We’re looking for a remote Data Engineer to support our team.

While establishing best practices in larger team-driven projects will not fall solely on your shoulders, you will be a critical part of it.

  • Take highly technical processes and break them down for others so they are easily digestible
  • Display an attitude leaning toward solutions with path of least-resistance in mind
  • Communicate roadmaps, priorities, and process across multiple teams leaning into Radical Candor and a service based approach

  • See things from multiple perspectives, understanding the ask of non-technical teammates and providing solutions they didn’t know was possible
  • Pivot between simple projects to larger team-driven solutions for our data needs
  • Be a thought leader on industry-leading possibilities, happy to teach and educate, both internally and externally
  • Lift the team by leveling up everyone’s skill with visibility over the processes you build & conquer
