The Moz Index and Crawl team solves technically challenging and interesting software engineering problems. As a small team, we punch above our weight to deal with petabytes of data and trillions of records. This is your opportunity to solve large-scale puzzles that most developers never see outside of large corporations like Google. Collecting, processing, and serving this data to our customers takes super- smart engineers with varied technical skills, backgrounds, and work history. We not only love to code, we love to learn new things and teach techniques to others.

The Index Team builds foundational and mission-critical data used by other Moz engineering teams to provide us a competitive advantage. We are currently working on the next generation of our software built on an exciting, cutting-edge technological stack. This technology leap allows us to surpass our current system by an order of magnitude in both size and speed to market. We'd love your help!
