As a data engineer at Nosto, you’ll build out our infrastructure for serving billions of recommendations, generating insights used by thousands of retailers and some of the best brands over the globe.

What You'll Be Doing
Having a say: You’ll participate in problem definition and solution with a diverse group of engineers.
Analyse the data: Use IPython Notebooks, R-Studio, Julia (or a tool of your choice) to analyse, measure, benchmark and improve our data pipelines and storage subsystems. You’ll distill data into meaningful KPIs for Nosto and our customers and improve our tooling and practices around controlled experiments.
Proper engineering: Writing Java/Scala alongside our Spark based processing pipeline for infrastructure that is scalable, performant, well-tested, and easy to maintain.
Technical heavy lifting: You’ll architect and implement major components of an ambitious technical roadmap, evaluating and implementing technologies like Storm, Kafka, Spark SQL.
Let's Talk If
You’ve shipped software: You have production experience with a nice bit of our stack: Scala, Spark, EMR, Python, ElasticSearch, Cassandra, Redis, etc. and for the parts you don’t, you’re super excited to learn.
You care about code: You take pride in engineering, and have a deep understanding of how to process terabytes of data through highly performant pipelines.
You like moving quickly: We build and ship code to production multiple times a day (if you’re lucky enough to find a free node on our Jenkins cluster).
Why You’ll Love Working at Nosto
You’re involved: Every engineer here is excited to understand what problem they’re solving, why they’re solving it and who they’re solving it for, and collaborates with everyone to make that happen.
Values-driven culture: You’d be walking into a welcoming and diverse environment that is built around action, optimism, purpose and transparency. We have a fun, supportive culture, and firmly believe in what we’re doing.
Marry the problem, not the solution: We’re constantly re-evaluating our technical infrastructure to deliver faster, better, and more reliable software. You will be working with real and live data and your work will have direct affect to millions of users.
