Software Engineer: Hadoop Etsy
Etsy is looking for experienced Hadoop engineers to join our data infrastructure team. You should love big data and cluster computing, especially in the context of solving large-scale, real-world problems that make Etsy more awesome.
About the Engineering Team
The technical staff at Etsy believes that code is craft, good software and systems designs are works of art, and that the work we do is part of larger creative culture represented by the hundreds of thousands of inspired makers who make Etsy such a wondrous marketplace. We believe that small, empowered, self-motivated teams can do big things. We also believe in the right tool for the job, not language-as-religion. Our current systems run PHP, Java, Python, Ruby, Solr/Lucene, Postgres, MySQL, and more. Check out our Engineering blog: http://codeascraft.etsy.com/
