Developer Platform - Data Platform

WeWork is one of the few companies that has a real application for Internet of Things technology. Our buildings and offices benefit from having sensors and devices to improve the user experience. Imagine a world where you can go into any WeWork property, tap your badge, and watch your desk automatically conform to you: the desk height can raise to match your height, the computer monitor can adjust to the angle of your sightline, and even your preferred operating system will load up on the monitor in front of you. All of this will need to be powered by a robust data platform that can process and analyze data at immense scale.

The Data Platform team’s mission is to envision, build, and deploy the next generation platform for data ingestion, processing, storage, scheduling, and analysis to provide leverage for all of the business lines within The We Company.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

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.
