This position is ideal for an engineer who enjoys a good amount of variety in their daily work, and seeks to get their hands-on new technologies as much as possible.  If you’re interested in your work having visibility and impact, rather than being a dime-a-dozen coder, keep reading.

The Team:

The Data Engineering team, working closely with Data Science and Data Analytics, is at the nexus of the P&P division’s engineering efforts.  Our team’s role within the company is increasingly vital and important, as we become an increasingly data-driven business.  We collaborate with a varied set of our colleagues across the organization, with teams ranging from Web & App Development to Sales & Marketing, and most others in between.
