Systems Engineer

You’re an expert in distributed system architecture and API design at scale. You’ve built and supported systems that manage massive amounts of data and work, and you understand the complexities of queues, caches, and counters at scale. You can think about large-scale web systems both in terms of big-picture concerns and nitty-gritty optimizations.

You’ll join a team of experienced and talented engineers, building systems that keep tens of millions of Applets running in real-time in a cloud environment.
