Job Type:Full Time

We are the Azure Data teams part of the C+E Azure organization. Azure Data teams present interesting challenges in technologies such as big-data, cloud, storage and open-source. We build reliable, highly scalable and highly performing distributed systems for data analytics on Azure. We work with various open-source technologies like Apache Spark, Apache Hadoop, Apache Yarn, etc., and make contributions to these technologies. We are creating a planetary scale analytics/storage/indexing system, which can scale to Exabyte of data (yes, that’s 18+ digits!). This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to be part of a very agile team, take on hard distributed system problems and ship high impact features at a rapid pace. Our code runs on hundreds of thousands of machines!

As an engineer, you have an opportunity to work on hard problems related to Big Data, apply innovative algorithms for achieving query acceleration and building runtimes that can deal with data at scale. Are you ready to disassemble a modern analytic engine, figure out what every little bit does, and then put it back together into something quite a bit more awesome than the original? We need collaborative developers who can think big, deliver on those big challenges, and along the way, change the world. We are looking for engineers to build them from the ground up. Come join us on the Azure Data team!
