Principal Software Engineer

Last updated 4 days ago
Location:Redmond, Washington
Job Type:Full Time

Do you want to build innovative, industry-leading experiences for connecting to, browsing, querying, and transforming the world’s data regardless of where it resides? Do you look forward to the challenge of building a highly scalable, multi-tenant service that needs to process petabytes of data on a daily basis? Would you enjoy working on an engine for uniform data access and distributed querying over heterogenous data sources?

If you answered yes to any of these questions and are looking to work with a high-powered team intent on changing the way the world works with data, we’d love to chat with you. We have a variety of roles – service, engine, UI, as well as full-stack.

We plan to use example-based interaction and innovative visualization to make data access and transformation even more intuitive for non-technical users.

If the “democratization of data” sounds like a compelling mission, this is the team for you.
