We are a company capturing and analyzing current and historic trends in the relations between movies and people using *drumroll*: the internet. Why, you wonder?
We want to predict future trends and relations between movies and people.
We have a big graph of movies, actors, users and their relations accessible through an API. We want to make that data available to customers through a REST API.
We want you, because you…
- have spent the last years writing or consuming RESTful APIs
- know your way around classic RDBMS like MySQL and Postgres
- didn’t miss buzzwords like CouchDB/MongoDB/Redis/Node
- have heard about caching strategies and varnish
- love movies
Your responsibilities creating the bridge between our core data store and the outside world:
- Defining, shaping and documenting our public REST API
- Implementing the layer between the public API and the core data store
- Stress-testing the API
- Implementing caching strategies
How we roll (or work, that is):
- Scrum, Stories, Standups, Pairing
- TDD, CI, Rock Band, table tennis
- Software we use includes nginx, varnish, phusion passenger, ruby/rails3, MySQL, MongoDB, redis, neo4j, and a custom java recommender engine
- git – Love it, and use it all the way
- Opensource! http://github.com/moviepilot
- Conferences! We held a workshop on context aware movie recommendations (http://www.dai-labor.de/camra2010/) at the Recommender Systems Conference 2010 (http://recsys.acm.org )
- Attitude: generally http://bit.ly/bd94Kw
