Role Description

Postmates runs one of the largest real-time delivery fleets in the country. Building a software platform that is reliable, scales, and stays agile under demanding product needs is a serious technical challenge. Postmates isn’t just another ad platform or mobile app for delivering static user-generated content: We have real customers paying real money for a real service, all in minutes. Postmates collects a tremendous amount of data about those deliveries. And we view that data to be core to our product roadmap and business processes.

As a Software Engineer on our Data Infrastructure team, you will be part of an early team that builds the event/data transport, collection, and storage layer. You will shape the vision for existing and new systems that will have a critical impact on all our data pipelines, support our Applied Machine Learning team, and help transition all Postmates services to an event-driven model. The systems built in this team will help build data-driven products that match our millions of customers to couriers in near real-time.

What you’ll do: Design, build and operate large scale data infrastructure systems across all environments to store, aggregate and process large amounts of data. Implement various ETL infrastructures and guidelines on how to most effectively build and maintain them for reporting, analytics and product features. Write maintainable and self-documenting code, perform code reviews Build a data platform-as-a-service for internal consumers, operating on open-source technologies on AWS and GCP Serve in the on-call rotation to make sure our data infrastructure is highly available to all internal customers

What you bring: 5+ years of relevant professional experience Experience building on, deploying and maintaining open-source data infrastructure systems (HDFS, Spark, ZooKeeper, Druid, etc.) in production environments Experience with various types of data sources including relational stores such as MySQL, PostgresSQL and NoSQL data stores such as Cassandra or MongoDB and in-memory stores like Redis or Memcache.

Understanding of distributed systems and principles (consistency, durability, resilience, consensus) Experience working with cloud-native infrastructure on the public cloud (we operate on GCP and AWS) Ability to declare and work with infrastructure-as-code (all our infrastructure is defined in Terraform or Deployment manager) Ability to write clean and maintainable code (our codebases are in Python, Go, Erlang, and Java)
