The software you develop will have fault detection and toleration, automatic system recovery, as well as scaling on the cloud. You will work closely, hand in hand with product managers, machine learning scientists and investigation teams.

Our team is constantly innovating, finding new ways of building massively scalable distributed systems. We set a high bar to build and deliver highly secure, highly available, and highly scalable systems.
