Big Data Engineer/Administrator (Hadoop, AWS)

A Fortune 100 company in Costa Mesa is looking for multiple experienced Big Data Administrators to join one of their growing teams on a contract-to-hire basis, including one to serve as team lead within this data engineering group. As part of this group you will be responsible for the design and implementation of their Hadoop and AWS ecosystem to support their growing big data / analytics environment.

To be successful in this you thrive in a fast-paced environment and come to the table having worked on enterprise-level Hadoop and AWS systems, preferably on critical and 24/7 systems. The ideal candidate is well versed in Hadoop components including HDFS, map-reduce, Spark, Zookeeper, Cloudera Manager, etc., and has implemented and maintained similar environments previously. Big plus for knowledge of configuration management using tools like Ansible or Chef, but not an absolute must-have.

If you are looking to challenge yourself with a sharp team, apply today!

Desired Skills & Experience

  • Experience with configuration management – Ansible, Chef, etc.
