The GMB Business Analytics team is driving advances in data
science, analysis, and engineering at Viasat and looking for a
developer who demonstrates curiosity, adaptability, and enjoys
solving tough engineering problems. The team works with customers
and stakeholders to help drive business value by building
applications utilizing our data and machine learning platforms.
This task is an exciting challenge for building solutions starting
with research and development following all the way through to
engineering and deploying projects into production.
As a data engineer on the team, you will use the latest Big Data
technologies (Spark, Kafka, Impala, Map/Reduce) to store, process,
and analyze the continuous stream of data our systems produce. We
have a unique set of skills to support these goals. As a team
member you'll build a breadth of knowledge across knowledge areas
including software development, distributed systems architecture,
machine learning, and data science.
As a software developer you'll build the systems and tools that
the data scientists use to perform their analysis. Working with
people of varying skill sets provides a unique collaboration
opportunity for those creating the tools (developers, i.e. you) and
those analyzing the data (data scientists). You'll interact with
each other daily, encouraging innovative solutions to Big Data
problems accounting for both the how and the why.
We encourage learning through osmosis, ensuring no one is
confined to their specific area of work. Similarly, we value
ability and willingness to learn, over experience in a particular
area. This isn't to say we don't value expertise and mastery of a

our rapidly changing field.
