Our partner is a Software Engineering company ‘born’ in 2010. Their organizational culture revolves around the idea of ‘partner sourcing’, which means helping high potential start-up projects grow, become self-sustaining companies and conquer the market with their innovative ideas. This means they get to work on complex projects with the latest stable technologies, while building lasting relationships between their team and their partners around the world. They recently joined the efforts in building Firebolt, one of the fastest Saas solution products in the big data space. While they’re gearing up to officially launch Firebolt, they are working closely with some of the world’s largest data driven companies on solving their “impossible data challenges”.
Want to help us bring our speed and efficiency to big-data analytic on the cloud?
Firebolt delivers extreme speed and elasticity at any scale solving your impossible data challenges.
Firebolt was built with three principles in-mide
- Firebolt uniquely combines a wide range of technologies to deliver query performance that is unprecedented at terabyte and petabyte scales:
- Columnar data structure for faster analytics workloads
- Vectorized processing and SIMD utilization for massive throughput at the CPU level
- Just-in-time query compilation using LLVM for hardware optimized query plans
- Continuously aggregated indexing for whopping data ingestion speeds and near instant data updates
Firebolt was built from the ground up with huge datasets in mind. Our unique technology combines the best of high-performance database architecture with the infinite scale of the data lake, guaranteeing unparalleled performance at any scale. Clusters of compute nodes use Massive Parallel Processing (MPP) to parallelize queries across nodes, through which fast performance can be maintained as data grows.
Firebolt is built on a decoupled storage & compute architecture, with native support for quick up/down scaling of compute resources per warehouse, database and query. Such granular control over resources and elasticity allows you to easily assign as many resources as needed only when you really need them, while avoiding overpaying for unused resources.
About our Tech stack:
- Firebolt is composed of several open-source projects and relies on a unique IP that boosts data analytics and enables full scalability and decauling compute from storage.
- Our SQL core teams work with C++.
- Our backend teams work with Go, Python, Rust in order to create microservices exposing REST APIs and GraphQL interface.
- We are using both CockroachDB and FoundationDB as application data storage.
- Our frontend teams work with TypeScript, React, Redux + Apollo.
- CI/CD is handled by a combination of CircleCI and CodeDeploy to test and deploy code to production.
- The infrastructure is managed as code with Terraform and services are monitored using Prometheus and Grafana.
About the job to be done:
- Join our backend team as a FoundationDB expert, owning the full cluster lifecycle of all of our FoundationDB based microservices.
- Enable full utilization of FoundationDB capabilities at scale.
- Work with Kubernetes deployments.
- Establish robust reliability engineering to support these clusters, managing aspects like monitoring, chaos testing, alerting, on-call rotations, internal best-practices education, and capacity forecasting.
- BS/Master degree in Computer Science, Engineering, or a related field.
- Broad experience with DevOps practices such as CI/CD and Infrastructure as code
- Experience with large Cloud deployments on any of AWS, GCP, or Azure.
- Familiar with Golang, C++, or other programming languages.
- 2+ years of direct FoundationDB operational experience
- Familiarity and experience with our tech stack is beneficial.
