The Role:

Want to work with bleeding-edge data processing technologies utilizing the JVM to build a fast, flexible, and extensible Big Data pipeline? Do you love having the freedom and autonomy to use the languages and tools that you want to do so? Do you want to work on a team that is open, transparent, and agile? Do you want to get experience working with massive amounts of social media advertising data? Then good news, Unified is looking for a Senior Backend Engineer to help building our new data pipeline! We integrate with most social media advertising APIs to build a pipeline to deliver high powered analytics to our clients.

What you’ll do:

  • Be a valued team member who has a large voice in determining the architecture of the system
  • Design and implement performant, scalable, and distributed data processing services

Who you are:

Youre someone who enjoys working closely with others in a team-based environment. Youre someone that has seen multiple code bases and wants to contribute from day one. You are a self-starter and passionate about creating robust, solid, and flexible software. Youd rather be working on the backend of the code and contributing to the core services that make our Platform run.
