Finding the perfect job can be difficult. Figuring out how to stand out from the competition and then navigating human biases, archaic hiring processes and other challenges can make landing that dream job seem like a long shot. ​ ​

Learn how you can take control of your tech career path. Gain key insights from new research on what drives top tech talent’s career decisions​ while also learning how technology can help you overcome obstacles that may occur during the hiring process so that you can be in control of finding your dream job.

Indeed MPH: Fast and Compact Immutable Key-Value Stores

Speaker: Alex Shinn

Alex Shinn is an engineer working on Indeed’s job recommendation system. A former Google search engineer, he is a generalist with experience in natural language processing, building scalable architectures, and various AI technologies from expert systems to modern machine learning. In his free time, he writes Scheme compilers and libraries and contributes to the Scheme standardization process.

When you need to scale an application with a lot of data, how do you decide on a storage solution? How can you both safely store and efficiently interact with large data sets? This usually boils down to a choice between SQL or NoSQL — but what if there was a third option?

In this session, developer Alex Shinn will discuss Indeed’s MPH-Table: an open source storage solution that uses minimal perfect hash functions to generate a fast and compact key/value store. Alex will discuss how we use MPH-Table at Indeed, what situations are ideal for it, additional optimizations it allows, and how it compares to alternate solutions. Attendees should enter with a fundamental understanding of existing scalable storage solutions, and will leave with a basic understanding of MPH-Table, when they might want to use it, and how other solutions compare.
