Simon Data was founded in 2015 by a team of successful serial entrepreneurs. We're a data-first marketing platform startup, and we approach our work seriously; we tackle problems in a scrappy and disruptive fashion, yet we build for scale to support our clients at big data volume.
Our culture is rooted in organizational transparency, empowering individuals, and an attitude of getting things done. If you want to be a valuable contributor on a team that cultivates these core values we would love to hear from you.
We believe that success comes from knowing where your work connects into the business and being surrounded by a team that supports you and encourages you to succeed. Architects at Simon are adept in integrating the business challenge, the technology, and the team and are responsible simultaneously for maintaining the high-level context and the low-level execution that makes our product great.
As an architect at Simon, you will work across sprint teams to provide technical guidance, build out significant areas of the product, participate in Simon’s sprint management group, and report directly to the CTO. You’ll set the bar for senior engineering and push the business forward from a technology perspective.
