    VividCortex is looking for an experienced Data Engineer to architect and build our next-generation internal data platform for large scale data processing. You are at the intersection of data, engineering, and product, and run the strategy and tactics of how we store and process massive amounts of performance metrics and other data we measure from our customers' database servers.

    Our platform is written in Go and hosted on the AWS cloud. It uses Kafka, Redis, and MySQL for data storage and analysis. We are a DevOps organization building a 12-factor microservices application; we practice small, fast cycles of rapid improvement and full exposure to the entire infrastructure, but we don't take anything to extremes.

    The position offers excellent benefits, a competitive base salary, and the opportunity for equity. Diversity is important to us, and we welcome and encourage applicants from all walks of life and all backgrounds.


    • Work with others to define, and propose for approval, a modern data platform design strategy and matching architecture and technology choices to support it, with the goals of providing a highly scalable, economical, observable, and operable data platform for storing and processing very large amounts of data within tight performance tolerances.

    • Perform high-level strategy and hands-on infrastructure development for the VividCortex data platform, developing and deploying new data management services both in our existing data center infrastructure, and in AWS.

    • Measure and improve the code and system performance and availability as it runs in production.

    • Support product management in prioritizing and coordinating work on changes to our data platform, and serve as a lead on  user-focused technical requirements and analysis of the platform.

    • Help provide customer support, and you'll pitch in with other departments, such as Sales, as needed.

    • Rotate through on-call duty.

    • Understand and enact our security posture and practices.

    • Continually seek to understand and improve performance, reliability, resilience, scalability, and automation. Our goal is that systems should scale linearly with our customer growth, and the effort of maintaining the systems should scale sub-linearly.

    • Contribute to a culture of blameless learning, responsibility, and accountability.

    • Manage your workload, collaborating and working independently as needed, keeping management appropriately informed of progress and issues.

    Preferred Qualifications:

    • Experience building systems for both structured and unstructured data.

    • AWS infrastructure development experience.

    • Mastery of relational database technologies such as MySQL.
