Data Engineer

| Austin
A Cloud Guru is the world's leading provider of online IT education. We focus on providing high-quality, affordable and engaging on-demand video courses to hundreds of thousands of professionals. We help our students learn new skills, gain valuable industry certifications, and excel in their careers.
It’s an exciting time at A Cloud Guru - we’ve taught over 600,000 students since our inception 3 years ago; received US venture capital funding with a recent $2M raise in May; and we're now focusing on building out our B2B feature set and product offering. 
We have ambitious goals for the year ahead and we need a Data Engineer to join our team to help us deliver on our goals.
What we're after
Your mission as a Data Engineer is to help deliver insight into the business. Your role as a Data Engineer will see you managing our data infrastructure including pipelines and warehouses, building data testing frameworks, and building reporting layer infrastructure.
You're someone that enjoys taking ownership of problems and working to deliver projects including non-technical delivery. You enjoy playing a part in helping set technical direction and delivering solutions. 
You're also a creative and open-minded person that really loves what they do and takes pride in their work supporting the team. Being able to collaborate with others on projects is as important to us as your ability to write code.

From the get go, you'll be responsible for:

  • Build out a semantic/reporting layer to enable business to develop own reporting
  • Build automated data reconciliation reports
  • Build out data testing/alerting framework - to detect data quality, application or business issues early
  • Automate deployment of reporting layer

The technical skills you'll need to be proficient are:

  • Manage data warehouse infrastructure
  • Build ETL pipelines
  • Develop application integrations
  • Develop data testing/alerting framework
  • Develop automated data reconciliation framework
  • Design reporting layer (star schema)
  • Automate reporting layer creation using a tool such as DBT
  • Can write SQL
  • Familiar with AWS, CloudFormation, Redshift, EC2 & VPC and Kinesis Firehose

Working with us
Our people matter to us. We know everyone has family and friends and for that reason our employees receive 4 weeks of leave each year. We understand that time away from work is important and we know well-rested and well-rounded people make better decisions...and ultimately are more productive when at work!
We pay commensurate with experience and we make sure you’re looked after.
Our crew
Our team is spread across the globe - mainly the US and Australia. This role will be based out of our shiny new Austin office!
We prefer hands on collaboration so this position is not available for remote workers. Unfortunately we're unable to sponsor people into the US at this time.
We are a fast-growing team with big ambitions. We need people who can help us build a solid foundation for the future. If you want to make a difference in a fast-growing team, now is the time to join.

An Insider's view of A Cloud Guru

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The vibe here is a reflection of the people – laid back, casual, and most of all, jovial. No workplace is ever going to be the same as home, but here there is a similar level of comfort. Folks are exceptionally welcoming and willing to help out where they can. Humor is necessary to get through the work day, and we've got that in spades here.

There is a ton of awesome new stuff in the works for our enterprise offering, Teams, and I can’t wait to continue to help businesses and enterprises in their cloud adoption journey. 2019 is going to be a big year!
