  • Have built systems at scale in the past and can discuss the architectural tradeoffs that went into them.
  • Firm understanding of streaming vs messaging technologies.
  • Experience with data lakes, data warehousing, and OLAP technologies.

Bonus:


  • * Experience with CDC pipelines
  • * Experience with Kinesis or Kafka
  • * Experience with Grafana or Tableau

Don't check all of the boxes? Don't sweat it. We’re passionate about building a diverse team of humans and as such, if you think you've got what it takes for our chaotic-but-fun, remote-friendly, start-up environment—apply anyway. While we have a pretty good idea of what we need, we're ready for you to challenge our thinking on who needs to be in this role.
