Senior Data Engineer (remote)

Toronto, Ontario, Canada, Canada

Data Engineers develop modern data architecture approaches to meet key business objectives and provide end-to-end data solutions. You might spend a few weeks with a new client on a deep technical review or a complete organizational review, helping them to understand the potential that data brings to solve their most pressing problems. On other projects, you might be acting as the architect, leading the design of technical solutions or perhaps overseeing a program inception to build a new product. It could also be a software delivery project where you're equally happy coding and tech-leading the team to implement the solution.

Job responsibilities

  • You will partner with teammates to create complex data processing pipelines in order to solve our clients' most complex challenges
  • You will collaborate with Data Scientists in order to design scalable implementations of their models
  • You will pair to write clean and iterative code based on TDD
  • Leverage various continuous delivery practices to deploy, support and operate data pipelines
  • Advise and educate clients on how to use different distributed storage and computing technologies from the plethora of options available
  • Develop and operate modern data architecture approaches to meet key business objectives and provide end-to-end data solutions
  • Create data models and speak to the tradeoffs of different modeling approaches
  • Seamlessly incorporate data quality into your day-to-day work as well as into the delivery process
  • Assure effective collaboration between Thoughtworks' and the client's teams, encouraging open communication and advocating for shared outcomes

Job qualifications

Technical skills

  • You have a good understanding of data modeling and experience with data engineering tools and platforms such as Kafka, Spark, and Hadoop
  • You have built large-scale data pipelines and data-centric applications using any of the distributed storage platforms such as HDFS, S3, NoSQL databases (Hbase, Cassandra, etc.) and any of the distributed processing platforms like Hadoop, Spark, Hive, Oozie, and Airflow in a production setting
  • Hands on experience in MapR, Cloudera, Hortonworks and/or cloud (AWS EMR, Azure HDInsights, Qubole etc.) based Hadoop distributions
  • You are comfortable taking data-driven approaches and applying data security strategy to solve business problems
  • Working with data excites you: you can build and operate data pipelines, and maintain data storage, all within distributed systems
  • You're genuinely excited about data infrastructure and operations with a familiarity working in cloud environments

Professional skills

  • You're resilient and flexible in ambiguous situations and enjoy solving problems from technical and business perspectives
  • An interest in coaching, sharing your experience and knowledge with teammates
  • You enjoy influencing others and always advocate for technical excellence while being open to change when needed
  • Presence in the external tech community: you willingly share your expertise with others via speaking engagements, contributions to open source, blogs and more
