All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, or veteran status. 

WebMD’s Data Management team is looking for a Data Engineer with a passion for data.  You don’t need to be a doctor to work the data at WebMD, but have to be able to diagnose and solve any data problems.  Our data can predict and forecast the cold and flu season better than the CDC. We use
collaborative filtering on everything. If you visited us, you are probably in many look-alike models we have.

We support databases that can respond in milliseconds or aggregate billions of rows in seconds. We process 300G of data every day and support data warehouses, data lakes, data marts. We manage the data as well as the infrastructure that supports it.

This is your chance to use what you just learned in the real world. You probably coded in Java or Python, we use them. You probably stayed up all night trying to get neural network models to produce significant results, we use them. You probably had to write a Spark project that had to use all three RDD, DataFrames and DataSets. We use them.

Requirements:

This is NOT an intern role.
The ideal candidate has graduated either in the fall of 2020, or will graduate no later than the fall of 2021 and will have  around six months of experience post graduation or during internships while in college. We are interested in developing someone with a computer science degree or engineering degree that wants to pursue data engineering & development.
