Do you have passion for solving problems that come at scale? At eBay, we deal with petabytes of data that is queried and transformed at a rapid basis - we do 100s of billions of queries per day and update billions of records.
NuData is a team of like-minded engineers pushing the envelope to build the next generation database platform for eBay. We have already built distributed, hyper-scale, and highly-performant document and key-value databases which leverage open-source cloud technologies.
We are looking into enhancing our core databases with a new database engine and also actively working on building other database families like columnar and graph , both of which will be able to dynamically scale to 1000s of shards, spanning across multiple data centers, just like the document and key-value databases.
This is the technical problem this team is tasked to solve, and we are looking for super bright engineers who are passionate about pushing the envelope and not settling for the status quo.
An engineer in the database platform team has knowledge and ideas on how to develop innovative solutions smartly. The platform is being built by a team that has the culture and the environment technologists find at a startup.
We are looking for outstanding software engineers with strong development experience in building scalable and geo-distributed solutions.
The engineer should also have experience in working with production infrastructure.
The ideal candidate will have strong understanding of relevant programming languages, databases internals, distributed systems, consensus algorithms, transaction systems, consistency levels, web protocols, design patterns, and storage and network solutions.
Exceptional problem solving abilities will be critical for success, as will be a focus on quality. In our environment, quality is everyone’s responsibility, passion is key, innovation and creativity is strongly encouraged.
The successful candidate will have a big impact on the product and is expected to participate in the entire life cycle of a product, ranging from architecture through testing and production rollout.
