Job Description

The Team

Platform X is a newly formed customer-focused innovation engineering team chartered with delivering radical, emergent data solutions beyond the “swiss army knife” relational database such as Column Stores, HTAP databases, ultra-scale distributed RDBMS, Time-Series databases, Key-Value, Graph databases and specialized database/indexing technologies for unstructured data and search and beyond.


The Role

Design, develop and drive revolutionary data-handling solutions to manage massive, ever-growing data sets. We’re fanatical about designing and building our own data-handling technologies and will also leverage a combination of progressive open source technologies and acquired commercial capabilities. By joining us on this mission, you have the rare opportunity to:


· Sign your name on the metal of a “greenfield” and disruptive database technology.

· Revolutionize and move the needle in database cloud computing.

· Leverage thousands of existing customers’ datasets to drive and test your solutions.

· Flex your 21st innovation skills in many of the emerging database technologies.

· Work on a number of ServiceNow C-Suite visible projects.

Qualifications


And, unlike startups or emerging database companies, we already have an eager and a ready set of customers urging us to solve critical data-driven outcomes. Expert-level experience and qualifications to be successful in this role include:

 

  • 15+ years of database system architecture, scalability, reliability, internals and performance: cache, plan management, statistics collecting, cost model refactoring, adaptive query processing, query execution engine, memory management, massively parallel processing, etc.
  • Query optimizer implementation, tuning, debugging and how optimizers work in concert with index configurations and implementations
  • Large-scale data analytics and data warehousing

· Experience with internals of existing database engines such as MariaDB, Monet, Oracle, Redshift, Lucene, Cassandra, TiDB, CockroachDB, or others

· Performance optimization across multiple database engines

· “Hands on the keyboard” coding in C or Go

· Design and architectural patterns (e.g. high availability, disaster recovery, ACID, CAP, transaction management)

· Masters or PhD in Computer Science or related field or equivalent work experience


 

We are passionate about our product and live for our customers. We are hungry and humble, but we have high expectations. Joining ServiceNow is an opportunity to better yourself personally and professionally while solving real, 21st century data computing challenges.

An Insider's view of ServiceNow

What’s the vibe like in the office?

This is an idea space. It’s a place where we’re all operating on the same wavelength. We’re all interested in what we’re working on, right? And you hear it in people’s voices. You see it in people’s work.

Juan

Software Developer

What does your typical day look like?

There’s never a day where I don’t feel like I’m doing something purposeful or valuable to my team or company.

Mica

Business Systems Analyst

How does the company support your career growth?

It’s a good place to be in, in that it’s a company that’s growing very fast, but it doesn’t have that big company feel. You don’t feel like a number in a system and you can articulate and know where you want to go. There are people here who can help you get there.

Christian

Account Executive

What’s the vibe like in the office?

ServiceNow is unique because the people in this company are so incredibly special and unique. I can't think of enough kind words and amazing words to say about them. They really are my family.

Senior Manager, Global Sales Development
