We're looking for a Data Engineer

The Data Engineer works on the back-end of our platform, focused on building data pipelines to that power our Candidate Recommendation Engine (CRE) and other aspects of our business. This work is often done with Python and intersects with the core backend that is written in Go; knowledge of both would be preferable, but Python is required. All Data Engineers should follow our engineering standards, including a commitment to unit-testing and to SOLID design principles.

How you'll contribute

  • Ownership of Built In’s Data Pipeline; this is the data that we pull from LinkedIn, from GitHub, and any other third-party service.
  • Must collaborate with other members of the engineering team, whether as mentor or mentee—especially via pair-programming.
  • Is primarily expected to be an individual contributor, focused on writing and reviewing code.
  • Works with other members of the team with kindness and objectivity, and understands that there is no place for condescension and negativity in a functional team.
  • 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.

What you need

  • Proven experience with Python. Understanding of Go.
  • 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

The team members we’re looking to hire will work out of our office at 203 N LaSalle located in the beautiful city of Chicago. We offer health, dental, and vision insurance benefits, commuter benefits, 401(k) match, casual dress, catered lunch (Monday - Thursday) and cold brew coffee on tap.

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.
