Data Engineer

About the Role

YOUR ROLE AS DATA ENGINEER We are looking for software developers that are ready to "get their hands dirty" for building a better world (of data, at least), one where information is clean and easily accessible; to achieve such goals is not easy, one should be strict but pragmatic, open-minded but skilled on troubles that are common when dealing with data. We are a multicultural team that loves collaboration, we trust and respect each other, we are "agile enough" and, hard to believe, we all love data. If you are an independent data hacker who wants to work in a young and positive environment we want to hear from you! Also have a look at our recent blog post about what a data engineer does in SpazioDati.

Requirements

  • You have a B.S. or M.S. in Computer Science or a related field, or equivalent experience;

  • you are a quick thinker, a problem-solver, who feels comfortable writing code;

  • you are self-organized and willing to work in a fast-paced environment;

  • you take code quality seriously: continuous integration, testing, code review, linters.


Nice to have:

  • you have previous experience maintaining and developing data-intensive, mission-critical workflows

  • you have good experience with data storages, such as relational databases (PostgreSQL) and search engines (ElasticSearch);

  • you feel at home with python and JVM-based languages (Java, Scala, Groovy) both for scripting and complex, object-oriented environments;

  • you have experience with Big Data technologies (Apache Spark, Apache Kafka);

  • you know how to write REST APIs.
