Wallaroo Labs is working on a huge idea, and this is a phenomenal opportunity for a person who enjoys challenges. We’re exploring new, emerging use cases involving vast amounts of real-time data, such as in automotive IoT, transportation, and ad tech. Our mission is to help firms exploit this data very quickly to create business opportunities, reduce costs, and enhance safety and security. We’re building next-generation tools like Wallaroo, a highly efficient stream-processing engine, to power applications that run on petabytes of daily data and that expose the limits of traditional big data solutions. We believe this is a $10B+ market opportunity and we aim to take a good chunk of it.

We’re a seed-stage company that’s raised $6M from some of the best enterprise software investors in NYC, and we’re looking for ambitious people to grow our team and our business, enhance our culture and contribute great ideas.
