CAREERS

Head of Cloud at Splice Machine
San Francisco, CA, US
Named as one of the 20 Red Hot, Pre-IPO Companies in 2016 B2B Tech by IDG, Splice Machine is disrupting the $30 billion traditional database with the first open-source smart database that simultaneously powers OLAP and OLTP data.

As companies globally embrace artificial intelligence and machine learning applications, they are turning to Splice Machine’s transactional and analytical smart database to power their big data. Splice Machine's lambda architecture-in-a-box, (an open source RDBMS powered by HBase and Spark) is used to ingest high volumes of data at velocity while simultaneously performing analytics and serving concurrent queries.

Splice Machine is launching a Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) solution allowing customers of all sizes to outsource and consolidate database management tasks on a standardized and optimized platform. DBaaS solutions are particularly ideal for businesses that find in-house database solutions cost and resource prohibitive. Splice Machine’s DBaaS provides the same technologies once limited to the budgets of only large enterprises.
