Job Location: Venice, CA
System1 is an organization centered around data and data products. We firmly believe data should inform and guide every quantitative decision process.
We are building exciting new data products and a state-of-the-art data platform aimed at large scale data collection. At the same time, we are building novel approaches to analyze such data and extract knowledge from it in the form of machine learning algorithms. This enables our platform to optimize our users’ experience through product recommendations highly customized to individual preferences and interests.
Our Data Platform team is pragmatic and focused on applying the best tools and development practices. Knowledge essential for this role includes RESTful APIs, relational database technologies like Postgres and MySQL, as well as Amazon AWS technologies like SQS, SNS, Lambda, Kinesis, and Redshift. Of great value is also interest in NoSQL frameworks like Dynamo, MapReduce, and Spark, as tools to address some of the scalability requirements of our platform.
The engineering team as a whole, and the Data Platform team in particular, have an open culture and work in an agile style. The ideal candidate for this role will manifest a passion for distributed data platforms and scalable data architectures. In this role, you will be entrusted with the entire end-to-end engineering processes to manage rich datasets from tens of millions of visitors per month. We are looking for self-motivated, creative thinkers, and for people who are flexible and enjoy working as a team.
