@IndeedEng: “From 1 to 1 Billion: Evolution of a Document Serving System” slides & video

Last week, we hosted the inaugural talk of the @IndeedEng speaker series in our Austin office. Jeff Plaisance and I talked about the evolution of Indeed’s document serving system. I told the story of how the system evolved over the last 8 years, and Jeff got into the interesting technical details of the current system (spoiler alert: LSM-Tree and memory-optimized bloom filters), which serves over 1 billion documents per day.

You can view the complete video of talk below. The slides are also embedded via Slideshare.
