forget.

    • Previous experience with Java and/or Ruby

    • Doesn’t try to swallow the world — learns just enough about system to do the job

  • Disciplined & Communicative

    • Not a perfectionist — make the “least, interesting” change so we can find out what else is needed.

    • Assertive — must push back on management if wrong balance is being specified.

    • Constructive — habitually finds creative solutions to blockers

  • Thinks at scale

    • Understands that an elaborate system is better than a complex one, and a scalable system is superior to a performant one

    • Has and learns patterns for decoupling, truth flow, orchestration
