Engineering at Esgyn

Engineering team and processes

The engineering team operates under a CICD process, with two branches, one for the current release and one for the next one. Pull Requests on Git Hub Enterprise are used for code reviews. We build and run regression testing every nights. We operate under Agile methodology to adapt to the different priorities and requests from Customers. Design, reviews, prioritization are performed through daily ad-hoc meetings. The entire team syncs up once a week.

Technical Challenges

Our database can run any kind of workloads at scale on hundreds of nodes in parallel on very large data set . We need to guarantee performance, reliability and availability while running very high concurrency ingest into the tables and running analytics in almost real-time on the data coming in. We use two different storage engines in parallel, HBase for transactions, IoT, fast ingestion and ORC or Parquet for analytics , complex queries and large scans.

Projects you might work on
  • For Core Banking projects, we need to provide for the first time on HBase some business critical transactions capabilities at scale. We need to deliver some critical capabilities in terms of performance, up time, high-availability (active / passive), backup and restore through our SQL engine on top of our Hadoop storage engine.
