Senior DevOps Engineer, Hadoop

LiveRamp is looking for engineers to help us maintain and scale our Hadoop infrastructure. Our technology enables customers to measure the impact of digital marketing on sales and deliver messages to consumers on virtually any channel or device.

We run a large Hadoop cluster with thousands of physical servers, with more than 60,000 CPUs and raw HDFS capacity in excess of 70 PB. We are responsible for ensuring the availability and health of a cluster used to process billions of customer records on a daily basis.

You’ll be a member of our DevOps team and while you are focused on Hadoop, you will also have the chance to work on other infrastructure-related initiatives such as kubernetes, shared libraries and build pipelines. We’re looking for serious Hadoop expertise, but we also want you to get experience with many other cool technologies.

Leave your ego at the door, roll up your sleeves and start solving huge challenges as soon as you begin.
