Within the Big Data environment, you have a deep understanding of the complex nature of Hadoop. You feel as comfortable building simple data flows as you do digging into Hadoop source code to understand the subtle and obscure problems that can arise in this environment. You work with people, technical and non-technical alike, to understand their Big Data needs and to help them understand what they're really trying to achieve. You're a company resource, providing best practices, guidelines, and feedback on internal tools working with Hadoop. You have your finger on the pulse of the cluster, understanding when it’s not working right and diving in to diagnose the problem before it becomes systemic.
You have a cool head under pressure. When a technical fire occurs, you understand that putting it out should always avoid collateral damage. When you cause a fire (as everyone inevitably does), you take responsibility for it and work with the team to figure out the right way to put that fire out. You believe blaming is a waste of time: when something goes wrong, you figure out why it happened and how to prevent it from happening again in the future. Better yet, you look for how things went right in the first place and improve upon those.
As a member of this team, you seek out feedback on your designs and ideas and provide the same to others. You constantly ask 'What am I missing?' and 'How will this NOT work?' You don't shy away from what you don't know; you readily admit that you don't know everything, and use every resource available to learn what you need to know.
This position is closed and is no longer accepting applications.
To apply, send an email to Kirk Blizzard, Indeed's Senior Technical Recruiter, at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject "Hadoop Operations Engineer" describing how you'd be a good fit for (the more specific the better) and attaching a resume.
