Do you want to work on something that you, your friends, family and hundreds of millions of others use every day, and actually makes you smarter about how you spend your money? What if you could do that with a bunch of really smart people in an environment that actively encourages learning, growth and individual development? Every day, the Bazaarvoice engineering team tackles interesting and challenging problems across virtually every major computer science problem domain, and we do it all at a massive scale.
Bazaarvoice is looking for outstanding people who are passionate about building great software, and want their work to have real-world impact. Over the last 10 years our software has facilitated hundreds of billions of consumer-to-consumer conversations and interactions about products and services offered by the world’s biggest brands and retailers. The best part is that we’re just getting started, and we need you to help us take things to the next level.
Who we want…
Someone who has strong software engineering fundamentals (e.g. OO design, test-driven development, unit testing, code reuse, code reviews) as well as hands-on experience with full stack development across the entire software lifecycle (design, build, test, deploy, support).
This engineer will be on our Data Services team working on our content moderation system, which enables moderation of all consumer generated content across the entire Bazaarvoice network. This mission critical system provides an interface for human moderators to categorize, match, and filter all forms of multi and social media content. This drives our ability to provide higher quality, authentic content and information to facilitate better informed purchasing decisions by consumers.
The role involves designing and implementing distributed, fault-tolerant systems and the infrastructure so we can scale to support the high throughput and quick response times necessary to moderate large volumes of consumer generated content each month. It is a full-stack system, requiring development from the user interface through the data layer, including integrations across disparate systems within the Bazaarvoice network.
