Job type: Full-time

Here's to the crazy ones. The hackers. The doers. The passionate geeks in a world of corporate drones.
A cool, fully-remote startup is looking for a Senior Data Engineer… preferably one that does NOT suck! You must be speaking Python better than your mother tongue, and an expert when it comes to data pipelines.
First, let's get one thing out of the way. We know that our salaries are low, at least for the exceptional talent we're looking for. We plan to dramatically increase salaries by the end of the year when we raise a seed round. We have already attracted serious interest from top investors, but we're intentionally bootstrapping on our own till our public launch in time for Black Friday.
On top of the salary, you'll get generous stock options, performance-based bonuses, and annual profit share, as well as extensive training and mentoring, BUT…
You must be a perfectionist — you're simply too passionate about your work to call something "done" when it's not near perfect yet!
Do you remember how "Monica" from F.R.I.E.N.D.S was obsessed with the little details? Now, imagine if she became a software engineer somehow… Do you think this is you?
Okay, we want to hire you if you...
have 3+ years of data engineering hands-on experience with exposure to a wide array of BigData tools like task queues, message brokers, stream-processing frameworks, and AWS' data stack
have experience managing large-scale data pipelines in production
are proficient with Python2.7 and Python3 alike
have expert-level proficiency with ETL and data modeling
know your way around AWS, for real. [SQS, S3, Lambda, EC2, etc.]
are familiar with AWS Lambda and Serverless architecture
are skillful with web scraping using tools like Selenium and Scrapy
have ninja-level skills with SQL (PostgreSQL/MySQL)
are proficient with UNIX and Shell Scripting
are comfortable working with petabyte-scale, billion-row datasets
It would be "nice" if you...
are skillful with backend development using Python, Django, and DRF (HUGE PLUS)
have experience with applied Machine Learning and recommender systems
have experience with any of these technologies: ElasticSearch, Golang, SQLAlchemy, Apache Kafka, or React Native
have DevOps experience and are familiar with either Terraform, CloudFormation, or AWS CDK
On top of that, you...
are passionate about making an impact in an early-stage startup with a kickass product
are productive, attentive, and self-driven
are familiar with Agile methodologies and CI/CD
have strong communication skills and fluency in English
can work in a fully remote environment
document and test your code
have Sherlock Holmes-like detective skills; you know how to dive deep into data investigations to identify unknown problems and debug data anomalies.
As a senior data engineer, you will...
architect, build, and maintain batch/real-time data processing pipelines
integrate a wide variety of data sources; third-party APIs, data feeds, etc.
build advanced web scrapers and crawlbots on top of AWS Lambda
take part in managing our Big Data infrastructure on AWS
develop creative solutions to our data problems with robust, production-ready code
build tools to automate data cleaning and ingestion
architect and implement a robust infrastructure for optimal ETL and distributed storage
Are you the real deal? Let's talk!
There's plenty of cool things to do; data processing pipelines, lots of integrations and APIs, infrastructure, and even a possibility of working with ML-powered deal recommendation engine.
If any of these things fall into your area of expertise and you're up for a challenge building a 10x product alongside a team of A-player hackers, now is the time to apply. You'll be joining us at the perfect time.
