Job Description


Our Team

The Core Technology Group (CTG) is the innovation hub within Informatica that is responsible for delivering an extensible, reliable and scalable platform that provides the solid foundation for all other Informatica products. Specifically our team focusses on building a high performance and scalable Data Engine that can scale on Hadoop, Spark, Cloud and multi-processor environments. The engine is capable of handling batch, request/response and real-time workloads to deliver data for applications. Here are some of the areas you will be innovating as part of our team:
  • Cross compiler to translate representation of a data flow plan from one engine to another such as Hive, Hadoop, and Spark
  • Optimizing query plans based on heuristics and rules
  • Delivering large data sets to client applications with extremely high throughput 
  • Enabling the Data Engine to be available across on-premise, cloud, Hadoop and embedded applications


Your Opportunity

The Data Engine has been a key constituent of Informatica’s platform and serves multiple products such as Data Services, Data Quality and Profiling. Informatica products rely on the Data Engine to fulfil the vision of a Virtual Data Machine which is capable of executing data integration jobs either natively or across execution environments such as relational databases, Hadoop or cloud. You will be a key contributor to Informatica’s next generation platform and how it handles the volume, velocity and variety of structured and unstructured data. It could be enterprise and partner data from hosted Cloud services and on-premise deployments or arbitrary data from social web sites and media.

Our Ideal Candidate

You are an experienced software engineer who has worked on developing large scale data management or database products. You relish the opportunity to work on building functionality and optimizations that improve data processing performance across different use cases that include batch, request/response and real-time systems.

Your Responsibilities

The successful candidate will be based in Bangalore, India and will be responsible for:
  • Facilitating the collaboration and engagement between senior members of the team to ensure sound design and implementation of big functional areas for the Data Engine
  • Working closely with architects, development and QA engineers to discuss and evangelize features
  • Collaborating with geographically dispersed, cross-functional teams in an Agile environment
  • Participating in internal/cross team meetings, scoping, decision making and technical documentation
  • Mentoring junior engineers on technical, architectural, design and related issues
  • Proactively identifying architectural weaknesses and recommending appropriate solutions 

Representative accountabilities may include, but are not limited to:
  • Designing, implementing, documenting, analysing and operationalizing platform features clearly to ensure that others may readily utilize them
  • Interacting with QA and documentation teams to clearly communicate the features and behaviours of the system
  • Reviewing functional and test specifications and conducting training sessions for global services and support teams
  • Assisting customers and field engineers with troubleshooting issues and problems


Your Qualifications
  • BS in Computer Science or a related technical discipline; advanced degree preferred
  • 5 or more years of relevant professional experience, a portion of which was within a enterprise software company
  • Knowledge of database internals such as query optimizations, developing core scalable parts of system or server-side multi-threaded development experience is essential
  • Strong programming skills in Java (Scala is desired as well)
  • Demonstrated understanding of object oriented design and programming
  • Knowledge of Hadoop, Hive, and Spark is highly desired
  • Knowledge of Cloud ecosystems (AWS, Azure, etc) is highly desired
  • Knowledge of SQL/ Web Services technologies is desired
  • Knowledge of containerization technologies desired.
  • Knowledge of Kubernetes or containerization is desired.
  • Proven ability to work well with others in a fast paced, iterative product definition and development environment
  • Strong interpersonal and relationship building skills within an organization
  • Able to work independently with little direct supervision and take initiative; willing to mentor and develop others


Walkin for you
