As a Backend Software Engineer on the team, you will be responsible for designing and implementing advanced mechanisms to build massive amounts of machine-generated data from heterogeneous systems in real time. You will build asynchronous systems with high levels of concurrency, multithreading, and parallel programming. The Business Enablement engineering team works closely with the Product, Product Management, Provisioning, Finance, Customer Success, etc functions to generate and build business values.
You are a strong software engineer who is passionate about large-scale systems. You care about producing clean, elegant, maintainable, robust, well-tested code; you do this as a member of a team, helping the group come up with a better solution than you would as individuals. Ideally, you have experience with performance, scalability, and reliability issues of 24x7 commercial services.

- 2+ years of industry experience with a proven track record of ownership and delivery if you only have a B.S. degree.
- Object-oriented experience, for example in Java, Scala, Ruby, or C++.
- Understand performance characteristics of commonly used data structures (maps, lists, trees, etc).
- Desire to learn Scala, an up-and-coming JVM language (scala-lang.org).
- Experience in multi-threaded programming and distributed systems is highly desirable.
