About the role: 

As a Data Engineer at 1010data, you will be responsible for designing, maintaining, and optimizing large-scale automated ELT processes. Working actively with analysts and customer teams specializing in enterprise data warehousing, you will leverage industry-standard data orchestration tools as well as in-house proprietary scheduling and automation tools to create efficient and reliable ELT jobs which support 1010data’s product offerings and data warehousing needs for our customers. As we incorporate more cloud technologies into our processes, you will be at the forefront of exploring and defining best practices and helping us transition our products to be more scalable.  

As part of the onboarding process, you will learn about 1010data’s proprietary technology stack. Our query engine, query language, database, and data storage layer were all developed and fine-tuned in-house over the lifetime of the company.

You will be formally trained in the latter as a new 1010data employee. The concepts should be familiar to anyone with exposure to database techniques like normalization/indexing/partitioning, MapReduce, columnar database architecture and distributed systems.

  • Designing and writing new enterprise-scale ELT/ETL workflows from scratch in Python using Airflow, Docker, AWS, etc. 
  • Modifying/redesigning legacy ELT/ETL processes to leverage cutting-edge open source and proprietary technologies 
  • Ensuring quality, reliability and uptime for critical automated processes 
  • Migrating our products and processes into the cloud while drastically reducing our in-house data center footprint
