Sr Software Developer in Shanghai, China <at> Apple

Need a PostgreSQL expert to join my team in Shanghai. Ideally you’d already be in China, but I’m open to relocation if you are the right fit. No remote, the position is in Shanghai. 

Here is the formal write up of the role so if you think you are a fit feel free to send your github and resume to peterfriday <at> apple.com. (I am the hiring manager, not a recruiter)


Job Title
Senior Software Developer 
 
Job Summary
We are looking for Software application developer with deep knowledge and experience in PostgreSQL who can help lead the next generation of products we build. You should like solving problems that no one has solved yet and care about the impact of your product. You are more passionate about solving the problem than the single solution you developed. If this describes you then we should meet. 

Key Qualifications
• 5+ years in a senior role developing large (> 500 GB data) PostgreSQL based applications in Go, Python, Node.js, Ruby, or similar languages.
•.5+ years designing, configuring and operating PostgreSQL clusters for high availability across multiple data centers.
•.Knowledge of PostgreSQL internals, performance and extensions such as Citus is a plus.
•.A strong desire to produce high quality software through test driven development, code reviews, and other best practices. 
• Experience with Go is desired.
• Experience with ElasticSearch, Couchbase and other Document-oriented, NoSQL solutions is a plus.
• Familiarity building, monitoring, automating, optimizing, managing and scaling distributed applications and services, virtualized and bare-metal infrastructure.

Description
This is a rare opportunity to put your signature on how Apple manufactures everything. You will be architecting and scaling our existing application API’s and databases and leading the team as we design future systems. Our applications enable the development of every product Apple makes. You are going to work closely with manufacturing design and the mechanical engineering team on new products. This also means writing the code to control production line equipment like lasers and other hardware.

Our current stacks are diverse and evolving combinations of old and new, closed and open source technologies. We are not looking for a solution for now; we are looking for the best solution for tomorrow. We are an ambitious team that takes smart risks and challenges everything -- including each other. None of us are the best at everything but all are the best at something. You should be the best at PostgreSQL.

We are always looking for better ways of solving the problems we are tasked with and open to the best tool for the job. In some cases this means an React.js web application supported by a Go-powered API interfacing with PostgreSQL, while in others it may leverage a simple bash script, Node.js or Ruby+Rails and ElasticSearch or a NoSQL solution like Couchbase.

About Us
The Manufacturing Design team enables the mass production of Apple's entire product line from iPhones, iPads and MacBooks to the Mac Pro, AppleTV and Apple Watch. Part of the magic that makes all of this possible is a robust set of applications and systems designed and developed by Apple that support the production of a product from prototype to announcement and beyond.

Looking for work ...


After spending the past 2 years working in a Wordpress/MySQL shop, I am looking for my next challenge back in the PostgreSQL realm.

I have been working with PostgreSQL since 1995, both as a member of the open source community, as well as commercially.

My last large project involving PostgreSQL was working with a Start Up to develop a Student Information System from the ground up.   The interface was written in Java, and in order to reduce the recompile and deployment of the interface to deal with changes to the database schema while developing, we made use of pl/PgSQL to embed business logic into the database itself.   

I am currently located in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, and optimally would like to find a role with a company where remote / telecommuting is an option.   Between my time work with the PostgreSQL Project, as well as spending the past 2 years working for a company out of Hong Kong, I have grown quite comfortable with using email and Skype, among other communication mediums, to produce results for others.

Thank you for your consideration …

Sr PostgreSQL DBA at Instructure

Hi, Instructure is looking to hire a full-time DBA. We've been making waves in the higher education space for the last few years by selling the first LMS which doesn't make teachers and students angry to use (they actually think it's pretty cool), and now we're doing the same in the K-12 and corporate markets. In other words, people love us and we're growing. Fast. Our future is bright, but we need more than shades to get there. That's where you come in. We need somebody who can: - Explain why databases are one of the most difficult layers of the stack to work with, and how to overcome their special challenges. - Comfortably work in a SQL prompt on production systems. - Thrive while working autonomously. - Be a point of contact for questions, both from technical engineers and less technical members of the company. - Be on top of problems before they become problems. - Be part of an on-call team. - Have the knowledge to respond to database problems at 3am. - Be able to automate stuff so that there aren't database problems at 3am. The ideal candidate will have a strong working knowledge of: - Linux - Ruby programming and shell scripting - Amazon Web Services - PostgreSQL (preferably), or some other ACID-compliant SQL database - Cassandra, or some other NoSQL database - pgBouncer, or some other form of database pooling - Ansible, or some other form of config management - Resource monitoring and alerting - Automation - Performance tuning - No fear of learning The New Hotness, and no inclination to throw the baby out with the bathwater Some of what we offer, besides a real chance to be part of helping people learn more efficiently, and competitive pay to work on technologies you love with the tools of your choice, is: - A relaxed work environment. We care about our employees, not how they dress. - An open, collaborative work environment that treats you like an adult. If you see something you don’t like, rock the boat. Challenging ourselves make us stronger. - An awesome team of talent and diverse experience to learn from. - Paid time off. A burned out employee helps nobody. - 100% employer-paid benefits for you and your qualified dependents. - A fully stocked breakroom, with popcorn and cookies both made - frequently. - Relocation assistance. Speaking of relocation assistance, Instructure is located in Salt Lake City, and we have branches in Seattle and Chicago. Work from any of those fabulous locations, or, if you're a proven super star, remote work is a possibility we are open to as well. At this time, we are only looking for US citizens living stateside. If you're interested in the position, please apply using this form: https://jobs.lever.co/instructure/d442e1b5-ab8e-494d-873c-eca90a532f02/apply Best regards,Jared Salisbury
