A former member
Post #: 1
Turiya Media is a recently launched start-up that builds software for predictive data mining in online games. We face many exciting technology challenges - we design and implement machine learning and data mining algorithms to run over game data, we process large amounts of data in "the cloud", and all of our code has to fast to support real-time insights. The company was founded by entrepreneurs and data modeling experts and is backed by leading venture capital firms. Turiya recently won the top start-up award at GamesBeat@GDC 2010 and was written up in TechCrunch (­.

We are looking for a senior software engineer to help build all aspects of our technology. As a very early-stage company, we want someone is not afraid to try new technologies, able to help drive a product and system development, identify any/all technical bottlenecks, and work in any capacity necessary to help make the technology hum. One day you could be implementing a Support Vector Machine algorithm for predicting user behavior, the next day scaling it using Hadoop on Amazon EC2, and on the third day building a Web-based application for data visualization. Our team is talented, but small, so there are many opportunities for you to own large pieces of the technology.

What you'll do: Anything and everything technical, possibly including (but not limited to)
- Work with a team of statistical modelers to build software systems for data analysis
- Architect/deploy/maintain a cloud-based infrastructure for large-scale data storage and processing
- Build and run a suite of online applications for game publishers
- Help define product, build the team, setup internal networking, participate in happy hours, enjoy start-up life, etc.

What we want:
- Passion for technology and excitement to build a technology company from the ground-up
- Expertise in multiple programming languages such as Python and Java
- Love of data and data-related technologies: MySQL, Map Reduce, Hive, Pig R, etc.
- Prior work with with "cloud" technologies - e.g., EC2, S3, etc
- Knowledge of statistical modeling, data mining, or machine learning a huge plus
- Experience with Web development (Django, Rails, etc) a bonus
- Ability to run with ill-defined specs and react quickly to shifting needs
- Previous startup experience (redundant with the previous bullet)
- Background or prior experience in online gaming is a plus

What we offer:
- A position at a very early stage company in one of the hottest areas of technology
- Salary, benefits and equity competitive for an early stage start-up
