About the role and tasks:

  • We want this person to respond to all our alerts about hardware problems and coordinate with the datacenter ops team to implement the appropriate fixes.


  • We also want this person to actively look for notifications of failed jobs, investigate the stack traces, and rerun those jobs that fail due to hadoop timeouts.


  • In their remaining time, we want this person to dig into the cause of timeouts and tune Hadoop parameters after getting the changes reviewed by our team.
