We are once again looking for smart people. This time we are looking to hire a person who likes working with HBase and Lucene (or Solr or ElasticSearch). This particular combination is important to us because the very first target for this person might be the integration of HBase and Lucene / Solr / ElasticSearch. More specifically, we have our eyes on HBASE-3529, which we’ve closely examined during a recent HBase Hackathon that took place after BerlinBuzzwords. Of course, we are also open to alternative approaches if the one takes in HBASE-3529 turns out to be problematic. The work around the marriage of HBase and full-text search is to be done “in the open”, meaning in collaboration with HBase as well as Lucene, Solr, or Elastic Search developers, which makes this project that much more exciting.
Beyond HBase and search integration, we do other interesting stuff with HBase (and Flume and MapReduce and …), so this person would get to work on our Search Analytics and Scalable Performance Monitoring services.
