These techniques allow us to provide a high degree of accuracy in getting the right content to the right customer - and driving significant increases in our business objectives as a result.

They are familiar with machine learning, service-oriented architectures, and distributed data and services.

  • Programming experience with at least one modern language such as Java, C++, or C# including object-oriented design
  • 1+ years of experience contributing to the architecture and design (architecture, design patterns, reliability and scaling) of new and current systems.
  • 2+ years of non-internship professional software development experience
  • Bachelors or Master's Degree in Computer Science or related field.
  • Computer Science fundamentals in object-oriented design and data structures, algorithm design, problem solving, and complexity analysis
  • Ability to take a project from scoping through launch
  • Experience building large-scale multi-tiered distributed systems.
  • Knowledge of professional software development lifecycle engineering practices including coding standards, code review practices, source control management, build processes, testing, and operations
  • Experience communicating with users, technical teams, and management to collect requirements, describe software product features, and review technical designs.
  • Experience with large data sets (>1TB), Spark, and MapReduce a strong plus.
  • Experience supporting a high volume, low-latency (>100K requests per second, <100ms latency) web service a strong plus.
  • Advanced degree in Computer Science with a strong Mathematical background
