Our engineering team solves interesting problems in distributed systems, fault tolerance, optimization, and machine learning. We control the whole engine. And our customers such as Facebook, Zynga, Uber, and others put in petabytes of data and ask whatever questions they want; it's our job to make that easy and fast. It's a practical twist around some tough theoretical problems.
