Data Engineer

| Greater NYC Area
Eight Sleep is the first sleep fitness company. At Eight Sleep we design products at the forefront of sleep innovation. Our mission is to power human potential through better sleep, using innovative technology, detailed design, and proven science and data to personalize and improve each night for everybody—changing the way people sleep forever and for better. Backed by leading Silicon Valley investors including Khosla Ventures and Y Combinator, it was named by Fast Company in 2018 as one of the Most Innovative Companies in Consumer Electronics.
We've just launched our temperature-regulated smart bed, the Pod. It's an absolute game changer, improving people's health and happiness by changing the way they sleep. Early feedback is great, but we still have a long way to go toward achieving our mission. 
That is why we are looking for a Data Engineer who can run data engineering systems in production in their sleep and who is seeking an opportunity to work at an extremely high scale to build stats- and ML-powered features and pipelines. Using the the best tools available, you will harness the high volume of heterogeneous complex data we collect to help change the way people sleep.

How you'll contribute:

  • Write data applications to apply ML and statistical algorithms to enormous amounts of data for product features
  • Generally contribute to improving the health and value of our data ecosystem through finding and building the best tools and infrastructure
  • Work all over the stack, moving fluidly between programming languages: Python, Node, Rust, c++ and more
  • Join a small, excellent team solving hard problems the right way
  • Ship code frequently, own meaningful parts of our service, have an impact, and grow with the company

What you'll need to succeed:

  • B.S. or higher in Computer Science (or equivalent work experience)
  • 5+ years of data/backend engineering experience working on large scale systems (especially for machine learning pipelines, or an eagerness to learn how to build them)
  • You have built and operated data-intensive applications for real customers in production systems
  • Experience in either node (typescript) or python, along with at least two of the following: Java, c++, c#, go, rust, as well as a willingness to pick up other languages as needed
  • Experience with software engineering best practices (e.g. unit testing, code reviews, design documentation)
  • Experience with Docker and Kubernetes or AWS ECS
  • You want to work in a fast, high growth startup environment with lots of independence and responsibility
  • You enjoy working with enormous amounts of data
  • You have done ops and know what goes wrong in production

Bonus Points:

  • Experience with Cassandra, Hbase, DynamoDB and other horizontally scalable storage systems is a plus
  • You have experience with stream data processing with either Kinesis or Kafka
  • Experience with embedded development is a plus

Why you'll love Eight Sleep:

  • We’re a tight-knit, passionate team that’s working to improve people’s lives by improving the way they sleep
  • Leadership is committed to employees’ wellness and career development
  • You’ll get a better night sleep every night; all full-time employees receive the Pod
  • Flexible, generous PTO
  • 100% employer contribution for medical/dental/vision insurance
  • Discounted gym memberships, commuter benefits
  • Weekly team happy hours and lunches
  • Office snacks

At Eight Sleep we continually celebrate the diverse community different individuals cultivate. As an equal opportunity employer, we stay true to our values by ensuring everyone feels they can flourish and grow. We are committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, gender identity or Veteran status.

An Insider's view of Eight Sleep

What's something quirky about your company?

Well we have actual beds in the office. Not nap pods, not lounge chairs, but actual bonafide beds. Getting pulled into "testing" in the middle of the work day really helps when the after-lunch slowdown hits. Even though it's a bit unusual to catch up with your CEO about the product while laying in bed, it can be surprisingly productive!

Andriy

Product Manager

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

On the software team, we've recently been working on a "solo sleeper" mode. This mode allows the dual-zone temperature control and biometric sensing to be used across the full length of the bed. "Solo sleeper" mode is our most-requested feature, so it's been exciting to work on a problem that will solve our biggest user need.

Mercer

Software Engineer

What are some things you learned at the company?

Eight Sleep is my first startup experience. In the past I've worked in large companies where processes are regimented and systems are in order. I have learned not to take those things for granted while discovering the true meaning of rolling my sleeves up and getting my hands dirty. It’s enriching. It’s empowering.

Irish

Director of Accounting & Finance

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Every one of our team members uses our products and we encourage sharing feedback. We have a daily stand up that is open to the whole team. There we give a rating to features in beta, we share feature ideas, and we talk about issues being flagged by our members. We've had great ideas emerge from this meeting that are now part of our products.

Alexandra

Co-Founder, VP Marketing & Branding

What is your vision for the company?

We are using innovation and technology to make the world sleep fit. In ten years from now, most people will be sleeping in smart beds like the Pod, giving them a full night of recovery, ensuring they can be their best during their waking hours.

Matteo

Co-Founder, CEO
