Our mission at Imply is to help our customers explore and understand their data, while also giving back to the community. Through contributing to the open-source Druid data store, and developing an analytics application on top of it, we're helping our customers power interactive, up-to-the-second dashboards and data apps on petabytes of data.
As part of this mission we’re tackling the toughest problems in analytics:
Imply’s founders and engineers have deep backgrounds in databases/distributed systems as well as data visualization. Imply’s founders are also founding technical members of projects like Druid and D3.js. We are seeking talented, adventurous engineers to join us as we build the future of data intelligence. You’ll work in a really fast-paced environment with innovative peers and play a pivotal role in capitalizing on a sea-change in the world of Big Data. You’ll build some great products, work with impressive people, and learn a lot along the way.
Why join us?
We've increased quarter on quarter revenue by over 15x in the last 18 months, and recently raised a $13M A round from renowned venture capital firm Andreessen-Horowitz.
Our engineers are a world-class team that includes the creators of Apache Druid, Apache Tajo, & D3.js. Druid adoption is growing rapidly and Imply plays a key role in setting the direction of this popular open source project.
Our data visualization capabilities enable users to create ad-hoc visualizations on massive data sets through a simple point-and-click web UI, or collect important visualizations in interactive dashboards.
Engineering at Imply
Imply’s engineering team consists of a database team that works on Druid (Imply’s open source analytical database) and the application team that builds a powerful application layer to surface the power of the underlying engine. We are a tightly integrated team and have great cross team communication. We work on full stack product changes from the database to the application. We review each others code and have continuous integration set-up.
We design our product to handle massive amounts of data (e.g. millions of events per second) and to respond to queries interactively (sub-second) with constant uptime.
For front end engineers, you can work with one of the originators of D3.js on Pivot, our exploratory visualization interface that allows for fast drill downs of very large data sets through simple drag-and-drop interactions. With Pivot you can create data cubes, which focus on arbitrary drill downs for a single visualization, or dashboards, which are collections of visualizations for rapidly distilling information. Check out our Pivot docs here: https://docs.imply.io/on-premise/query-data/visualize
For back end database and distributed systems engineers, you can work on Imply's open source core, Druid, which is now an Apache project. Druid is an open source columnar data store designed for OLAP queries on very large amounts of event data. Imply was founded by members of the original Druid development team, and has more committers on the project than any other organization. More information about Druid is available here: http://druid.io/druid.html. If you'd like to see how some organizations are using Druid, check here: http://druid.io/druid-powered.html
For all engineers, Imply offers its products in the cloud as well as for on-premise installations. So there are are great opportunities to work on Imply Cloud, a managed service for AWS that enables our customers to create and manage Imply clusters in their own AWS VPC. Imply Cloud includes Pivot and Druid, plus additional management features and a performance monitoring solution for Imply clusters called Clarity.
