  • 3+ years of experience working with Scala, Python, Java, or C#
  • 5+ years ensuring the reliability of software and the integrity of large data stores in a production environment
  • Exposure to a variety of databases and no-SQL appliances (Redshift, Snowflake, Druid, Dynamo, Cassandra, Kafka, Elastic Search, Hive, etc.)

Bonus points if you have:

  • +1 Years working with a streaming framework
  • Competent building new data visualizations using an appliance (Grafana, Looker, Superset) or a lower-level framework (matplot, plotly, D3)
  • Exposure to some predictive models and ML algorithms
  • Experience managing a spark cluster
  • Familiarity with Kubernetes and building Docker images
  • DBA experience

As part of our team, you’ll enjoy:

  • The hustle of a startup with the impact of a global business
  • Tremendous opportunity to solve some of the industry’s most exciting problems
  • Working with an extraordinary team of smart, creative, fun and highly motivated people
