Principal Data Engineer

Salary Competitive
At Signifyd we’re creating a new market. We’re constantly improving and expanding the technology that has changed what fraud protection for ecommerce looks like. So we don’t have time for office politics. We understand that different people have different work styles and we thrive on variety while learning from each other. We’re all Signifyers, so we know that what needs to get done will get done.

Signifyd is a place where no one is going to tell you how to do your job. If you want help, you'll get it — from all quarters. But we pretty much figure out what needs to be done, who's in the best position to do it and then let that person roll-up her or his sleeves and have at it. We're protecting retailers from online fraud in a way that's never been done before and we could use your help. 


Oh, and a few particulars for this role:

  • Optimising the ETL pipeline solutions and data warehouse


You’ll also love:

  • Mentoring and coach more junior members of the scrum team

  • Enforcing Signifyd quality standards on code reviews, provide feedback that raises the quality of the resulting code, and mentor peers through the review

  • Contributing to the Signifyd engineering culture and ensure that any inefficiencies and wasteful processes are highlighted and addressed


Experience we need:
