  • Tested and validated the data at all stages of the ETL process using Flume.
  • Verified business logic on every single node and then by running multiple nodes for data aggregation and segregation rules.
  • Performed output validation for transformation rules, data integrity and successful data load into the target system.
  • Involved in performance testing for data storage, timeout, commit logs, message queues.
  • Developed medium to complex HiveQL queries for validation, involving joining multiple tables.
  • Developed shell scripts to automate the test cases preparation and test results validation across multiple zones in the Hadoop data lake

Java/Hadoop Developer



  • Understanding the user requirement coming either from the BAs or other stakeholders and driving it from brainstorming to implementation.
  • To remove old documents (expired irrelevant data) from MongoDB implemented TTL index and written java class using Spring Task Execution and Scheduling for the case where TTL index cannot be implemented.
  • Implementation of feeds using hadoop ecosystem which comprises of capturing user activity on the apps and sending it to business units for analysis and thus giving better user experience.
  • Developed end-to-end process to load feed data into mongoDB using HDFS, pig and Oozie workflow. Third party puts “|” delimited feed file into our ingest server using FTP, a scheduled monitoring task polls ingest server at every 5 mins and ingested file gets moved onto HDFS using Hadoop java API and finally Oozie workflow gets triggered using Oozie Client which will run pig script. The pig script loads the feed file and stores relevant data into MongoDB.
