Senior Data Engineer

Location: San Francisco, CA

As a Senior Data Engineer you will collaborate with other engineers and data scientists to develop and maintain the machine learning (ML) data pipeline powering Restless Bandit’s talent-rediscovery products. Your days will involve architecting, improving, and customizing Restless Bandit’s ML infrastructure based on well-established data-processing systems like Hadoop or while also staying on top of the latest developments in big-data computation platforms.


We work hard, but at the same time we have a laid-back, fun work environment. Some of the values that are important to us are:

– Helpfulness: we appreciate receiving help as well as giving it, and learning from each other as well as sharing knowledge and opinions.

– Professionalism: we trust each other and assume independence and autonomy along with responsibility.

– Curiosity: we’re interested in new ideas and alternative viewpoints; we prefer having our minds’ changed by a discussion to ‘winning’ a debate.

– Relaxedness: we believe that consistent unhurried problem-solving produces better solutions than frantic ‘fire drills.’

– Fun: we’re thick as thieves. We have lunch together every day, host regular (and spontaneous) happy hours, and participate in professional meet-ups.
