The Infrastructure Engineering team is 20 engineers who develop and run our data analytics platform. This platform, built at Mixpanel, serves all of our analytic and machine learning products. Our goal is to support complex queries over terabytes of data and hundreds of servers at interactive speeds. Our key focus areas are high scalability, high reliability, low latency, and low cost.
We collaborate. We try to have at least two people work together on every project. It’s more fun and yields better results.
We value learning, from each other and by building prototypes and collecting data to challenge our assumptions. Sometimes we try things that fail, and that’s okay. We expect to learn something new every day.
There is no job too big or too small for anyone, and we’re always happy to lend a hand to one another.
We care about quality. We do very thorough code reviews, and try our best to build code that is simple, clear and reliable.
We troubleshoot our systems and strive to make them better. When something does go wrong, we focus on the root cause and future prevention, not assigning blame.
Optimizing our query engine and data format to support faster queries over larger data sets.
Developing the query language (and engine) capable of executing complex multi-phase query plans with subsecond response times.
Building the data ingestion and processing pipeline that durably stores 200k records per second and terabytes of data per day.
Nice to have
Experience in database internals, distributed systems, or high-performance C/C++ programming.
Experience with C/C++, Go, or Python.
