Big Data Software Engineer

Interested in Big Data? Want to work with other smart people as part of a best-practice Agile team?

We write Javascript/HTML webapps with ReactJS, back-end services using modern Java 8, and throw in some Scala and Python for machine learning and analytics as required. Most of our projects use Big Data technologies e.g. scale-out NoSQL graph databases, stream processing frameworks, distributed message brokers - think Hadoop, Spark, Kafka, Elasticsearch etc, so understanding of Big Data environments is critical.

We do Agile the right way, not the “we have daily standups” version - you’ll need to be a good communicator and play nicely with others. Our cross-functional teams provision infrastructure, write code, deploy apps and debug production issues. We’re looking for strong coders, but you’ll get bonus points if you can admin a database or know your way around Linux.

What we can offer

  • A great culture and work environment
  • Challenging problems
  • Competitive salaries
  • Flexible work hours
  • Comfy chairs, foosball and delicious coffee

We’re looking for people with

  • A degree in software engineering, computer science, mathematics or statistics
  • A minimum of five years experience in software engineering
  • Experience with Big Data technologies such as Hadoop, Spark and graph databases
  • Experience with search technologies such as Elasticsearch, solr, and lucene
  • Strong Java programming experience
  • Javascript, HTML & CSS programming experience, using frameworks such as React, Angular or similar
  • The ability to design, implement and test software components
  • Experience with stakeholder engagement in geographically distributed teams
  • The ability to work in an Agile environment
