Senior Data Engineer

About the Role

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 solving problems 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 a data hacker who wants to work in a challenging and positive environment, we want to hear from you! Also have a look at our blog post about what a data engineer does in SpazioDati.


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

  • you have 5+ years of previous experience maintaining and developing data-intensive, mission-critical workflows

  • you have strong 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 for complex, object-oriented environments;

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

  • 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;

  • you have a working knowledge of the Italian language, or are willing to learn it.

  • If possible, include a github account, some code you've written, an open source project you contributed to, or at least a link to your work that you like (it doesn't matter if it's completely unrelated like a videogame, an art project or whatever else).
