The Role

As a Software Engineer at Striveworks you’ll be challenged—and trusted—on day one to be a core contributor to the projects and direction of the company.

You’re right for this challenge if you value and possess technical expertise and you push the boundaries of your own capabilities. In this vital work, you will design and implement data platform components such as data catalog, data lake, and data warehouse. You will automate workflows and focus on last-mile integration for data platform components. You will focus on ETL framework design and implementation, batch and stream processing, application CI/CD, and polyglot persistence. You’ll have the opportunity to take the models and algorithms developed by data scientists and optimize, deploy, and refine them in a real-world setting immediately.

The Right Fit

Purehearted geniuses. How do you know you’re a purehearted genius? Easy: you persevere relentlessly to achieve your goals. You know the team has the same goals as you, and you make and accept decisions for the team with humility. Your say/do ratio is 1. Your “acceptable” is what others call “excellence.” You know that there is no smartest person in the room. Fit all those? We’re already on the same page. Here’s what else we’re looking for:

  • 5+ years relevant experience
  • Driven, self-directed personality
  • Strong sense of mission and commitment to making a difference
  • Ability to design, implement, and document scalable code
  • Knowledge of database design and architecture: relational, document, embedding, graph
  • Comfort with commercial clouds
  • Experience with standard tooling: CI/CI tools, Git, Docker
  • Experience with distributed compute and storage
  • Experience with Python, JavaScript
  • Experience building batch and streaming ETL pipelines with Python or SQL
  • Knowledge of data pipeline technologies, especially Apache Spark/Kafka/Beam
  • Experience with data platform components like data catalogs and data orchestrators
  • Strong experience with building data lakes and/or data warehouses
  • Willingness and ability to travel OCONUS (up to 20%) for customer engagements
  • Current or willingness to obtain Security+ Certification
  • Active Top Secret Security Clearance

The Wish List

We’re very interested in Software Engineers that possess the above qualifications, and heavily appreciate and consider the addition of experience with:

  • Big Data with high volume, velocity, and variety
  • Data Orchestrators like Airflow, Dagster, Prefect, or Flyte
  • Big Data DBs like Snowflake, Redshift, or BigQuery
  • Data platforms like Dataiku, Databricks, or Alteryx
