You're a master of high-throughput, low latency, distributed systems. You don't get out of bed for less than a terabyte of data, and you eat a billion queries for breakfast. You're a performance-obsessed data crunching machine, but you also understand when it makes sense to build the perfectly scalable theoretically beautiful solution, and when it makes sense to hack something together that will get us through the next few weeks.
We process billions of data points about millions of consumer transactions every day, but we've barely begun to scratch the surface of this data's true potential. Our challenge is to harness the power of this data to drive a wide variety of sophisticated marketing use cases, all in an ever-growing highly-available high-performance environment.
While this may sound like a specialized position, we're a small startup. In order to move fast enough, we must all be generalists. We don't know what tomorrow will bring, but we know that it will certainly be different from today. We need to build systems for massive scale that can take us into the future, but we must also build with the understanding that we're in the business of evolving very quickly.
