We are looking for someone to provide innovative solutions to scale and build rock-solid infrastructure for reliable product operations. Our clients expect us to lead and we work hard to deliver reliable and timely information and a phenomenal end user experience.
Performance analysis and tuning will also be a significant responsibility in your job - with our large transactional volume, every last bit of performance counts. You should be able to step back and look at a problem in different light to identify an approach that improves performance while not overly complicating the solution.
You studied computer science (or another tech-heavy science/engineering field) in school and can proudly claim that you spent more than your share of late nights bathed in the glow of compiler output.
You have a track record of large implementations of servers and distributed systems.
You see problems as opportunities and have what it takes to effectively communicate, brainstorm and collaborate to work through them.
