Senior Data Engineer Opening πŸ‘ˆ Come Join us at Dwolla!

👋  Hi, I’m Katie - Talent Recruiter here at Dwolla.  I’m looking for an analytical, empathetic data engineer who loves trouble-shooting and working in a fast-paced, collaborative, diverse Engineering team.

Here is what you can expect to work on in this critical role:

You will lead the efforts to leverage the data we hold to its maximum value.  Our Dwolla API platform processes billions of dollars in payment every month on behalf of millions of users.  Using this date, you will assist the rest of Dwolla in making the most informed decisions possible.

This includes developing and executing a technical vision for cutting-edge AWS-based data pipelines.  Additionally, you can expect to support new product offerings and data science efforts while also ensuring deployed systems uphold required levels of performance.

Experience working with infrastructure-as-code and CI/CD systems (such as Terraform, Troposphere, Cloudformation, Jenkins) and experience with Microsoft SQL Server administration (especially high-availability setups) would be clutch for this position 🎉, as these are also included in the responsibilities of this role.

How do our Senior Data Engineers spend their time?

You can expect to spend about 50% building and growing the Dwolla data lake and date pipelines and about 20% of your time defining and implementing DataOps methodologies.  Additionally, 20% of your time will be spent writing and optimizing queries and reports. Lastly, you’ll spend about 10% of your time supporting and monitoring existing databases.

Our team values collaboration, a passion for learning and a desire to become a master of your craft.  We thrive in asynchronous communication.  You will have a lot of support from leadership when you communicate proactively with detailed information about any roadblocks you may encounter.

Qualities of Senior Data Engineers Who Thrive in This Role

🔥 You are a driven, self-starter type of person who isn’t afraid to dig for answers, stays up-to-date on industry trends and is always looking for ways to enhance your knowledge (yes, industry-related podcasts count! 🎧) .

💡Your skill set includes a blend of DataLake-related technologies in AWS (Redshift, Glue, Athena would be great!)

🖥️  Experience with Python and Scala would be amazing!  (Perhaps you’ve got a software engineering background?)
