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. 


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:

  • A solid understanding of computer science fundamentals, not just an ability to write code. 
  • Ideally, recent experience in C++, AWS and Linux or a demonstrated ability with comparable technologies and an ability to adapt quickly to new environments. 
  • Ideally, you have applied complex algorithms to solve large scale data problems. 
  • 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.
