Does a terabyte seem small? 10 servers not really a cluster? 2000 events per second not worth worrying about? Only Core Data can satisfy your craving. Join a team tackling an ingress stream that rivals Twitter.  Like the Navy, we've got the big guns to deal with the big problems. Managing a fleet of servers, we run a high capacity, fault tolerant, and highly scalable service to process and store a massive stream of data in near real time. Our analytics product allows app developers and marketers to develop insights about their users by aggregating, collating, and correlating these events.

We have a variety of problems to solve, including fine-tuning read and write patterns against NoSQL databases to optimize throughput, munging terabytes of data to answer new questions all the time, modeling user behavior to estimate influence, and building the powerful backends to serve all of it.
