If you are interested in a career at the leading edge of technology, we look forward to hearing from you.

How you'll make an impact at Collibra:

Collibra is looking for a Software Engineer with deep expertise in federated querying, MPP Databases, or closely related domains, to join the Virtualization team. The Virtualization team is a new team to Collibra responsible for developing cutting-edge new products leveraging Collibra’s world-class Data Intelligence platform. This candidate will exercise wide latitude in determining strategies, objectives, and approaches to critical assignments and will be responsible for fostering healthy relationships across Collibra to ensure successful execution as our products are expected to generate revenue and bring new, innovative capabilities to the market.

The ideal candidate must be strategic in their thinking but also “hands-on” demonstrating the ability to dive deep into code and implement complex systems where necessary. You will be working with a diverse, geographically distributed, talented, and highly collaborative team.

  • Partnering closely with Product Management and Marketing to set product strategy and conveying estimates of effort for agilely implementing complex solutions
  • Ensuring the team has clarity on project requirements, building effective technical project roadmaps and plans, and shiping high-quality products
  • Creating formal networks with key decision makers and serve as an external spokesperson for the organization
  • Implementing prototypes of features that accelerate the value of Collibra for customers that can be used and productionalized by others
  • Managing and working with complex dependencies between different teams and products to ensure alignment, product quality, and vision are in a class of their own
You Have:
  • 10+ years Java development experience
  • Excellent communication skills to interact and collaborate with other Engineering teams, Product Management, customers, and at community events and trade shows
  • Expert SQL and data processing skills
  • Deep experience with at least one distributed database technology: MPP query engine internals (Impala, Teradata, etc.) as well as federated query engines such as Presto, Tibco Virtualization Server, or Denodo
  • Strong understanding of distributed systems programming
  • Strong understanding of container and container orchestration technology (Docker, Kubernetes)
  • SaaS experience 
  • Comfortable with a fast pace environment with competing priorities and ability to remain focused and confident
Strong plus:
  • MDM experience
  • Previous experience working on geographically distributed teams
We Offer:
  • A friendly, rapidly growing environment where your input will be valued and growth is fostered
  • Ongoing opportunities to collaborate with fellow Collibrians globally
  • Flexible hours = quality > quantity
  • Unlimited Vacation
  • A monthly allowance for your mobile 
  • A state-of-the-art laptop for work
  • And of course, competitive benefits, compensation and equity.

An Insider's view of Collibra

What’s the vibe like in the office?

There are a lot of options for when I want to be “distracted” from my work. The office has an amazing mix of personalities that blend together very well. It’s great to have exposure to the individuals who started this company, as well as the rest of the c-suite employees. The office is collaborative so it feels like your opinion actually matters.

Akil

Sales Development Representative

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Cross-team collaboration within Collibra is integral to my position. As an FP&A Analyst, I act as a financial advisor to co-workers across different teams to ensure business decisions and their corresponding impacts help achieve not just Collibra’s business goals, but Collibra’s financial goals as well.

Billy

FP&A Analyst

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Back in the summer of 2016, I started working at Collibra as an SDR. Fast-forward just two years, and not only have I had the opportunity to create a new account executive role, but I'm now the global sales leader for that team! Collibra is growing fast and there are loads of exciting opportunities available to those who want to work for it.

Jonelle

Manager, Junior Account Executives

What makes someone successful on your team?

The customer advisory management team looks for people who are determined to drive value for our customers. They’re people who build strong relationships, identify challenges, and love to find solutions. It’s why our customers love us!
