What You’ll Do
  • Architect and build the data layer – Working with the CTO, select the tools that will form the foundation of our modern data stack. Build pipelines that extract data from a variety of sources like Youtube, Facebook, and others, and load that data into a centralized data warehouse.
  • Provide cleaned, transformed data for analysis – Using tools like great_expectations and dbt, clean and transform raw data into forms suitable for analysis and visualization.
  • Apply software engineering practices to analytics code – Use version control, testing, and continuous integration as part of a SDLC for analytics code.
  • Become a data subject matter expert – Be able to answer data questions with confidence and rigor, and collaborate with stakeholders across the company with differing levels of data expertise.
  • Develop and maintain the data catalog – Document data sources, schemas, and access and governance rules.

What You’ll Need
  • Positive, can-do attitude 
  • Excellent communication, problem-solving, organizational, and time management skills
  • 4-7 years of experience working with data as a software engineer, data engineer, or similar role
  • Strong, recent experience with modern ELT, transformation, and related tools in the modern data stack
