Job Description :
Position: Application Programmer with (NoSQL and Cassandra)

Duration: Full Time
Job Description

Experience must include a solid Cassandra operational background.
Position Overview:
The NoSQL Engineer is a key position within the RPGWIM Infrastructure Design & Build team and will support all LOB’s within Retail, Preferred & Global Wealth Management Portfolio.
This role acts as a key SME for general NoSQL technologies, with a focus on products such as Cassandra, SOLR, Hadoop, and MongoDB.
A NoSQL Engineer is expected to be a senior engineer, architect, and technology leader who may play many roles throughout a product or project lifecycle and is not simply a Database Administrator.
Candidates must be comfortable with hands-on support for Proof-of-Concept efforts and advise partner teams on product evaluations.
This includes specifying hardware for performance optimization and advising on tuning parameters throughout the hardware/software stack.

Candidates must be comfortable addressing a variety of audiences and adjust their communication styles accordingly.
The NoSQL Engineering team is expected to establish emerging technology blueprints and reference architecture documentation for NoSQL database products while also supporting those products in a production environment.
The scale and frequency of NoSQL Engineering’s deployments requires a commitment to automation and an ability to work in uncharted territory with new technologies.
The candidate will be the go-to person on high priority projects, and must be able to balance priorities and shifting requirements with minimal direction. The ability to independently learn new NoSQL products and thrive in a fast-paced environment is a must!
