About your role

To accomplish this, you’ll leverage your knowledge of distributed systems, networking, and systems level programming. It’s an exciting time to join the team.


The amount of data stored and analyzed is growing fast, as is the number of transactions and queries processed per second. In response our engineers are constantly thinking of new ways to scale larger.
