About us:

At Fitbit, our mission is to help people lead healthier, more active lives by empowering them with data, inspiration and guidance to reach their goals.

We started our journey in 2007—as a team of two with one big idea. Today, that idea has become a movement. Our culture combines the spirit of startup with the perks of being public. As part of our team, you’ll have the opportunity to grow your career, contribute your ideas to life-changing products and services, and—above all—have fun doing it.

In our Fitbit development office in Minsk we are looking to keep growing and this role will be fundamental to the continued success of Fitbit as we build exciting new products and services.

About the role:

The Data Platform team is responsible for making the vast amounts of data at Fitbit accessible to teams across the organization. We are also responsible for supporting the compute layer on top of the data which enables clients of the platform to build features and perform analysis on that data.

We spend our time working with internal clients like product managers, data scientists, data analysts and other engineers to understand their data needs as well as the teams that own the data.

Currently we leverage a lot of open source technology like Spark, Hive, Presto, Kafka and more. However, we also believe that Fitbit has a lot of unique problems that require us to think creatively outside of what the open source world can provide.

Developer: We write lots of code. You'll be writing high-performance software that's responsible for moving data between our various data storage tiers.

Consultant: We work closely with the data providers and data consumers to ensure their needs are met. We are only successful if our clients are successful.

Leader: We need to be vocal about our experiences to internal teams as well as the outside world through blog posts, presentations and open source contributions.
