This includes cool features like full text search, analytics, etc. It's extremely rewarding to build something from ground up and push it to customers directly. \n\n\n\n\nArchitecture\n\nOur infrastructure consists of Java on Linux (Debian/Ubuntu) with the stack running on ActiveMQ, Zookeeper, and Jetty. We use Ansible to manage our boxes. We have a full-text search engine based on Elasticsearch which also backs our Firehose API.\n\nHere's all the cool products that you get to work with:\n\n\n* Large Linux / Ubuntu cluster running with the OS versioned using both Ansible and our own Debian packages for software distribution;\n\n* Large amounts of data indexed from the web and social media. We index from 5-20TB of data per month and want to expand to 100TB of data per month; and \n\n* SOLR / Elasticsearch migration / install. We’re experimenting with bringing this up now so it would be valuable to get your feedback.\n\n\n\n\nTechnical Skills\n\nWe're looking for someone with a number of the following requirements:\n\n\n* Experience in modern Java development and associated tools: Maven, IntelliJ IDEA, Guice (dependency injection);\n\n* A passion for testing, continuous integration, and continuous delivery;\n\n\n\n\n\n* ActiveMQ.

We like Linux!\n\n\n\n\n\nCultural Fit\n\nWe’re a lean startup and very driven by our interaction with customers, as well as their happiness and satisfaction. Our philosophy is that you shouldn’t be afraid to throw away a week's worth of work if our customers aren’t interested in moving in that direction.\n\nWe hold the position that our customers are our responsibility and we try to listen to them intently and consistently:\n\n\n* Proficiency in English is a requirement. Since you will have colleagues in various countries with various primary language skills we all need to use English as our common company language. You must also be able to work with email, draft proposals, etc. Internally we work as a large distributed Open Source project and use tools like email, slack, Google Hangouts, and Skype; \n\n* Familiarity working with a remote team and ability (and desire) to work for a virtual company. Should have a home workstation, and fast Internet access, etc.;\n\n* Must be able to manage your own time and your own projects. Self-motivated employees will fit in well with the rest of the team; and\n\n* It goes without saying; but being friendly and a team player is very important.\n\n\n\n\nCompensation\n\n\n* Salary based on experience;\n\n* We're a competitive, great company to work for; and\n\n* We offer the ability to work remotely, allowing for a balanced live-work situation.\n\n\n\n\n\n\n
