Our goal is to listen, engage, and activate voices across Red Ventures to ensure that all identity groups and perspectives are represented in our work. Our aspiration is to have diverse teams at every level of the company, and we seek candidates who bring unique personal experiences, curiosity and an eagerness to embrace diversity, equity, and inclusion.

At a Glance

The Data Platform Analytics team sits on our Red Platform team, where we provide critical data for our products and end users while also providing hands-on consulting and solutioning internally and externally. You will be responsible for building these data processing pipelines end to end that power our product’s machine learning capabilities and optimization solutions. You will also be responsible for creating holistic data models of the data these products produce into our unified data platform for global consumption. While we work directly with the greater Red Platform team, you will also work with data engineers across the organization as we scale your contributions across the company.

Red Ventures is a high-autonomy, high-ownership environment; you’ll own your work from idea to production solution. Our data engineering tech stack is primarily AWS and Spark/Scala via Databricks, though we welcome strong applicants from a wide variety of technical backgrounds. We believe that diverse, inclusive teams are better teams. Think of the bullets below as guidelines: if you only partially meet the qualifications on this posting, we encourage you to apply anyway! 

What You'll Do

  • Iterate- Red tape doesn’t get in our way. We believe that "Speed Trumps Perfection" so we test and deploy daily.
  • Autonomy– Aspiring entrepreneurs succeed here because you will have full-ownership over your work from beginning to end. 
  • Collaborate– Better than making the dream work, teamwork makes the code work. Through open work-space, Zoom, Slack and peer reviews, our teams work together to build amazing solutions.
  • Innovate – With the belief that “Everything is Written in Pencil”, we encourage our teams to test new frameworks, learn new languages and challenge the “status quo” to make us better.

Tactically, a typical project may have components like these:

  • Be involved in initial product roadmapping and/or feature prioritization to provide perspective and expertise on the best way to leverage our data in conjunction with our data analysts
  • Design and build data pipelines from dozens of sources to data warehouse using batch or incremental loading strategies utilizing cutting edge cloud technologies
  • Create utility out of our data by automating common-place ETL for the entirety of the organization.
  • Conceptualize and generate infrastructure that allows data to be accessed quickly and efficiently for our products and end users.
  • Document design including data modeling, metadata, and process flow for product integrations
  • Be integral to product launches and deliveries, ensuring our brands and partners have the appropriate level of support to access and leverage the data products you built.

What We're Looking For

  • Experience performing production data engineering/ETL work in a language such as Python, Scala, Kotlin, or Go
  • SQL experience in any flavor (Postgres, SQLServer, RDS, etc.)
  • Experience with one of the major cloud providers (we use AWS but we welcome candidates with experience in Azure or GCP)
  • Experience with one of the major data warehousing solutions (we use Redshift but we welcome candidates with experience in Snowflake, Oracle or Teradata)
  • Experience working on code orchestration (eg., AWS Step Function / Airflow)
  • Strong analytical and interpersonal skills
  • Able to work through ambiguity in a fast-paced, dynamically changing business environment
  • Enjoys getting to build from scratch and bringing new ideas to life
  • Able to work effectively across multiple functional groups between technical and non-technical contributors
