  • You can ditch your commute since we’re 100% virtual – everyone works at home but we get together a few times each year. We make being physically together a celebration filled with good times and opportunities for new experiences.
  • We encourage personal growth and professional development through technical seminars/cyber-training, mentorships, and leadership opportunities. We have a long history of promoting from within and a career ladder that provides opportunities in both technical and managerial tracks.
  • We focus on making your career fit into your life, not your life fitting into your career.

  • Experience writing software in a professional setting.
  • Strong listening and communication skills (written and verbal), including the ability to communicate effectively with non-technical customers.
  • Willingness and demonstrated ability to learn new technologies and skills.
  • Ability to collaborate well with both internal groups and external partners and thrive in an agile environment with limited oversight.
  • Comfortable and committed to multi-tasking work in a small but rapidly growing environment.

Things we work with currently:
  • Solid understanding of data warehousing, relational databases and data modeling/design techniques and tuning (non-relational database experience a plus).

  • Experience working in "big data" platforms and related tools & scripting languages including:
    • Amazon Redshift & EMR, Presto, Hive, Python, Spark, Scala, BASH & K-Shell scripting, etc.

  • Strong design and coding skills in modern object-oriented or functional languages (Javascript, Java, C#, Python, Scala, etc).
