With this post, we continue the “Feld Job Board.”  If you are a god-like software architect that isn’t intimidated by the notion of making a real-time system work across 10,000 distributed servers, this might be for you.  Location doesn’t matter, but we are going to do our best to relocate you to Boulder, CO.

If you’ve been following along at home, you know that I’m very excited about a company in Boulder called Me.dium that I’m involved in.

On the heals of their financing, Me.dium is looking for a superstar Chief Architect.  Me.dium is building a real-time representation of all the activity on the Internet.  To build a near real-time system that scales to thousands of servers requires intense engineering at every layer.  The Chief Architect at Me.dium will work side-by-side with the CTO and is the central point of contact for network, systems, database, and application architectures.  Given the volume of data, the complexity of the algorithm, and demanding scaling requirements, this is a unique and challenging opportunity for the right candidate.
