As a Big Data Engineer at 9GAG you will help evaluate and build our data platform to sift and process terabytes of behavioral, textual, visual and unstructured data from billions of interactions with our global user base. As a member of the data team, you’ll have immense impact - literally shaping the data with which the company makes innumerable business decisions.

We’re looking for a detailed oriented Big Data Engineer who understands the value and impact of good data. You’ll help shape the entire lifecycle of data: from building robust scalable data pipelines in our backend, building dashboards to enable better decision making, to helping to implement a machine learning model serving real time personalized recommendations to our tens of million of users.

Building 9GAG’s data infrastructure is an enormous challenge. You’ll have to balance the need to move fast today while continuing to build for tomorrow. You understand the tradeoffs between different open source Big Data technologies and aren’t afraid to build it yourself if needed.
