Backend Developer - Data Platform Team

Aller Media has made tremendous progress in transforming itself into a data-driven company. We are now looking for a developer to join the Data Platform team.

The Team

The Data Platform team is responsible for developing systems for collecting, processing, and utilizing data within the company. The team has built a world-leading personalization and automation system, which provides personalized control over the look and feel of Aller’s sites in real time.

The Position

In this role, you will work on the Data Platform team on all things related to data. You will develop features for the personalization and automation system, and hopefully come up with new ideas for how we can use the system to create value. You will also work on data collection and processing to ensure that our systems have access to accurate real-time data.

The system is composed of microservices written in Go, deployed to Google Kubernetes Engine. We use numerous other Google hosted services, including PubSub, Bigtable, BigQuery, and Memorystore (Redis). In addition, we use Varnish as a caching layer.

Preferred Qualifications

We strongly believe that excellent developers come from a variety of different backgrounds. As a guide, we are looking for someone with:

  • Programming experience, preferably in Go, Rust, Java, C, or similar.

  • Experience working with any of the technologies that we use (Kubernetes, PubSub, Bigtable, BigQuery, Varnish).

  • Data analysis skills (SQL, R, Pandas, etc.)

  • Experience with high-throughput distributed systems.

However, this list is not intended to discourage applications. We are open to hearing from anyone who believes they have something valuable to offer in this role.

The ideal candidate is someone who can take an idea and make it happen. That often involves more than just technical skill, and we are looking for someone who thrives in that type of environment.
