Senior Software Engineer (Data Science)

Auckland, New Zealand · Development

Description

We’re building out our dev team and are looking for backend engineers, specifically someone with experience working with Data Scientists to understand and implement complex Data Science projects. We work on a modern, streaming stack backed by Kafka and Elasticsearch with Python microservices using Docker, Kubernetes and Helm to deploy.

We fetch event and entity data from a number of sources (entities include things like venues, sports teams, musicians and more) and publish the data to our processing pipelines. Each step in the pipelines do a specific task like standardising, filtering for things like spam, deduplicating, geocoding the data and filling in missing information. Data quality is of the utmost importance. You may not have experience with all of the technologies mentioned above so our dev team will help and support you to bring you up to speed.

As well as the data processing pipelines, we have a number of other projects involving large portions of Data Science and some big plans in our roadmap. This is not a role for the faint hearted, it is challenging, complex and requires innovative thinking.

You will be working within a business that is focused on a shared vision of growing globally and continuing to deliver a unique platform across a diversified set of customers. This role will be immensely rewarding and you will be working alongside an experienced and passionate team who have been involved in starting up businesses that now employ hundreds of staff across the world.

The team is growing fast and we’re moving to our new office by Britomart early March!
