  • Experience and/or interest in systems design, infrastructure
  • Strong programming skills
  • Experience with cloud providers e.g. AWS, GCP, AzureBS/MS in Computer Science/Engineering or equivalent experience

  • Experience with big data, batch processing, stream processing
  • Experience architecting data at scale

As part of our team, you’ll enjoy:

• Working on a product that has an immediate impact on people’s lives all around the world
• Collaborating with a team of creative, fun and driven colleagues 
• Comprehensive health coverage, competitive salary, 401(k) employer match
• Other perks and wellness benefits like a fitness membership subsidy, paid concierge medical membership, pet insurance offerings, and a commuter subsidy
