Savi Technology Alexandria, VA

  • Employment Type Full-Time

Sensor technology, the Internet of Things, and Big Data analytics are some of the hottest areas in tech right now. At Savi Technology we offer you the ability to work on ALL of these, with three critical differentiators. First, you get to work with a fantastic tech stack. Second, you get to use this technology to solve very interesting, real-world problems. Third, you get to see some of the largest companies in the world use your solutions everyday—on billions of dollars of “things”—to realize millions of dollars of value.

Savi Technology is hiring engineers excited by the prospect of using big data technologies to enable our customers to change the entire operation of their enterprises using insights and predictions from sensor and IoT data. We are currently looking for two well qualified individuals to join our team and are open to varying levels of experience and will match compensation accordingly. So if you are a new up-and-comer ready to learn or a seasoned vet ready to tackle items at a more architectural level we look forward to hearing from you. We have created an architecture using Kafka, Spark, Cassandra and Solr that combines data ingestion, transformation, finite state processing, aggregation, indexing, and immutable storage to create an infrastructure for sensor data. We tackle fun challenges like ingestion of data in real-time—without any need of an API—and exactly-once processing at thousands of transactions per node per second.

We work in multi-disciplined teams of product managers, hardware engineers, data engineers, data scientists, application engineers, and dev-ops professionals. You will see your work in production in days or weeks—not months. You will get the opportunity and flexibility to explore a wide range of technologies and challenges.

If you are excited by the combination of a “can do” startup culture and the customer base and financials of an established company and want to build solutions for the Internet of Things and to tackle big real-world challenges, then Savi Technology is right for you.
