How do you like to make an impact?
Think back to your last job. Were you able to run with projects from start to finish, to truly choose each next step? Enova managers empower you to make your own decisions and drive your work. That could mean anything from taking the lead on the development of a new mobile app, to determining the best way to help a customer break down their loan payments. When we talk to our team members, they tell us their managers trust them to get the job done. Where else can your voice be heard Day One? We want you to make your mark. This is the core of Enova.

About the role:

This role is an opportunity to make a real difference in the data space. Enova already has a Data Warehouse that provides needed data to Analytics and the Executive Team. Our Data Engineering Team is in the midst of updating how data is handled so that data found to be useful can be immediately used in Underwriting Decisions in production. The change will be nothing less than revolutionary, and we need confident, experienced people eager to make a difference, with a demonstrated ability to learn fast in order to make that happen.

What you'll be doing:

  • Develop new ways of moving, transforming, and checking data using Python and Go, and using available tools such as Kafka, AWS Batch and Lambdas, Debezium, and available transform engines in Alooma and Snowflake.
  • Work closely with the Analytics team to understand their pain points and work with the team, other teams in Software Engineering, and the Infrastructure / Deployment teams to develop solutions that address them.
  • Serve as an advocate for best practices and standards for data and database related efforts -- including how best to structure schemas, write queries, and use tools such as Kafka, Snowflake, and AWS SNS/SQS, AWS Aurora, and AWS Elasticsearch, and AWS Redis.
  • Provide recommendations on how best to handle storing and updating dataset metadata and handling long-term data catalog, lineage, and governance needs.
  • Mentor and develop other engineers through best practice knowledge sharing. 

We're excited about you if you have:

  • 5+ years of experience in software engineering with a focus on database related technologies.
  • Deep technical knowledge of SQL and database related technologies, particularly PostgreSQL.
  • Understanding of relational database modeling principles and techniques.
  • Exposure to various non-relational / NoSQL database management systems.
  • Experience with AWS.
  • Experience with Snowflake, Debezium, or Kafka.
  • Experience working on ETL or ELT solutions with stakeholders.
  • The ability to orchestrate and schedule tooling such as Jenkins, Airflow or Rundeck.
  • Proficiency with one or more programming languages.
  • A Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Engineering or equivalent experience.

How does the company support your career growth?

Enova supported my career/growth with training when I started. In baseline, the training program for new software engineers, we were given the time to learn before joining a team. It was great to have dedicated time just focused on learning and getting acclimated to Enova before jumping into project work.
