Overview

We’re hiring a Data Engineer to join our growing Data Engineering Team to elevate Glossier as an inviting, fun way to buy beauty products. You’ll join a team focused on building a delightful e-commerce and in-store experience, and fostering the most welcoming community to discuss skin care and makeup.
 
At Glossier, we work in product teams that ship features to production early, then iterate based on internal and customer feedback. We pay attention to performance, write tests for our code, and care about design. We are also mindful of building an inclusive culture, where decisions are made transparently and we support each other's learning and growth. Data is a critical component at Glossier and ensuring consistent, reliable access to our data for the entire company continues to be a significant priority.

Our data stack

  • Python
  • Luigi for ETLs
  • AWS to host our infrastructure
  • Redshift for our data warehouse
  • Segment
  • Looker

Our Glossier.com stack

  • Ruby on Rails for the backend
  • GraphQL for our API
  • React, Redux, Webpack, and Apollo on the frontend

In this role, during your first month you’ll:

  • Roll up your sleeves by building small features and contributing to code-reviews.
  • Get to know the data scientists and BI engineers in the Data Team to contextualize our broader data strategy.

During your first three months you’ll:

  • Collaborate with data scientists, data engineers and BI engineers on the Data Team to define and deliver on our data roadmap.
  • Deploy improvements to our production data pipeline and data warehouse, and maybe break something! We have a blameless post-mortem process so that when things go wrong, we can make our systems and processes more resilient.
  • Set personal development goals with your manager, using our publicly available Engineering ladder as a guide. We have tracks for Individual Contributors and Managers, so you can grow in your career no matter where your interests lie.

During your first year you’ll:

  • Build onto our data infrastructure that empowers Glossier to make data-formed decisions and impactful data products.
  • Be a flag-bearer of our diverse and inclusive culture.
  • Make meaningful additions to a variety of projects of increasing complexity.
  • Contribute to an RFC (Request for Comments) proposal (or create your own) that improves our team's culture, processes, or architecture.
  • Give a tech talk. We hold internal talks every two weeks – it’s an opportunity for team members to show their work and present on topics relating to our practice.
  • Write a blog post on Into The Tech, our Technology team’s blog.

You

  • Have a reputation for being inclusive, innovative, clever, fun, and thoughtful. :)
  • Are excited about tackling challenging problems and building creative data solutions.
  • Find working in a fast-growing, dynamic, and iterative environment compelling.

About your application and the interview process

Glossier is an equal opportunity employer and we value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
 
If you’re unsure about your qualifications for this position, we still encourage you to apply. We’re looking for engineers who have experience, but know that not everyone’s had a chance to use the technologies in our stack. What’s most important is that you have a growth mindset, and know how to reliably ship software.
 
Our interview process typically involves a phone screen with an internal recruiter, followed by an exploratory conversation with our VP of Engineering. After that, we’ll invite you to our offices for an on-site interview on a range of technical and interpersonal topics. One of our interviews involves pair programming – we want to see what it’s like to work with you on problems you might encounter in the real world. We know that live coding can be stressful at times, and will do our best to craft a friendly and collaborative experience.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.
