Trendrr Software Engineer – We’re Hiring! Sep 26, 2011

About Us:

Trendrr is the real-time data processing muscle behind Trendrr.com, Trendrr.tv, and other media experiences.

What we do:

We process approximately a hundred thousand content items per minute. We process streams from many different sources. We analyze each message for relevance, sentiment, anticipation, gender, and many other classifications. We provide targeted analytics and curated content streams to our clients. Our clients include major television networks, movie studios, and major marketing agencies.

How we do it:

We believe in agility, but we don’t subscribe to any programming dogma. We are constantly refining, building and refactoring. Practically everything we do is real-time. We have developed our own custom distributed real-time processing stack. Big O matters for most of the problems we tackle. Not satisfied with available real-time search solutions so we built our own. Our rich query matcher can easily check a content item against hundreds of thousands of queries in under a millisecond.We are always striving for new ways to find relevancy in content. (For example, we want messages about the show “House” but we don’t want messages about working on a house or buying a house, etc.). On top of rich query matching we have built a machine learning classification layer that can be hand-trained or auto-trained. We have classifiers already built that can tell whether a tweet is about the weather, politics, tv, sports, etc. Our stack is built on open source, and we believe in giving back wherever possible. Our API and backend is written in Java. We built a custom APIserver to handle real-time streams and REST requests at scale. Our front end is written in Python, with heavy amounts of JQuery JavaScript. We handle about 6000 writes to MongoDB per second and we store 10’s of terabytes of data.

We’re looking for someone who:

  • Loves to code
  • Is entrepreneurial and can work with limited guidance
  • Can solve challenging problems with elegant solutions
  • Is interested in big data and real-time processing
  • Can code in Java and Python
  • Enjoys learning new technologies and picking up new skills
  • Is familiar/interested in nosql, especially MongoDB and Redis
  • Can take direction both in person and remotely

What you get:

  • Benefits
  • To work with and develop the newest technologies (MongoDB, Tornado, Git)
  • See your work go into production right away
  • The chance to work in NYC’s trendiest neighborhood with a fun and talented team
  • The opportunity to disrupt dinosaur industries that have it coming
  • To ride in a huge freight elevator every morning
