Sumo Logic: Staff Data Engineer

Location: Ideally Austin, TX, Denver, CO or Redwood City, CA  

                          We will, however, also look at 100% remote talent based elsewhere in the USA

What we do:
We are a cloud-native SaaS machine data analytics platform, solving complex monitoring problems for DevOps, SecOps and ITOps teams. Customers love our product because it allows them to easily monitor and optimize their mission critical, large scale applications.
 

Massive Scale:
Our microservices architecture in AWS ingests hundreds of terabytes daily across many geographic regions. Millions of queries a day analyze hundreds of petabytes of data.

At Sumo Logic, we are building a data platform designed to power the analytics and investigations that are common in the Security Operation Centers of large enterprises. It is designed to accept hundreds of billions of events from security-relevant data sources (detection products, network sensors, log shippers, inventory systems) per day. It is cloud-native, with no plan to support an on-premise deployment. It is multi-tenant, and is designed to simultaneously process events from thousands of our customers. And, it is security-focused — it is designed to perform the kinds of stateful analyses that security analysts demand.

We are building this platform the way startups should — with ruthless prioritization, and with a live and demanding customer base. By joining as a Data Engineer, you have the opportunity to make our vision a reality, one feature at a time.


 What You Will be Doing

  • Building, improving, maintaining, and scaling stream processing services.
  • Writing code. Reviewing code. Revising code.
  • Giving feedback on our standards. Holding your team mates to them.
  • Collaborating with teammates on major feature designs. Sometimes, you will own features, sometimes others will.
  • Helping our team grow organically. We value referrals. We value your feedback on candidates.

Who You Are

  • You are a software engineer. (We treat our data systems as software systems, and engineer them accordingly.)
  • You love working with data. (Small data. Big data. All the data.)
  • You are excited to optimize for events per second (not requests per second).
  • You have deep experience working with the technologies we use: Kafka, RocksDB, ElasticSearch, JanusGraph, Postgres, Spark, HBase.
  • You know (or want to write software in) Scala.
  • You love collecting data about your software as much as writing software that collects data. We measure everything. We make data-driven decisions.
  • You are collaborative. Nothing this hard can be accomplished by working alone. We work as a team.
  • Minimum Bachelors in Computer Science or similar technical education.  Masters or PhD preferred!
