You want to solve really hard problems using cutting-edge web technologies with a team of smart and somewhat goofy people who take a surprising amount of joy from lobby karaoke contests, dance-offs, themed parties, ping pong tournaments and Poker? Then please apply immediately, because Moz is the right place for you!
About the position
At Moz our systems crawl the web, generate an inverse link graph of 10-20% of the Internet, apply lots of interesting algorithms (we use machine learning and advance modeling heuristics) to synthesize this data, and then serve up the petabytes of generated data via a highly scalable API. Oh, and we do all this in the cloud.
This position specifically involves the retrieval of data from the web. We are building a SOA to continuously build/update/maintain/distribute a schedule of crawl-able URLs and the associated distributed crawler network to crawl retrieve cross validate and provide data to the processing back-end. If you think SOA or SETI@Home was cool then this is a job for you!
Our ideal candidate has some experience with one or more of the following: highly scalable distributed systems, SOA, high performance computing search and cloud-based systems. You should be prepared to design systems, write code, and test your applications.
We develop an analytics software product to help people do better marketing. Behind the tool is a sea of Mozzers with a wide array of personalities, experiences, and expertise. We’re a startup with the ability to turn a profit, backed by a passionate community of followers, and with an exciting and hopefully VERY lucrative road ahead.
We’ve worked hard and deliberately to build a cultural roadmap. It’s not just about ping pong games and company parties (though we have those too!)— We’d love you to learn more about it below before you apply:
Moz believes in the TAGFEE tenets. As Mozzers, we strive to exemplify these core values.
