  • Build scalable data pipelines (using Spark and Airflow) to move data from different applications into our data warehouse
  • Partner with upstream engineering teams to enhance data logging patterns
  • Partner with data consumers across Robinhood to understand consumption patterns and design intuitive data models
  • Ideate and contribute to shared data engineering tooling and standards

At Robinhood, we're looking for people invigorated by our mission, values, and drive to change the world, not just those who simply check off all the boxes.
