Data Engineer

16093BR

Ramat Gan, Israel

Job Responsibilities

ViaSat builds high-capacity satellite networks across the world, challenging the notion that broadband connectivity only happens on terrestrial networks. We need your help leveraging the latest cloud technologies to enable ViaSat's Commercial Satellite Products group, which is hard at work on our new satellite network designed to handle millions of customers.

The Analytic Tools Group (ATG) uses the latest Big Data technologies (Spark, Kafka, Impala, Map/Reduce) to store, process, and analyze the continuous stream of data our systems produce. We have a unique set of skills to support these goals. As a team member you'll build a breadth of knowledge across knowledge areas including software development, distributed systems architecture, machine learning, and data science.

As a software developer you'll build the systems and tools that the data scientists use to perform their analysis. Working with people of varying skill sets provides a unique collaboration opportunity for those creating the tools (developers, i.e. you) and those analyzing the data (data scientists). You'll interact with each other daily, encouraging innovative solutions to Big Data problems accounting for both the how and the why.

We encourage learning through osmosis, ensuring no one is confined to their specific area of work. Similarly, we value ability and willingness to learn, over experience in a particular area. This isn't to say we don't value expertise and mastery of a subject, rather we recongize the need for evolution of knowledge in our rapidly changing field.

We are looking for individuals who are excited by challenging problems and love to dive into new technologies to solve them.

Requirements

  • Familiarity with any scripting language (Python, Ruby, BASH, etc )

  • Hadoop, map/reduce, Spark, Kafka, Impala, or other big data technologies experience

  • Familiarity with Linux environment and common tools

  • Experience designing highly scaled SAAS systems

  • Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Software Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Math, Physics or related field

Preferences

  • Familiarity with RDBMS technologies (PostgreSQL, MySQL, Oracle, etc.)

  • Understanding of grid/parallel computing architectures

  • SAAS application development capability

  • Web application design (Angular.js, bootstrap, d3, etc)

  • 2 to 3+ years Java, C++, Scala, or other similar development experience

  • Master's Degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Math, Physics or related field
