About the team:

Big Data Compute team is at the forefront of cloud architecture and big data analytics. Our systems ingest hundreds of billion events daily and the volume is growing rapidly as we expand globally. The data we collect is curated into a petabyte scale warehouse to serve our Data Science and Engineering as well as Machine Learning teams in making decisions across every aspect of our business. To query this data, we maintain a world-class big data platform. This represents a unique opportunity to work with the open source community and build out the best analytics platform in the cloud for our global offering.

In this role, you will be contributing to Netflix's industry leading big data processing engines and working with other companies invested in big data to build out open source big data solutions.

Specifically, you will:
• Develop features for the big data query engines Presto/TrinoDb and table format Iceberg
• Contribute to open source projects and advance the state of big data
• Be a liaison to help data scientists for building/diagnosing big data queries

This is your dream job if you:
• Are passionate about building out and improving TrinoDb and Iceberg to tailor it to Netflix use cases to process petabytes of data,
• Seek out opportunities to engage and contribute to the open source community
• Work well in a cross-functional environment and excel in communicating with your peers
• Thrive on working in a fast-paced, evolving, growing, dynamic environment
• Have a BS/MS/PhD in Computer Science or related field and 10+ years experience in a role similar to this
