Looking for an excellent Java engineer

By | March 21st, 2014

Want to work at a company that helps customers in over 150 countries around the world protect the memories they hold dear? A company that stores over 100 petabytes (1/4th as much as Facebook) of customers’ photos, music, documents and work files in a purpose-built cloud storage system?

Well here’s your chance. Backblaze is looking for another fantastic Java engineer.

You will work on the server side APIs that authenticate users when they log in, accept the backups, manage the data, and prepare restored data for customers. You will work with artists and designers to create new HTML web pages that customers use every day. And you will help build new features as well as support tools to help chase down and diagnose customer issues.

Must be proficient in:
– Java
– Apache Tomcat
– Struts
– UTF-8, Java Properties, and Localized HTML (Backblaze runs in 11 languages)
– Large scale systems supporting thousands of servers and millions of customers
– And some ‘C’ and Javascript is helpful
– Cross platform (Linux/Macintosh/Windows) — don’t need to be an expert on all three, but cannot be afraid of any

Looking for an attitude of:
– Passionate about building friendly, easy to use Interfaces and APIs.
– No platform bigotry — Linux good, Windows good, Macintosh good!
– Has to believe NoSQL is an Ok philosophy to build enormously scalable systems.
– Likes to work closely with other engineers, support, and sales to help customers.
– Believes the whole world needs backup, not just English speakers in the USA.
– Customer Focused (!!) — always focus on the customer’s point of view and how to solve their problem!
