Backend Software Engineer

at Bright.com in San Francisco, CA   —   Jul 01, 2014   |  
Overview
Have you ever wanted to disrupt an established industry and give it a much-needed tech makeover? At Bright, this could be your chance! This is an opportunity to make your mark in the job search space by developing new tools for job seekers and employers alike. You won't be inheriting existing code that needs to be maintained -- you will be building these tools from scratch.

Bright harnesses the power of Big Data to help eliminate the noise in the hiring process - efficiently connecting job seekers to their best opportunities, and employers to their top prospects.

We aren't just innovating the online job search -- we build technology that moves the entire labor market, faster.

The ideal candidate is language agnostic, and can work with both scripting languages (such as Python and PHP) as well as strongly typed languages (such as C++ and Java), and has a passion for taking an idea and exploring, tinkering, debating, and demonstrating the fastest, most efficient, flexible, and scalable implementation approaches. Experience working with traditional SQL databases as well as newer technologies, indexes, and data stores is key (such as Solr, ElasticSearch, Redis, or Neo4j), and the candidate must be comfortable using Linux and other open source technologies.

Additionally Desired Qualifications
- Experience building applications using social graphs as well as social analytics
- Proficiency with data stores such as CouchDB or Solr; or experience with NoSQL Architecture
- Experience working with high-traffic portals, and developing applications for optimal scalability
