Job Specific Description:
Global Risk Analytics (GRA) technology group within bank of America is looking for a talented Apache Spark programmer Guru to join our growing team. We are building the next generation platform for model development and execution for our business partners. The vision for this platform is to provide generic capabilities to author workflows that will run model execution and related processes at scale on our internal compute grid. The platform is meant to provide a high degree of abstraction where model developers will define the data they want to bring in, the processing of the data, and the results, all via generic constructs provided by the platform. The platform will be built from the ground up with distributed compute designed in as a core concept, such that all workloads will be distributed optimally with minimal input from model developers who will author workflows.
This is a hands-on, individual contributor role which will be focused on building and optimizing the distributed compute strategy of the execution DAG. This role will require knowledge of Apache Spark internals, beyond being an expert user of the Spark API. This is an exciting opportunity that will exercise the distributed programming mettle of the most skilled Apache Spark Guru.
