We are building an open-source, enterprise-class stream data platform for real-time data and stream processing centered around Kafka. We believe that the future of enterprise applications will be built atop a streaming platform, and we want to put it at the heart of every company.

      • Experience building and operating large-scale systems

      • A self starter with the ability to work effectively in teams
      • Proficiency in Java or C/ C++
      • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or similar field or equivalent

What gives you an edge:

    • Experience in open-source development
    • Experience using Apache Kafka is a big plus
    • Ability to work with remote teams
    • Interest in evangelism (giving talks at tech conferences, writing blog posts evangelizing Kafka)
    • Proficiency in Scala
