What are we up to: We are building the deepest, broadest, baddest knowledge graph on the planet. We have billions of entities, hundreds of billions of facts, an amazing presentation layer, and a growing distribution network of top tier publishers. Everyone needs knowledge (we have well over 100M citations a month), and we’re here to satisfy that need.
What’s next: we’ve built an amazing product architecture that leverages our expansive knowledge graph. The next step is to become a dominant force in the growing knowledge industry. I'd love to talk to anyone working or interested in this exciting space. Unsolicited outreach is strongly encouraged!
About the team: The challenge of scaling human organizations is not unlike the task of scaling a technology stack. Just as large monolithic software applications tend to become ineffective and fail, a highly scalable engineering organization can't be dependent on hierarchy. Developers, designers, and data analysts can form small, cross-functional, mission-oriented teams that are able to operate decoupled of one another (Bezo's 2PT). Besides yielding more effective results, this distributed systems approach to human organizations promotes a happier, more harmonious engineering culture.
#2 of 3Green Hills Software [http://www.ghs.com/] | Santa Barbara, CA
We're hiring for multiple teams, both in Santa Barbara and worldwide: [http://www.ghs.com/jobs.html]
I'll put in a plug for my own team of Embedded Software Consultants. We're called the "support" department, but we don't field calls about "my cup holder is broken." We're much more likely to have someone turn compile 20K lines of C++ code with optimizations for the first time and have them tell us there's a bug in the compiler; but in reality their program has some undefined behavior that happens to behave differently with optimizations on -- and it's our job to find it! (Once we discovered that the code needed three volatile keywords added, on two lines of code!)
If you thrive on troubleshooting software problems and designing creative solutions, enjoy learning about new technology, and want to jump in and save customers in desperate need of a hero, this is the job for you!
* Learn and understand the inner workings of complex software systems
* Quickly diagnose technical problems with limited information
* Succinctly explain complex technical concepts to experts from other technical domains
* At least 2 years experience programming in high-level languages, C, and C++
Full-time, onsite, and we can arrange a visa as needed.
