Lead Software Engineer (Sports Data)

Shape a rapidly scaling industry: 

Our unit is responsible for sports content delivery. The sports data domain is very reactive by nature, so we have to push a massive number of changes (several thousand per sec) to several thousand clients in a near real-time manner. One part of our solution is a data streaming platform. In addition to data streaming, we build a PUSH-based queryable API that retrieves data with SQL-like queries and subscribes to PUSH updates. This concept is very similar to Rethink Db Change Feed.

We extensively use .NET Core and microservices approach. We are mixing C#/OOP (for bound operations, infrastructure) with F#/FP (Domain logic, TDD) from the code perspective. We keep our functional code approachable to C# developers, and we’ll help you learn FP and distributed systems design. Our data streaming platform is based on Kafka and stateful F# services, and for logs, we use ELK for metrics — InfluxDb + Grafana. The API is based on ASP.NET Core. We use MongoDB for data snapshots.
