Hi Hadoop Users,

Nice meeting you at the recent Jan 9th meetup. I'm cofounder of Alohar Mobile, located in Palo Alto. We are developing the first Context-as-a-Service Platform (CaaS) for mobile apps and smartphones. We are generating a lot of data, and need Hadoop help.

Robert Scoble named Alohar Mobile atop his list of the 9 hottest technology companies he met last year. Our data analytics platform enables a whole new category of intelligent and context-aware mobile apps.

We are looking for Hadoop and Java engineers to join our team. Our platform has been featured in TechCrunch, Forbes, Inc Magazine, WSJ, Gigaom, and other media outlets.­

Please feel free to email me your resume:

We gladly accept referrals of your friends & colleagues, and will pay $2,000 to the referrer for people we hire.

Regards, Alvin Lau
