Hey Bay Piggies,

I'm the Sr. Director of Analytics for Riverbed Technology. Riverbed is a downtown SF-based company that builds Linux-based network appliances that accelerate lots of big companies' internal networks.

We're working on a cloud-based analytics platform for live data coming from the hundreds of thousands of our products in the world. It's a big project that's sure to have some fun scale challenges. The team (there are 3 of us, and we've all been at Riverbed since the startup days) is small and agile, while the surrounding company is growing stably.

We'll be using lots of python to implement RESTful services and we'll develop the full stack from browser to data store. It'd be cool if you or your referral had knowledge of various distributed store and computing platforms like those below, because we'll be evaluating them in the design process. The new analytics platform is a big deal for us and we're going to invest in it heavily. The opportunity, and what we're building, has much potential for growth.

Below is the full job description. Please email mmichon at riverbed.com if you or someone you know is interested. Thanks!
