  • OLAP system experience (Clickhouse, Pinot, Druid, etc)
  • Data warehouse usage and optimization experience (Delta Lake, Hive, BigQuery, RedShift, Snowflake)
  • Scala, Java, or Python proficiency
  • Advanced Experience with RDBMS and SQL
  • Experience with automated testing for distributed systems in Spark (unit testing, end to end testing, QA, CI/CD)
  • Experience working directly with Data Scientists to productionize experimental algorithms.


  • Experience productionizing machine learning at scale and A/B testing new models: scikit-learn, tensorflow, pytorch
  • Experience working with Embedded Systems (C++)
  • Cloud systems: Amazon Web Services (AWS)
  • Experience using workflow management systems like Airflow or equivalent
  • Experience with BI tools (Looker, Superset, Tableau, Power BI, Redash, Sisense, Metabase)
  • Experience building systems with data governance
  • Experience building interfaces compatible with both Cloud and low-level IoT hardware (SWIG)
  • Experience building systems to train machine learning models at terabyte+ scale.


  • You are self-starting to work on a hyper-motivated team to take on real challenges to create real value and impact to industrial workers who suffer from the lack of tools to enhance their health and safety.
  • You want to work with A-players, where you will grow both personally and professionally while working on challenging problems.
  • Ability to think with an eye to high level architecture and the ability to execute on the steps towards those goals
