Who you’ll work with
You will join the engineering team (27 brilliant people!) as a Data Engineer in our growing Data Engineering squad (2 people). You’ll report to Michael and will take on many different challenges.

What you'll work on
Our main challenge this year is to make our data stack and pipelines more reliable to go from a model where data is used mainly for reporting and ad-hoc analysis to one where we can use this data in our product.
