Job Description

About Us

Platfora is revolutionizing the way companies work with big data. We are a Hadoop company - but not focused on the low-level plumbing like the other guys. We make Hadoop useful and unlock big data in amazingly interactive ways for everyday business users and analysts. To get there, we are building an extraordinary team of big data and scalable systems experts, rock-star data scientists, and sublime UX/visualization designers. Join us on the journey ahead!

About You
You have extensive real-world javascript experience, with a track record for creating solid production grade code. You pride yourself on clean code and elegant and efficient solutions on commercial products and are ready to push the browser to the limit.  Experience with data visualization is helpful, but not necessary.

The Role
The interactive components you will build will play a critical role in the Platfora user experience -- allowing users to get hands-on and explore and dig into massive data sets.  You will be building rich visual elements (in javascript, SVG, etc) and related javascript frameworks and libraries for the next generation in visualization and analytics for big data. Your work will target both HTML5 browsers and mobile/tablet touch-centric devices.
What You Can Expect

We are laser focused on building the next great data company. If you join us, you can expect to work with talented, driven, creative and results-oriented co-workers who also bring joy and balance to their work. Your compensation will include meaningful equity ownership and a competitive salary and benefits.

We are an equal opportunity employer. Local Bay Area candidates only. Principals only.
