  • Must advocate for focus on technical debt in concert with execution of new features, and has an understanding that doing so allows our team to scale with the demands placed upon us in a stable and robust manner.
  • Be passionate about programming and learning new technologies; focused on helping themselves and the team improve their skills.
  • Must be comfortable with and supporting other other engineering teams by contributing to our service oriented architecture.
What you need
  • 4+ years of experience within the field of data engineering or related technical work.
  • Proven experience with Python. Understanding of Go.
  • Experience with data warehousing and data pipeline tools (examples being Snowflake and Airflow).
  • Exposure to principles of automated testing and commitment to testing as a way of producing robust code.
  • Experience with Git and understanding of our basic workflow (branching for your own work; pull requests to commit work back).
  • Experience with Unix on the command-line, whether via terminal in MacOS or directly on a version of Linux/*BSD, is greatly valued.
We’d love to have you aboard

An Insider's view of Built In

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Good vibes are a top priority around here. You'll hear music played from our playlist that the entire company co-builds, you'll see a movie streaming on TV and, if you catch us at lunch, you'll see the entire office sitting at our communal table. We work hard every day but we always make time to spend together.

I spend most of my days collaborating on cross-functional projects to improve customer outcomes. We want to drive as much value as possible for our customers and our customer success team is the best in the business. I learn something new every day, and I work with intelligent and curious humans.

Arit

Director, Customer Success

What are some things you learned at the company?

It’s pretty remarkable to experience an entire company operating as one team. At Built In, we tackle problems and achieve goals together, sharing in the responsibility of successes and downfalls alike.

Alyssa

SEO Strategist

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

The new business team has a big impact on strategy, so it’s important to cultivate creativity and innovation. In our “Idea Friday" meetings, we share new ways to sell — and “anything goes.” The ideas can be great or totally unrealistic, because it’s about sparking creativity. The best part is that some of these ideas have shaped our strategy.

Emma

VP, Sales

How does the company support your career growth?

Success means more here. It not only is being noticed by my team but it positively impacts Built In’s overall results. Our team is made of strong individuals working together to build our revolutionary platform.
