Senior Software Engineer, Search Data Infrastructure

| Greater Boston Area

About the team

The HubSpot Data Infrastructure team is responsible for the various datastores we use, including MySQL, HBase, ElasticSearch, and Kafka. We aim to provide four nines (or better) of reliability for all of these, as well as to help our developers use them easily and safely.

We’re proud to be huge productivity multipliers for HubSpot’s 30+ development teams. The teams and use cases we serve are incredibly varied, ranging from teams building prototypes of new software to supporting mature projects with dozens of tables and hundreds of thousands of users.

We spend a lot of time building automation, tooling, and monitoring to equip developers to understand and optimize their datastore usage and minimize the impact of any operational issues on customers and developers alike. For example, we’ve built database clients to make monitoring and analysis of usage patterns easier for HubSpot teams and are working to commit these changes back to the community to better support and monitor in a multi-tenant environment.

We’re also operationally responsible for a huge volume of traffic to and from these datastores. Our HBase clusters serve over 3 million requests/second across 220+ tables, while our ElasticSearch clusters serve over 20k searches/second and 50k indexes/second to 90+ billion documents. Streaming that data to and from applications amounts to more than 3 GB/sec of data through our Kafka clusters, with hundreds of producers and consumers 

What we’re looking for

  • Experienced with some or most of our datastores (MySQL, HBase, ElasticSearch, Kafka) as a user and/or operationally
  • Excited to build great tools for developers so they can work faster and more reliably
  • Interested in working with and supporting infrastructure at scale
  • Eager to learn and grow
