Application Engineer

Imply is behind a data platform that’s used at some of the largest companies in the world to answer complex questions from trillions of events and data points in less than a second. To power our platform, we build and maintain Apache Druid, an open-source real-time analytical database used at thousands of companies. Our customers use Imply to answer questions from “What do tweens in North Carolina who listen to Justin Bieber like to buy“ to “What updates to our infrastructure have caused the CPU to spike when some customers from Europe hit our servers” to “Why are we seeing an increase in traffic going through our backbone from Japan as opposed to being routed internally?”

We are a collaborative and supportive team. We measure our individual success by how well our team does and by how well we push each other to grow professionally. We believe teams should have significant say in what they build and how, and therefore should be responsible for the eventual success of what they’re building, whether it’s in ensuring customers can use it or sales people can sell it or support people can support it. As part of Imply, you’ll get exposure and ownership over how whatever you build fits not just with the rest of the product but with the rest of the org. We're flexible on location, and have a work from home as needed culture.

We’re looking for talented software engineers who are excited about building Web applications that can help reduce the significant complexity involved in using and operating Imply.

You might work on:

  • An interactive web application to enable our users to answer complex questions for vast troves of data interactively
  • Managing, monitoring, and operating large clusters of a distributed system
  • Loading and ingesting large amounts of data from different places with an easy-to-use UI
  • Building use-case-specific applications that previously required proprietary databases and making them available to Imply customers

Required experience and skill:

  • Experience building production web application backends using either Java or NodeJS
  • Solid understanding of how web services work
  • Bachelor’s degree in computer science, engineering, or a related field (or equivalent professional work experience).
  • Positive: DevOps experience with Kubernetes, Docker, AWS, GCP, or Azure.
  • Positive: Experience building distributed systems, databases, or operations management
  • Positive: Experience building Web UIs and SPAs using React, Typescript, Sass
  • Positive: Experience integrating Authentication/Authorization into Web Applications
  • Positive: A history of open-source contributions
