Senior Data Engineer

Engineering Burnaby, British Columbia


Infoblox is looking for a Senior Data Engineer to augment our Cyber Security Data Science Team. This growing team supports the Infoblox mission to thwart cybersecurity threats in our customer’s networks.  This is an opportunity to work closely with data scientists and threat analysts to curate the data that makes this mission possible.

The ideal candidate is a savvy software engineer with experience in data engineering and a solid background in Spark and Python. Preferably you know that countMinSketch is not a children’s game. You are comfortable wearing several hats in a small organization with a wide range of responsibilities and have worked in a cloud environment, such as Amazon EMR. You know that Big Data is both a blessing and a curse; without good data engineering, it loses its potential. You are passionate about the nexus between data and computer science-driven to figure out how best to represent and summarize data in a way that informs good decisions and drives new products. When someone says, “my Spark job failed”, your first question is “what’s the skew?”.
