Systems Software Developer II for FIS GT.M

JOB SUMMARY:
Works closely with customers, business analysts and team members to understand business requirements that drive the analysis and design of quality technical solutions. These solutions must be aligned with business and IT strategies and comply with the organization's architectural standards. Involved in the full systems life cycle and is responsible for designing, coding, testing, implementing, maintaining, and supporting applications software that is delivered on time and within budget. Makes recommendations towards the development of new code or reuse of existing code. Responsibilities may also include participation in component and data architecture design, performance monitoring, product evaluation and buy vs. build recommendations.
We are looking to grow the GT.M development team. GT.M (http://fis-gtm.com/) is a key-value database engine optimized for transaction processing and business continuity. It currently runs the largest real time core banking system that is in live production anywhere in the world that I know of, and is also used internationally in health care. The largest deployed applications serve thousands of concurrent users, with databases in the TB range and enterprise scale applications with tens of thousands of source code modules. Recently, GT.M is increasingly used as a "NoSQL" database in the cloud. On x86 GNU/Linux, GT.M is Free / Open Source Software licensed under AGPL v3 (http://sourceforge.net/projects/fis-gtm). In addition to the database engine, GT.M includes a procedural language implementation for application development.
There are FOSS add-ons to access GT.M from languages such as Perl and Python. GT.M development requires hard core computer science skills - algorithms and data structures. The code is almost entirely in C, with a few bits of assembly language "glue code" in the language implementation. GT.M has many unusual features - for example, the database engine has a daemonless architecture that uses optimistic concurrency control to provide ACID (Atomic, Consistent, Isolated, Durable) transactions. For anyone who enjoys working with data structures, algorithms and complex system level software, GT.M development is a DREAM JOB!
