Promoted is hiring a staff data engineer, ideally with experience in social media, e-commerce, and ads recommendations at large US tech companies. We especially want to hire people with deep expertise in Apache Flink. While we are an “ML” company, we know from combined decades of experience that the real work is done in the data metrics and measurement systems, and you will lead the technical vision of our most critical systems. Today, we process about 1TB/day of user event data, we demand read-after-write latencies in seconds, and we handle interesting data challenges like retractions, inferred references, and real-time joining large records at scale.
Ideal candidates will have worked with implementing and operating streaming data systems on data infrastructure teams at large, well-known tech companies.
Promoted optimizes marketplace search and promotes the best listings at the top to increase revenue. We’re the top choice of A16Z Top 100 Marketplaces, where we better match millions of buyers and sellers to make billions in sales. Our investors include Y Combinator and Y Combinator Continuity. We’re all ex-Facebook and Google ads engineers, and we’ve built this before together.
