Pepperdata - Santa Clara, CA

Pepperdata’s founding team has been working with Big Data long before it was Big Data. At companies like Yahoo, Google, Microsoft, and Inktomi, we’ve seen (from the inside) the huge impact that comes from quickly and reliably making use of massive amounts of data. We solve really hard problems, and we move fast, but we engineer things the right way (we do code reviews of the unit tests of our integration test system).

Responsibilities and Deliverables

  • Help build high scalable distributed performance management solutions to dynamically tune customer clusters and collect metric data.

  • Integrate with different distributed streaming and execution engines (i.e. Kafka, Spark, Tez, Impala, MapReduce, etc.) to collect telemetry data.

  • Use the collected metrics and telemetry data to provide automated insights and recommendations to customers/developers.

  • Work closely with a focused development team to quickly iterate on new solutions.

Skills, Abilities, and Knowledge

  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or related Engineering discipline.

  • Comfortable working in a fast-paced and highly collaborative work environment

  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills and the ability to generate and communicate meaningful development metrics

  • Excellent analytical, problem-solving, troubleshooting and decision-making skills

  • Understanding of Hadoop and Kubernetes components and ecosystems

  • Hands-on experience with Cloud Managed Hadoop and Kubernetes services including AWS EMR/EKS and Google Dataproc/GKE

  • Solid understanding of system design, including the operational design trade-offs

  • Experience developing in Java required.

  • Experience with Linux commands and scripting languages a plus.

  • Demonstrated ability to come up to speed on new software stacks required.

  • Experience optimizing system performance, ideally in Linux.

  • Experience developing large-scale, data-heavy distributed systems a plus.

  • Knowledge of Spark and Kafka a plus.

Benefits of working at Pepperdata

  • Our engineering team has a median of over fifteen years of experience building at web scale with enterprise quality. Our sales team has decades of experience selling enterprise data software.

  • Transparency and open, respectful technical discussions We don’t hide or dilute information. We’re deeply invested in having the entire team understand the ins and outs of our business and the rapidly evolving market. We know that a room full of very smart people has no place for even one large ego.

  • Customer focus as we grow, we remain humbled by the fact that some of the world’s leading companies run their businesses on our software.

  • Competitive salary and a meaningful stake in the company

  • Medical, dental, and vision plans, 401(k) plan, and other big company benefits

  • Do what’s right” time-off policy
