About the Role:
The role of the Data Infrastructure Engineering team is to form the foundation for data processing and exploration at Opendoor. One component is producing a world class data set for our pricing and machine learning algorithms. Real estate data is a complex and challenging data domain, and to put things into perspective, a single piece of inaccurate data can cause hundreds of thousands of dollars of swings in home value. Another component is building platforms and tools to allow our analysts and data scientists to iterate on state of the art machine learning and pricing algorithms, which are critical to serving our customers and ensuring Opendoor is a sustainable business. As Opendoor continues to transact on billions of dollars of homes, the Data Infra team continues to lie at the core of Opendoor’s product and business strategy.
Your responsibilities will include:
- Processing large amounts of real estate and transactional data in batch and real time to generate a highly accurate world class real estate data set.
- Understanding how to quantify uncertainty with our data.
- Deriving fields from unstructured data (e.g. extracting data from home photos and satellite images with Computer vision algorithms, extracting data from MLS remarks with natural language processing).
- Performing analysis to ensure our datasets are robust and reliable for machine learning and business use cases.
- Applying deep understanding of data processing technologies to reason about engineering / design tradeoffs.
- Working with data processing technologies such as Spark, Airflow, Pytorch, Jupyter, and Pandas
We're looking for teammates who have:
- Bachelor's degree in Computer Science, Engineering or related field, or equivalent training, fellowship, or work experience
- 6+ years of track record in building and delivering production quality software systems
- A deep understanding of data processing technologies such as SQL, Spark, Hadoop, and Kafka
- Experience with Airflow, Luigi, or other ETL scheduling technologies
- The ability to propose and test hypothesis to problems, and drive toward the best solution whilst starting with incomplete information
- Experience with building resilient and reliable systems or data pipelines
- A focus on rapid delivery without sacrificing technical excellence
- Care for modular, performant and testable code
- Love delighting customers with honest, transparent products and experiences
- Experience working with AWS, microservice architecture, Python/Go/Scala, Kubernetes
- Experience working with GIS Data
