We are solving really hard problems at massive scale with Node.js, Riak, Redis and run on Joyent Cloud. We are generating a lot of data in the process - more than 25 billion events every day.

Hidden inside this mountain of data are crucial insights into how to make our users happier, make our service better, and keep our operating costs down. The thing is, taming this data beast is hard, and not everybody has the right mindset to do the job. We just jumped into the Hadoop ecosystem and are running our own cluster which processes terabytes of data.

Work in cross-functional teams.... Helping our data scientists get the most out of our data. Write code that touches millions of users every day. Some of the things we look for are: Some formal education in Computer Science or equivalent, but the exact degree or number of years of professional experience you have isn°t as important as your enthusiasm and ability.

HBase and Zookeeper experience from a large production environment. Java experience. Experience working with Hive, Pig, and MapReduce is a plus. You have a geniune curiosity about data Experience with large data stores.

Any experience with Javascript, JSON, Riak, and Redis is helpful but no requirement. Signs of an entrepreneurial or intellectual exploration. Hacker mentality. You°re scrappy and want to get things done.

You want to be part of the team building a voice platform for hundreds of millions of people. If you have a Github account - please submit it with your application.

It°s no small feat to achieve, to keep one of the world°s fastest growing voice applications humming along and growing at a phenomenal pace. But we are 50 dedicated individuals who are putting some of the most exciting technology in the world to work right now - we are the world°s largest Node.js site, and we also run one of the largest Riak clusters in the world.

We are dedicated and solely focused on building the next generation of communication. The problems we°re facing are at a scale only seen at companies like Twitter and Facebook and we°re looking for exceptional people who can help us tackle them. We closed our first outside round of funding last spring, and our brand new offices are right off Market Street in San Francisco. There°s tons of restaurants and shopping nearby at Westfield and Union Square to spend your hard earned cash on, and if you°re a musician there°s a few outside on the street that we wouldn°t mind you teaching a few new songs to.

There are plenty of MUNI lines right outside, BART is a block away, plus the Ferry to Oakland and Marin is a pleasant fifteen minute stroll or five minute bus ride away.
