As the usage for real time services and insights grow at Zillow, so do the challenges with complex distributed systems such as Kafka and Flink. You will get to work on scaling the infrastructure to support those needs. Those challenges include fair multi-tenancy usage, growing from single to multi cluster management, modernizing deployments with Terraform and Kubernetes, growing to multi-regions, implementing non-trivial auto scaling mechanisms and more.
In addition, you will implement various developer tools as a way to reduce the overhead of engineers across the company by using these complex big data technologies. That includes tools for them to observe their workloads, abstracting libraries and advocating best practices.
