Apache Spark Engineer - Platform - Senior

San Francisco, CA 94015

Post Date: 01/10/2018 Job ID: 9884 Category: Java, Opportunistic

The Spark Platform team is building low-latency, distributed analytics infrastructure for Bloomberg based on Apache Spark.

Instead of building dozens of isolated Spark applications for individual problem domains, we are building a platform that makes it easy for teams to plug in their business logic without duplicating common functionality. This includes connecting to various datastores or real-time streams, figuring out a way to serverize Spark transforms or having to re-implement transforms such as currency conversion that are very common in financial analytics. But we can' t just use Apache Spark as is. We need to enhance open source Spark to fit our low-latency, high throughput and high availability contexts. That' s where you come in.

As part of our team, you' ll collaborate with a number of the core Spark contributors to co-design and co-develop enhancements to Spark in areas ranging from Performance to HA.
We' ll trust you to:
  •   Contribute to the development of the Bloomberg Spark Platform
  •   Interact with application teams to understand their specific requirements and drive the next set of features for the Spark Platform
  •   Meet with key players in the open source community to motivate necessary development efforts
  •   Contribute code to the Apache Spark community in areas ranging from Machine Learning to Spark HA
You' ll need to have:
  •   Strong programming proficiency in Java and Scala (a minimum of two years)
  •   An expert-level understanding of Apache Spark - your work will involve modifying its internals
We' d love to see:
  •   Experience with MLlib
  •   Open source contributions of any sort
  •   Professional experience developing analytics infrastructure

If this sounds like you, submit an application and watch our talk at Spark Summit East to learn more about Bloomberg' s Spark Platform (https://spark-summit.org/east-2016/events/spark-at-bloomberg/).
