Spark Platform Engineer - San Francisco


Spark Platform Engineer - San Francisco San Francisco Posted Jan 20, 2017 - Requisition No. 56588 Apply Now The Spark Platform team is building low-latency, distributed analytics infrastructure for Bloomberg based on Apache Spark. Instead of building dozens of isolated Spark applications for individual problem domains, we are building a platform that makes it easy for teams to plug in their business logic without duplicating common functionality. This includes connecting to various datastores or real-time streams, figuring out a way to serverize Spark transforms or having to re-implement transforms such as currency conversion that are very common in financial analytics. But we can't just use Apache Spark as is. We need to enhance open source Spark to fit our low-latency, high throughput and high availability contexts.
