  • Build scalable, reliable, and maintainable systems able to handle more data, more queries, and more insights.
  • Design platform APIs upon which multiple product features depend.
  • Continuously and incrementally improve our engineering processes, documentation, tools, and systems.

Who You Are/You Have:

  • 5+ years as a backend or full-stack software engineer.
  • Proficiency with relational databases and SQL.
  • A generalist approach, and an open mind to trying new ways of solving problems.
  • A passion for building software to solve business and product problems.
  • Strong technical skills that enable you to deliver a quality product, quickly to market.
  • An acumen for working with others to break down problems into smaller deliverables with intermediate milestones.
  • Strong communication skills with both technical and non-technical teammates.
  • A growth mindset and positive attitude.

Ideally, You'll Have:

  • Strong Python programming skills.
  • Experience with large-scale data processing engines like Apache Spark.
  • Experience working with datasets of 10s of millions of entities, especially as a knowledge graph or similar format.
  • Experience building and scaling data pipelines.
  • Experience collaborating with stakeholders on data-related problems alongside data analysts, data engineers, and data scientists.
