As part of our Data Layer squad you’ll dive into challenges of scaling a complex and powerful cloud platform. You’ll leverage the latest tools to build a new persistence layer to accelerate data persistence and retrieval by making it intuitive and fast.  As an increasing number of apps are being built by our users on the platform the data layer team must shape the future of Appian’s analytics and reporting engine.  Join us as we scale into the future!

What is Appian? It’s an application platform that lets business people build powerful cloud and mobile apps with flexible, visual models instead of clunky custom code.
