    Full-time or part-time

We’re looking for someone to join our team of data engineers, developing new data pipelines and scaling the existing ones for a growing number of customers and use cases.

  • We’re using technologies like Python, Terraform, Kubernetes and Pub/Sub to run event-based data pipelines, processing millions of new data points every day on the Google Cloud Platform.
  • We’re rolling out new features multiple times a day through fully automated Infrastructure as Code and CI/CD pipelines, including code reviews and automated tests.
  • We take responsibility for the full DevOps cycle, but thanks to managed cloud services and automation, we spend most of our time actually working on new features and architecture optimisations, rather than responding to ops issues.

And if this sounds like an exciting environment to work in, we haven’t even mentioned benefits like standby flying for your work/life balance yet. Let’s talk!
