About Svitla:

Svitla Systems is a proven custom software development company and testing provider. We deliver unparalleled value to our clients, who rely on our expertise in managed team extension and build-to-order software applications.

Our main office is in the heart of Silicon Valley - with sales and development offices throughout the US, Mexico, and Europe (Ukraine, Montenegro, and Germany).

Our mission is to build a business that is not only profitable but also contributes to the well-being of our employees and their families, improves our communities, and makes a lasting difference in the world.

Responsibilities:

  • Implementation and maintenance of distributed systems that support growing use of big data / streaming data in AI-assisted insights reporting and action automation products.
  • Evaluate new technologies and build prototypes for continuous improvements in data infrastructure and engineering.
  • Design and maintain core critical systems and services.
  • Gather requirements and work cross functionally across internal teams.
  • Make recommendations and implement changes to improve system performance.
  • Creating a great developer experience by designing robust developer, test environments and workflow automation.

Requirements:

  • Master of Python AND JavaScript (NodeJS minimum, browser-side stacks a plus).
  • Demonstrable experience or profound interest in Go, JVM-based variants like Clojure, Scala, or some functional language you secretly hold dear to your heart.
  • Building of distributed, micro-service-based systems.
  • Clear signs of understanding and building request-response vs reactive distributed systems.
  • Strong experience with AWS queue and messaging services (Kinesis, SQS, SNS), data stores (Redshift, DynamoDB, RDS (PostgreSQL preferred), ElastiCache (Redis), S3), hosted runtimes (ECS/EKS/Beanstalk, Lambda).
  • Track record of tinkering with self-hosted messaging and database servers (Kafka/RabbitMQ, Mongo/Cassandra/Aerospike etc) and ability to explain good and bad sides of your choices.
  • Demonstrable ability to work with cloud functions (AWS Lambda / Google Cloud Functions) and Serverless.
  • A good story of how you played with and compared various Big Data hosted and on-prem databases.
  • Clear signs of being a practicing craftsman of Terraform and/or Ansible with a sprinkling of Chef, Puppet or something that really worked for you to close the gaps Terraform and Ansible leave.
  • Definite signs of knowing how to build (Docker) containers and history of use of these in (a) local development, (b) cloud (including a story of what cloud provider was used, which service and why).
  • Clear signs of playing with Kubernetes (local and/or hosted).
  • Good experience communicating with remote departments that work in timezones different from yours.

 

This will be a plus:

  • Strong drive towards continuous learning and tinkering with new toys.
  • Being a crafty polyglot.
  • Some experience supporting Data Science pipelines and runtimes (various Python-based stacks, Jupyter, Spark).
  • Affection for expressing system design in documentation and charts, with some clear examples you can share with us.
  • Understanding of some task management system (Jira, Asana, etc) and why a system like that helps you as opposed to holding you back.

 

What we love about Svitla Systems:

  • Flexible working day start & stop times.
  • English classes, professional and personal trainings, conferences and webinars.
  • Competitive compensation, including equity options with regular performance-based salary and career development reviews.
  • Medical Insurance (health, dental), employee assistance program.
  • Personal time off: paid vacation and holidays. Work hard, play hard, right?
  • We're very fast-paced, hard-working, and love to have fun! Our cool co-workers play soccer, poker, go skiing, biking, hiking, and so much more.
  • We have tasty birthday cakes, lunch bunch and subsidized drinks and snacks, funny celebrations, team outings and unforgettable corporate events.
  • We are always happy to meet the newbie colleagues and their new ideas.
