We like to move fast and work on a large scale. We’re looking for a Hadoop Hero who has experience building Hadoop clusters from scratch to keep our cluster in perfect shape and save us from getting crushed under the weight of big data. You will maintain and develop our Cloudera Hadoop cluster, set up a backup cluster and keep them in sync. You will also consult with our Business Intelligence team regarding the setting up and maintenance of reliable data pipelines. With your hawk-like vision, you’ll monitor our Cloudera CDH installation, fine tuning it to maximize performance. Lightning-quick reflexes and agility will also be required as you may get caught in Nerf gun wars that rage across the office.

The ideal candidate:

  • Has 2-3 years’ experience working with big data frameworks, preferably Hadoop. In this time they will have worked with Hive, Oozie and Impala.

  • Is comfortable using ZooKeeper.
  • Is proficient in JVM (Java Virtual Machine) tuning.
  • Is either an EU citizen or holds an IT-related bacherlor's degree.* If you are an EU citizen, no degree is necessary as long as you're a tech-head and you can show us proof of your passion.
  • Wants to work with hundreds of terabytes of data.
  • Can start as soon as possible.
