Skills & requirements
YOU:

- You have great practical knowledge of Golang and at least one other programming language

- You’ve got significant experience working on high performance distributed systems - with a story or two to share about that process

- Your judgement on choosing a database technology (SQL or NoSQL) is not based exclusively on technological fads

- You understand that tracing, profiling and in general measuring things is a better approach, then just guessing why “stuff” doesn’t work

- You value coding as your craft and understand that writing software is about solving technical problems - but equally important something to be maintained and understood by your peers

- You’re proactive and curious: always eager to learn new things and happy to share your knowledge with others

YOUR CHALLENGES:

- Run, maintain and design new microservices that live inside a big Golang monorepo

- Work on a high performance system that equally uses RPC and an event-bus paradigm to serve thousands of concurrent requests

- Interact with our Google Cloud Platform infrastructure that re-uses a huge part of the google ecosystem: e.g. BigQuery, Pub/Sub, AppEngine, Kubernetes

- Switch confidently between in-memory storage (redis), traditional RDBMS systems (mysql) and columnar storage systems (Datastore/Bigtable)

- Work in a collaborative environment, finding solutions to business challenges with team members from a variety of disciplines like Data Science, Business Intelligence or Product.

- Own and move a project ahead in its full lifecycle: design, implementation, testing and deployment.
