You should be well versed in the innards of databases & search engines, and the underbelly of the web, and be pathologically interested in producing high quality software that’s aesthetically pleasing and wicked fast. You’re not afraid of questions about the comparative algorithmic performance of hash tables vs. B-Trees. If you’ve built a database or a search engine before, we want to hear from you (not used one, built one!).

Experience with search and/or database query processing & high performance distributed computing

Strong knowledge of and experience with SQL (PostgreSQL a plus).

Knowledge of information retrieval theory strongly desired

Experience in building scalable web service applications

Experience in designing for and testing under large data volumes and stress conditions desirable

Experience in the use of agile processes and test driven development a plus

BS/MS in Computer Science, Computer Engineering or similar technical degree

Other Skills

Excellent People Skills - demonstrated ability to work with both technical and non-technical individuals.

Effective in a team environment as well as working independently.

We’re looking for evidence that you’re self-motivated, creative, communicative, hardworking, and personally reliable – if you commit to something, you deliver it.
