The Software Engineer will join Devo's Core Engine team, which plays an essential role in the way our system handles massive amounts of data. The Core Engine team is actively engaged in improving our platform data collection and query optimization capacities, as well as in the stream processing ones. The ideal candidate will have experience programming with languages like Java, Node.JS, Kotlin or Scala, and will also count on a solid knowledge of algorithm and data structure theories.

Our platform ingests TBs of data per day and evaluates 100.000 events per second and core, running on thousands of cores. We are looking for both junior and senior profiles.

The role of this profile will be to develop new features of the Devo engines (data persistence, retrieval and processing/analysis), and to maintain them as well. Participate in all the development phases: conception, programming, testing, integration, etc.

  • Experience developing software other than web or accounting software. Examples can be engineering tools, compilers, stream processing or database systems.
  • Experience working on Unix/Linux environments.
  • Good knowledge of data structures and algorithms.
  • Ability to solve maths and algorithms problems.
  • Enjoy learning and problem solving.

Desired - General

  • Good knowledge of two or more programming languages, preferably Java and JavaScript.
  • Experience in developing scalable systems.
  • Experience with multithreading programming.B.S. (or superior) degree in Computer Science, Mathematics, or a related technical field of study.

Desired - Retrieval

  • Experience with database internals. Ideally creating or extending databases.

  • Knowledge of JVM internals. Almost all of our code runs on the JVM and some parts must be high efficient JVM (in the order of microseconds).
  • Experience with modern concurrency patterns. You know it is not a good idea to create thousands of threads and some models that avoid that (coroutines, actors, etc). PhD will be especially valued.

Desired - Stream processing (Alerts & Correlations)

  • Knowledge of data streaming platforms (Apache Flink, Kafka).
  • Experience with Groovy.
  • Experience with Spring.
