Notes from hiring manager:


I prefer a candidate who has decent exposure to Hive and MapReduce already and is also decent with java and build-release/config management/operations side of things could be okay.


Profile requirements are that we need a candidate who has a decent java exposure and can go well into Hive source code and accommodate any needful changes. We use open source Apache Hive with some custom changes, so it is very important for us to have a candidate to be comfortable handling the hive patches or code changes as appropriate.

Thanks & Regards,
