11955 Democracy Drive | Reston | Virginia | United States | 20190

As part of our Data Layer squad you’ll dive into challenges of scaling a complex and powerful cloud platform. You’ll leverage the latest tools to build a new persistence layer to accelerate data persistence and retrieval by making it intuitive and fast.  As an increasing number of apps are being built by our users on the platform the data layer team must shape the future of Appian’s analytics and reporting engine.  

In addition, you will be the primary person to improve the rapidly growing, complex and highly available MySQL server architecture for our customers. You will need to define best practices for automated procedures in upgrading and debugging performance tuning issues. We expect you to know MySQL database system inside and out and be a little bit obsessive about performance and scalability.

Join us as we scale into the future!

  • Casual working environment -- wear what you want

  • Expert knowledge in MySQL and InnoDB implementation, configuration and tuning
  • Preferably active contributor to the MySQL Open Source Repository
