Dev Team Overview
Scientist.com is a growing services marketplace which helps Scientists the world-over find, initiate, and track service requests. We're at many of the largest pharmaceutical and biotech institutions in the world. We enable the outsourced workflows which increase efficiencies and facilitate compliance. And we're growing.

The core of the Scientist system is a mature and monolithic Ruby on Rails application. We have successfully migrated to Kubernetes on AWS and we run over 400 pods! Everyone on the dev team is empowered to deliver new software daily.

Job Description & Responsibilities
This is where you come in, the web application is in great shape but we need to answer more business questions. We want to provide data and tools to our finance and business analysts based on events from the application. The first big project would be maintaining an ETL pipeline for loading data in to AWS Redshift and supporting our internal customers with Quicksight or Tableau.

You would be collaborating with experienced application owners who know the datas ins and outs, you would not be learning the system in a vacuum. That won't be the end of it, we'd also like to support more developer friendly tools like Jupyter.

You'd also be supporting the Kubernetes cluster, helping to track system health, improving our CI/CD system, internal metrics and logging, performing cluster upgrades, and doing a variety of security ops. If you like Rust, this also a great job for you.

Requirements:
  • 4 year degree, code school, or relevant work experience
  • Working knowledge of Apache Spark. Scala preferred, Python is good too.
  • Excellent communication and presentation skills
  • Self-starter capable of working independently

Nice to haves:
  • Experience with Spark Streaming
  • Experience administering a Spark standalone deployment
  • Experience with Tableau, QuickSight, and/or Kibana
  • Even if you aren't super confident in your Spark experience, another kind of ETL experience is OK. We encourage anyone interested in this position to apply. Please include any relevant code samples, blog posts, stack overflow questions or answers. We want to see what you've written and get a feeling for your communication style.
