Tinder is a fun new way to meet people. Tinder finds out who likes you nearby, and connects you with them if you're also interested. The whole Tinder experience is designed to be familiar and emulate the way we interact in real life—digitally reproduced, enhanced, and made mobile.
We're a small team that's growing fast! The projects on our plate are amazing, and we're looking for talented people to meet the exciting technical challenges we face. If you're an intelligent and highly ambitious entrepreneur, we want to talk to you!
As a Tinder Database Engineer, you will:
We're looking for:
- Deploy exciting new Tinder features
- Help us scale to meet the extraordinary Tinder demand
- Create DevOps tools and frameworks
- Design and build noSQL solutions that are both highly available and highly performing, ensuring 100% uptime of Tinder for all users across the world
- Support the development team in building features that perform at scale
- Troubleshoot database-related application performance issues and implement solutions
- Assist in the administration, management, and monitoring of all noSQL and Mongo database systems
- Support various internal users in forming optimal queries to fulfill their ad-hoc and reporting data needs
- Develop scripts and tools to support any or all of the above
What's in it for you:
- Strong noSQL experience
- Experience with MongoDB administration and scaling, ideally in a highly available, high traffic system
- Query analysis & testing
- SQL skills (a plus!)
- Redis (a plus!)
- AWS (a plus!)
- A BS or MS in Computer Science or Engineering from a top school is preferred, but a wonderful project list trumps all
