Projects you might work on
  • Over ten million people use the Grammarly Chrome extension. Our Firefox, Safari and Edge extensions are incredibly popular, too. These extensions may look easy on the outside because they are low profile and easy to use. But it is actually a complex product supported by a full team of engineers. We have been developing and perfecting it for 6 years. Along the way we have learned a thing or two that we’d like to share. This article (https://tech.grammarly.com/blog/building-browser-extensions-at-scale) is intended to be an overview of our learnings and best practices on this project.

  • Grammarly, like most growing companies, strives to make data-driven decisions. That means that we need a reliable way to collect, analyze, and query data about our users. We started out using third-party tools like Mixpanel to handle our analytics needs, but soon our needs surpassed the capabilities of those tools. For example, we wanted to control the pre-aggregation and enrichment of data, to generate reports that were more customized, and to have higher confidence in the accuracy of data. So we developed our own in-house analytics engine and application on top of Apache Spark.
