You will partner with Product Managers to understand requirements and translate them into technology solutions with well-defined delivery milestones. In addition to the quality of features, you will measure the success of technical solutions and implementations through the enablement of our Field Teams in the ease, efficiency, and seamless integration and deployment of these solutions for our customers. You will also make and communicate technical decisions that influence their product roadmap.
You'll be successful if:
You are highly skilled in building commercial/enterprise software products, which you've gained through your 8+ years of relevant experience. If you have spent fewer than 8 years as an engineer, you have pushed yourself, investing your own time to quickly become highly skilled.

developing search engines and/or recommendations systems and familiarity with NLP and ML techniques
developing ETL tools and data management systems with knowledge of data cleansing, quality, and governance principles
working with relational databases, writing SQL, designing schemas, and optimizing queries
You are able to take uncertain requirements, ask the right questions to solidify them, and then break them down into the parts that you can build.
You enjoy coding and have a proven track record of building stable, high quality, scalable components and services using established software design patterns, and you know why they are important.
You take ownership of your deliverables and their quality. You are an advocate for Agile/Scrum methods. You and your teams always write comprehensive unit and functional tests.
You function best as part of a team and you are passionate about mentoring team members.
You are skilled at communicating your thoughts and designs to your teammates. In the spirit of continuous improvement, you provide timely and constructive feedback, and are open to receiving and acting on feedback provided to you.
You'll be amazing if you are all of the above, plus:
You are an authority in Python, and are able to use Flask to build microservices.
You have experience with performance optimization, parallelization, and distributed systems.
You have used a variety of Amazon Web Services (e.g., EC2, S3, EMR, Lambda) to solve technical problems.
You think continuous integration and monitoring is important, and have worked with tools such as Jenkins, NewRelic, and Sentry.
