We offer stock options and competitive salaries to all our employees. No one goes hungry. Everyone is part of a team. Brilliant yet humble engineers fill our floor and collectively solve problems never solved before. We like each other outside of the office, we have been known to hike on Angel Island, cheer on the SF Giants, and get down at the Academy of Sciences’ nightlife. On a typical day, you may find us arguing over equations at a white board, running to Coit Tower on a team run, or bragging about our culinary skills at a monthly potluck. And if you’re lucky, you may just see a dog or cat running around.
The impact you can have as an engineer here is enormous. The complexity and scale of the problems we are solving at Topsy are amazing. The systems we are building give incredible insight into what is happening in the world, and we’ve only scratched the surface of the data we have available. If you want to work on the biggest data, the toughest problems, and with the smartest people, then you need to look at topsy.” – Ryan Tierney

There are lots of exciting technologies and applications coming out from tons of companies across Silicon Valley but what sets Topsy apart, and a reason I love working here, is the people. Not only are the people here exceptionally smart (most are experts in their fields) but they are also extremely humble and caring. The sense of camaraderie and the familial atmosphere really make Topsy a great place to work – in addition to the cutting edge technology we are constantly innovating and bringing to market.” – Barry Dauber
The web is rapidly evolving from “pages” to “people”. This new social web is dynamic, real-time and massive. It is both a source of new information and the means in which relevant things on the “old” web are discovered and shared. Traditional search technologies, such as those used by Google and Bing, are not designed for the new real-time web. A completely new approach and technology is needed.
Topsy is building and operates the world’s largest searchable index and real-time analytics platform for the social web. We love BIG data and thrive on solving complex engineering challenges. Our index is massive with over 100 billion documents and is doubling every 6 months. Our platform is designed to index over 1 million documents a second and is capable of searching and ranking billions of documents in milliseconds. We compute and index vast amounts of social metrics and analytics in real-time—everything from stats, counts, trends and audience exposure to advanced geo-location and sentiment. We do all of the heavy lifting to make it easy for businesses to derive meaningful realtime insights from the new web.
