We're looking for a data engineer to join our product development team. We are a small and fast moving team of 5 developers, and we've built a highly automated platform to take the whole process of selling an apartment online.
Blok is a modern real estate agency for residential properties. Our goal at Blok is to provide transparent and cost-efficient service. At the core, we’re a technology company, and we recognise that winning in this market requires us to augment the best real estate agents with the best technology. We are currently operating in Finland and Sweden.
Currently, we are putting our biggest efforts on our service for buyers, a new kind of marketplace where people are able to look for apartments that are not even on sale and we'll find them. Our stack consists of Python (Django framework) and our databases speak SQL. For data engineering and data science we use Python, R and SQL.
As a data engineer, you'd be working on both the direct product development by building databases and backend systems for our products and the business analytics by building data pipelines, dashboards and other analyses to support our operative decision making.
