Successful search analytics requires an understanding of two things: how a search engine algorithm works and the data set that algorithm is applied to. The Index Team at Moz focuses on this second part and the data set we work with is an index of the internet itself. “Big data” is a popular buzzword these days but at Moz we really mean it! The index we create forms the backbone of Moz Pro which is used by over 20,000 business ranging from mom and pop stores to Fortune 500 titans.
Our offices are in Seattle, WA and Vancouver, BC but we are open to having someone work remote from anywhere in the US or Canada.
What you will do:
- Use hundreds of computers to process petabytes of data and index 40 trillion records daily.
- Design abstractions for data processing at scale.
- Employ machine learning to create a rich index of the web.
- Work on a 4 person team which has a daily impact on the success of the company.
Experience we want to see:
- Several years of experience working on products which apply complex algorithms to solve large scale data problems. While we're open to consider people early into their careers and don't consider years of experience to be a reliable indicator of quality we also want to be clear that this is not an entry level role for some straight out of a university.
- Strong algorithm skills including a deep appreciation for the complexity of large scale algorithms and Big O notation.
- Experience in C++, AWS and Linux or a demonstrated ability with comparable technologies and an ability to adapt quickly to new environments.
- A solid understanding of computer science fundamentals, not just an ability to write code.
- We would like to see experience working with systems which routinely handle petabyte sized datasets.
- Solid communication skills - your resume should show not just your technical skills but should also make it clear how your work contributed to the success of the organization's goals.
