Engineering at Lattice Engines
Engineering team and processes

We are using a SCRUM methodology with 6 weeks release cycle. We divide the release into 3 sprints of 2 weeks. The first 2 sprints are spent on features development and the last sprint is focused on integration and regression testing. The team encourages everyone to be very hands-on except managers, and have a clearly defined hierarchy of seniority from engineer, to senior engineer, lead engineer, principal engineer and architect. Even architects don't have direct reports and are expected to spend 50% of their time coding and the rest of their time coaching the team and designing solutions. We have a very strong UX and PM team we closely work with on roadmap, release scoping and ongoing execution. Most of the engineers are located in San Mateo, California, but we also have a small remote team in Beijing with mostly QA.

Technical Challenges

The engineering team is working on a variety of interesting challenges from data streaming, to batch data processing, to data science and tensorflows, advanced UI, open APIs strategy, container orchestration and configuration bootstrapping, etc...

Projects you might work on
  • You would get to work on our next generation data streaming architecture to help doing real time model scoring based on users behaviors.

  • You would get to work on our data science pipeline to move our python processing from Hadoop/YARN to Kubernete and Docker containers.

  • You would rearchitect our application to remove dependency from Hadoop HDFS and leverage S3 as a storage layer

  • You would work on data engineering project to integrate and prepare data from multiple customers sources using metadata based configuration

  • You would help building our micro-services stack to enable continuous deployment and services versioning and services isolations

  • You would implement various algorithms defined by the data science team in python, using Anaconda and tensorflow

  • You would redesign our current data processing pipeline to leverage Spark, Airflow and Beam
