Spark Solution Architect / Developer - US Citizen
This is a very cool company - become a Spark Analytics expert, work with the best and brightest, make a lot of money, and get equity that is expected to be very valuable in a short amount of time. Our client is a product and services firm, pre-IPO, that specializes in data science and analytics for the federal government and commercial market. They are seeking several Spark Developers / Solutions Architects to join their Field Engineering team.
The work is typically a 50/50 split between:
- development, building prototypes and proofs-of-concept and doing ETL on customer data, using technologies including Databricks (Apache Spark platform), Hadoop, AWS, Azure, and pretty much anything else you can think of that could be used in cloud-based analytics
- working with customers to understand their requirements, present your prototypes and proofs-of-concept, and help them figure out the best way of building an analytic solution that meets their needs
The key skills you need coming in the door are development (in either Java, Python, or Scala - whichever you prefer) as well as experience working with Spark in a production environment. You’ll also need customer-facing experience to excel here. SQL and ETL experience is a huge plus. Salary will be great, plus bonus and equity (which can lead to substantial additional compensation), full benefits plan, etc.
Work locations will be at one or more customer sites in the DC metro area. Day trips to customer sites would be expected and up to 20% travel with overnight stays. In some cases, part of the work can be done remotely using the company’s own clusters.
Due to the nature of some of our client's federal customers, US citizenship is required.
