Are you excited by hard problems?

Qubole is a small company with big goals. We have to solve hard problems to make it simple for our users to manage and analyze data using cloud infrastructure. A sampling of areas we are working on include:

  • Distributed systems
  • Query and Workflow processing
  • Data Management
  • User-Interfaces and Data visualization

All our products run on the Cloud. As a result – a huge focus area for us is programming and operating the cloud to build fast, reliable and cost effective services. This post on how we built auto-scaling hadoop clusters is a good example of the kinds of problems we work on. All our products are encapsulated as web services – and shipping high quality services is integral to everything we do.

Do you want to make a difference?

Working at Qubole is an adventure. We may be optimizing Hadoop’s Java codebase one second, writing some JavaScript/CSS the next and be programming AWS apis in Python soon thereafter. We are continuously challenged and always learning.

Working here gives us the rare opporunity to define and build the next generation data platform. To build components and features that might be part of something Big one day. To work with bleeding-edge customers to figure out what needs to be built in the first place. To often wonder how to build something because it hasn’t been built before.
