At Falkon, we are building a new system of intelligence that empowers professionals to define, understand and improve metrics that really matter.
We are product, engineering and research veterans from Microsoft, Amazon, Dropbox, Amperity and Zulily. Having lived through years of bad metrics meetings and fire-drills, we've discovered a revolutionary way to combine machine learning and human intuition to empower professionals to define, understand and improve metrics that really matter.
We are looking for a results-oriented backend engineer who can design, develop and scale the internal systems that power Falkon's core product from scratch. This includes building programmable data ingestion and processing pipelines that are self-serve for every tenant, building a horizontally scalable SQL-compatible data store that decouples compute and storage yet provides fast interactive query capability, and integrating frameworks like Apache Spark so we can distribute our analytical workloads across hundreds of machines. If you've been part of a team that has built a database or an EDW and are now itching to deploy all your learnings to build a brand new system, this is the perfect place for you.
Our backend infrastructure is extremely modern and fully containerized on top of Kubernetes. We're big fans of ELT and use tools like DBT and Airflow to power our data pipelines.
