Job description

  • Develop high-quality new features (70% hands-on design/coding/development/delivery, 30% mentoring junior engineers on the team).
  • Proactively identify and remove challenging performance bottlenecks.

About you:


  • Proven track record (5+ years) delivering high-quality systems built using Spark, Hive, and Presto (along with Scala, Java and/or Python)
  • Experience working with data pipelines, event-driven architecture
  • Experience with container and orchestration frameworks (Docker, Kubernetes)
  • Ability to identify Product MVPs and build fast
  • Intolerance for sloppy code
  • Solid understanding of Computer Science Fundamentals

  • Comprehensive medical, dental, and vision benefits for employees and their families
  • 401(k) with company matching (up to 4% of annual salary)
  • Unlimited paid time off and flexible work arrangements
  • Generous paid parental leave
  • Pre-tax FSAs and commuter benefits
  • Life insurance, disability plans, and legal assistance

Note on remote ability:


We are all working from home at least through June '21 to keep our team safe and healthy. We hope to (at some point) work from our San Mateo, CA HQ and NYC offices in some capacity in 2021 and it would be great if you are based in the Bay Area or NYC. That said, we are open to remote on a permanent basis, granted you would need to be based in one of the following 10 states: AL, CA, CO, FL, IL, MI, NJ, NY, TN, or WA.
