Every Sunday, we have a half million of our closest friends over to our place to watch the game and, well maybe, we make a few friendly bets – actually, we usually make about 3 million of them.

Our customers see odds, lines, spreads, play-by-play updates, deposits, and withdrawals.

We see only data, data, data, data, data, and data.  Each contest generates tens of millions of individual data points that have to be collected, combined, understood, and acted on.  All at the speed of the game. No time-outs.

This is not a sports job.  This is a data job. 

(The jocks work for the nerds now.)

 

THE POSITION

Data drives our organization.  As a Senior Data Engineer at FanDuel, you will help us unlock the full potential of our vast amounts of real-time and relational data, provide our business with insight, and delight our customers with a world-class personalized experience.  You will help us turn every click our users make, every bet, every touchdown, every fumble, and every play into a real-time stream of knowledge allowing us to make better and faster decisions – outplaying our competition.

In this role, you will partner with the engineering teams building our online applications, data scientists mining our data and training our models, and our analysts who make the data mean something.  You will help us organize, model, and present our data as a coherent product and offer it to our stakeholders, providing a common information framework that allows FanDuel to intelligently react to what is happening on the field and in the marketplace.   

We are looking for Data Engineers of all skill levels or experienced engineers from other disciplines who may be looking to make the move to a big data environment.  If this describes you, read on – we want to hear from you!

 

THE GAME PLAN

Skills you have now or will quickly develop a deep understanding for:

  • Building ETL/ELT pipelines using Python and Databricks  
  • Modeling and querying data using SQL and DBT
  • Orchestrating data workflows with Apache Airflow
  • Processing large workloads using distributed data systems such as Redshift, Athena, Spectrum, Spark, Hadoop, and Trino
  • Processing real-time streaming workloads with distributed event systems such as Kafka and Kinesis
  • Designing and maintaining production database systems leveraging your knowledge of different types of data stores, their use cases, trade-offs, performance, and limitations
  • Implementing data lake, warehouse, and lakehouse architectures leveraging your knowledge of data archiving and retrieval solutions and their relationship to access vs. cost
  • Leadership and teaching within a cross-functional team, embodying a willingness to grow and to grow those around you and actively seek continued learning opportunities.

Things you will get exposure to:

  • Machine learning and data science
  • Business intelligence tools (e.g., Tableau, Knime, Looker)
  • Data security and privacy (e.g. GDPR, CPP)
  • Data governance and data testing frameworks (e.g., Alation, Great Expectations)
  • Continuous integration and delivery of production data products
  • An inclusive culture that expects excellence and priorities your growth as an engineer and your well-being as a person

As you grow at FanDuel, you will:

  • Advance your career within well-defined, skill-based tracks, either as an individual contributor or as a manager – both providing equal opportunities for compensation and advancement
  • Apply your experience and intellect as part of an autonomous team with end-to-end ownership of key components of our data architecture 
  • Serve as a mentor to more junior engineers not only in cultivating craftsmanship but also in achieving operational excellence – system reliability, automation, data quality, and cost-efficiency

Data engineering is a rapidly changing field – most of all,  we’re looking for someone who enjoys experimenting, keeping their finger on the pulse of current data engineering tools, and always thinking about how to do something better.
