Teachable is looking for a backend data engineer. We're a small, tight-knit team of smart people who get a lot done with minimal overhead. We collaborate on roadmap, design, and architecture, and are on a mission to revolutionize education.
As a Data Engineer, you’ll work with cutting-edge technology, streaming events produced by thousands of instructors and millions of students.
