What will you do as a Big Data Machine Learning Software Engineer?

  • Implement Machine Learning solutions that live on Big Data systems, with input and guidance from Data Scientists and the algorithms they develop to effect Machine Learning
  • Work as part of a Scrum team to analyze requirements, scope, estimate, implement, and test changes to meet these requirements in a Big Data system
  • Debug existing source code, analyze logs and fix bugs as needed, using Python as the code for both back end and user interface
  • Work independently and collaboratively as needed
  • Take ownership of assigned tasks and finish in a timely manner
  • Continuously learn and improve skills
  • Apply significant attention to detail to ensure all tasks are carried out to the highest standard
  • Show evidence as a fast learner, as many of the concepts we follow do not exist elsewhere


  • If you are under-skilled in some of the other requirements below, evidence of your ability to learn quickly will be seriously considered. Example of technology needed to learn quickly is customization/extension of ElasticSearch-Logstash-Kibana (ELK) instances
  • 5+ years of software development experience in Agile environment
  • 5+ years of coding and development experience using Python 2/3, preferably using OO approach
  • 1-2 years of Big Data deployment, monitoring and troubleshooting of microservices, and interactions with the following Big Data concepts:
  • Exposure and experience using/creating Extract/Transform/Load workflows
  • Exposure and use of Kafka or other message queues
  • Exposure and use of Hive/Hadoop/Impala and Big Data data storage including NOSQL solutions
  • Big Data configuration and monitoring using a number of technologies
  • Experience working in a multi-threaded environment
  • Experience working with SQL databases and/or Big Data datastores (HDFS, etc.)
  • Exposure to web-based application development – optimally Dash (with Python), React or NodeJS/Angular to facilitate workflows and graphic visualization
  • Working knowledge of GIT, JIRA or similar systems for maintaining and tracking code changes
  • Experience with Scrum/Agile

Extra Spice:

  • Strong communication and problem-solving skills – possess the ability to translate business requirements into application code
  • Ability to take ownership of the complete software development cycle from requirements gathering to design to implementation
  • Team player who will work in a collaborative environment with users and the engineering team
  • Passionate about well-designed software that is modifiable, efficient, reliable and meets coding standards
  • Experience customizing/extending ElasticSearch-Logstash-Kibana (ELK) instances
