Job Summary

The team is the innovation hub within Informatica that is responsible for delivering an extensible, reliable, and scalable platform that provides the solid foundation for all other Informatica products.

  • Reducing latency and processing time of query operations to return instantaneous results
  • Delivering large data sets to client applications with extremely high throughput
  • Enable the Data Engine to be available across on-premises, cloud, Hadoop and embedded applications.

The Data Engine has been a key constituent of Informatica' s platform and serves multiple products such as Data Services, Data Quality and Profiling. Informatica products rely on the Data Engine to fulfill the vision of a Virtual Data Machine which is capable of executing data integration jobs either natively or across execution environments such as relational databases, Hadoop or cloud. You will be a key contributor to Informatica' s next generation platform and how it handles the volume, velocity and variety of structured and unstructured data. It could be enterprise and partner data from hosted Cloud services and on-premises deployments or arbitrary data from social web sites and media.
