Senior Data Engineer - Spiceworks

Company: Spiceworks
Location: Austin
Posted on: June 10, 2021

Job Description:

Sr Data Engineer

Who you are:

You are detail oriented with a curious nature. You have experience in working to find trends in data sets and developing algorithms to help make raw data more useful. You have strong communication skills and understand the purpose behind the work that you do. You have experience with multiple programming languages and over 5 years of experience with data engineering as Senior level staff.

Ownership of data products, pipelines, and stakeholder integrations is our bread and butter and this thrills you! With your background in optimizing data retrieval and how to develop the outputs needed for stakeholders - reports, dashboards, or other visualizations. You are excited to build with us!

What you'll do:

The typical Data Engineer's role at Spiceworks Ziff Davis is both fluid and challenging. You will work to run data through pipelines and augmentations and data science technology in order to score the leads and interest levels across multiple categories of interest. Each day, you will build small, reusable components in a large landscape of data, you'll collaborate with business teams to improve data models that feed our business intelligence tools and increase data accessibility, write integration tests, and contribute to the internal engineering documents..

You'll have nuanced relationships across teams and you'll be a critical point of contact for the Data Engineering function. In this role, you will work across a data landscape with diverse technologies and potentially work in situations that are not clearly defined - as some tools do not have owners and you will need to go into the system that you've never coded in before, but you'll be responsible for diagnosing issues and identifying solutions.

You will have the standard ELT (Extract, Load, Transform) responsibilities but as this is a Senior-level role, you'll also be responsible for spearheading initiatives with other teams - ranging from assisting Data Science in developing and deploying microservices to be utilized to augment data to debugging a fluctuation in data being produced by intermediate proxy services.

You will be in close contact with teams across the business and will serve as a reliable, seasoned Engineering team member.

What will be your responsibilities?

  • Design, coordinate, and implement data integrations between other teams in the forms of databases, file payloads, microservices - using the appropriate technology for the use-case (SNS, S3, AuroraDB, K8s Background Job, etc)
  • Design, implement and maintain data pipelines for both loading disparate system's data into a Data Warehouse, as well as building out data products.

What does it take to do this job?

  • Experience working alongside Data Scientists to make use of the data that they collect
  • In-depth knowledge of distributed systems and computer science
  • A background in our primary technologies: AWS Components, Kubernetes, Docker, Snowflake (ANSI-SQL), Python, Matillion (Data Flow Orchestration), Data Dog
  • Familiarity with technologies and languages like HTML/CSS/Javascript, Make, Ruby on Rails, Golang, Scala
  • Demonstrated expertise with SQL (T-SQL and/or ANSI-SQL)
  • Expertise with some modern programming languages (Python, Ruby, etc)
  • High comfort level with Docker
