Data Engineering Intern

| Austin

Square Root is built on understanding our customers' data more deeply than they do. We’re looking for a data engineering intern to join our quest to make data management an ever-greater differentiator for us. You should be eager to learn, able to adapt and perfect your work, + willing to seek out help and put it to good use. You’ll work alongside our data and infrastructure engineering teams to assist with the build and release tasks, testing automation for data quality, + get to do the fun stuff like data analysis. Having tech chops will serve you well here as we use a range of tools and technologies: Looker, Snowflake, etc. to help us make sense of messy data.

This is a full-time paid internship for Summer 2019. The actual day to day will ultimately be shaped around the intern’s individual interests and skill sets. We plan to provide an environment of learning and mentorship + our intern will be in a position to have a real impact at Square Root. If this is your kind of challenge - apply today!

An Insider's view of Square Root

What projects are you most excited about?

I find our Move a Metric projects really exciting at Square Root. We work with clients to identify a key metric to improve. Using a combination of data science and technology we formulate a plan to help the client move that metric in a positive direction. Through this program, we’re able to show strong business value.

Jessica

Customer Success Director

How does the company support your career growth?

Career goals at Square Root are supported by mentorship, a learn anything budget (that really is for learning anything!), and regular 1x1's with our CEO to talk about anything! More than that, though, we have a team that supports growth by always providing new and different opportunities to develop skills and show off ones you've gained.

Mary

Marketing Manager

What are some social events your company does?

Square Root invests in work/life balance. They take care to include my family regularly in events like holiday parties, the family picnic, happy hour invites, and much more. When they do, the attention to detail and care to make the moment special for us really makes an impact. It isn’t just checking a box.
