Principal Full Stack Engineer

Mountain View, CA
Tubular Labs is at the forefront of the digital video revolution. Tubular’s products ingest information about online videos across major social platforms (Facebook, Youtube, Twitter, etc) and make this information available via an intuitive and analytically insightful single-page web application, all while aiming to provide sub-second response times. Every day, millions of new videos are uploaded across these social platforms. The upload and consumption rates of online video are growing exponentially over time. We’re looking for top-notch engineers to help us solve some of these challenging big data problems.

As a Principal Full Stack Engineer, you will be responsible for a large vertical stack of code ranging from UI to backend. You will work on a single-page web application written on top of a large stack of modern open source frameworks and libraries. Your work will touch a wide range of problems - from creating effective data visualizations to making the UI feel ultra responsive via asynchronous I/O techniques. On the backend, you will help architect and implement GraphQL queries and business logic that can quickly and efficiently respond to highly parallelizable big data queries.

We’re looking for engineers who enjoy working on the full stack of technologies used to create a data-centric product with a beautiful customer experience. Your responsibilities will range from feature development to metrics monitoring and query optimization. We’re a small and effective team that takes pride in deploying new functionality on a weekly basis. You will work closely with our product and design teams to rapidly design and deliver new functionality to users. Ideal candidates are detail-oriented engineers who fret about every pixel on screen and who take pride in writing clean code with thoughtful test coverage.
