Databricks: Software Engineer – Full Stack

At Databricks, we are obsessed with enabling data teams to solve the world’s toughest problems, from security threat detection to cancer drug development. We do this by building and running the world’s best data and AI infrastructure platform, so our customers can focus on the high value challenges that are central to their own missions.

Founded in 2013 by the original creators of Apache Spark, Databricks has grown from a tiny corner office in Berkeley, California to a global organization with over 1000 employees. Thousands of organizations, from small to Fortune 100, trust Databricks with their mission-critical workloads, making us one of the fastest growing SaaS companies in the world.

Our engineering teams build highly technical products that fulfill real, important needs in the world. We constantly push the boundaries of data and AI technology, while simultaneously operating with the resilience, security and scale that is critical to making customers successful on our platform.

We develop and operate one of the largest scale software platforms. The fleet consists of millions of virtual machines, generating terabytes of logs and processing exabytes of data per day. At our scale, we regularly observe cloud hardware, network, and operating system faults, and our software must gracefully shield our customers from any of the above.

Unlike traditional enterprise software, we design and build modern SaaS products that bring delight to all of the stakeholders: decision makers, admins, and end users. As a full stack software engineer, you will work closely with your team and product management to bring that delight through great user experience.

Below are some example teams you can join:

Clusters UI: Build the compute fabric powering all the workloads executed on the platform and the services necessary for managing Apache Spark workloads. The team also provides Databricks’ customers with fast and easy ways to provision Spark clusters, and empower advanced use cases that enable cloud features, services, and data sources.

Delta Pipelines: The mission of this team is to enable customers to successfully deploy, test & upgrade pipelines and eliminate operational burdens for managing and building high quality data pipelines. The UI is critical to the success of this product. It sets the tone for the simplicity and intuitiveness of configuring and monitoring these pipelines.

Enterprise Platform: Offer a simple and powerful experience for onboarding and managing all of their data teams across 10ks of users on the Databricks platform. We do this by building reliable, scalable services and infrastructure with intuitive UIs and by delivering high-impact, cross-cutting projects that drive the “land and expand” strategy for enterprise customers.

Redash: Provide a great SQL-centric data exploration and dashboarding experience on Databricks, leveraging Redash, the most popular open source project in this area.

Workspace: Build and extend the Databricks workspace which is a rich single page Javascript application powered by react+redux and a GraphQL server interface. This is an interactive environment for machine learning and data scientists to load data, visualize results, and create statistical models. The workspace is a SaaS service that is used by hundreds of thousands of data scientists daily.
