THIS JOB HAS EXPIRED Description
Do you know what makes a good API? A really good HTTP based RESTful Platform APIs that work in a Cloud/SaaS environment? Would you like to be a key player in a team that writes those services and wants to deploy them to production in -minutes-, not days, weeks, or months? If so, we?re looking for you. We are looking for talented Sr. Software Engineers who can work within a high power team to make it even better.
A person interested in this job should be technically smart, communicate well in a team, and want to learn more. Here's some sample things that we think about (and that we'll probably discuss with you in a phone screen or interview)...
Coding in Java (including internals!): e.g. is ?final? really final? And why?
Why is it bad to return a HashMap() from an API call? And why?
In REST: When should one use PUT vs. POST? And why?
What are the differences between writing applications for enterprise and writing services for cloud/SaaS: e.g. why is it OK to return an approximation of the number of results when doing a search? And why?
How do you write a function in Java that will set a value and return the previous value? Yeah, that's easy...Now do that without using a temporary variable?
What makes a high power team tick? How can you make a good team really great?
Solid OO, HA, Concurrent coding skills in Java (C++ may be OK if you?re willing to learn Java)
BSCS or equivalent (MSCS preferred)

Knowledge of cloud based services such as Hadoop, Cassandra, memcached
