Description

Do you enjoy building processing pipelines for massive amounts of data? Adaptable time-series databases? Machine learning? Streaming analytics pipelines? We’ve got a lot of opportunities for you to leave your mark.

A Backend Developer at Meshify will have the opportunity to work on a myriad of projects and applications. We have just finished 1.0 of our platform rewrite, entitled Carbon. It is a full scale redesign and rewrite of our legacy platform. We migrated from an old .NET API server to Go, from MySQL to ScyllaDB (Cassandra) for time-series data, and from MySQL to Postgres for relational data. It includes a query and analytics engine, highly customizable rules and notifications engine, and even custom javascript code triggered by messages in the data pipeline (Lambda Engine). Future projects will include a Hardware Identity Server providing identity and security to our hardware, simple integration with big data tooling, improved GPS rule processing, integration with common ticketing systems like Pager Duty, and more.
