Data Engineer

We are currently in the process of forming the data engineering team that would support our research (data science team) in delivering highly innovative features to our product. This data engineering team will also support other analytical initiatives within the company. You will be able to participate in the development of product features and data science projects using the most up to date cloud stack (Apache Spark, AWS cloud services, etc.). We have recently started experimenting with ML - so plenty of interesting things to do!

  • Go the extra mile and focus on delivering exceptional code (example: make sure the code is scalable and maintainable; optimize reasonably)
  • Quickly learn all technologies required for delivery of our service (example: AWS release new technologies every few months; quickly understand what these new technologies could bring to our customers)


Business/team/customer focus
  • Proactively help other team members when appropriate and on the other hand, seek support rather than trying to solve the problem on your own - communicate efficiently! 
  • As mentioned above - fast learner and curious personality is a must.
