We're looking for someone with

  • Experience with relational and non-relational databases: Postgres/MySQL/MongoDB/BigQuery/RedShift (Cassandra, Influx, Druid are a plus)
  • Previous experience in distributed systems, data processing and analytics is a plus
  • Ability to develop and maintain robust end-to-end solutions quickly
  • Independent and self-motivated—maintaining side projects and libraries is a major plus
  • Ability to lead an engineering team and help shaping its culture
  • No requirement to speak French


  • Competitive salary
  • Significant equity
  • Flexible work hours
  • Personal growth fund (gym, courses, etc.)
  • Retreat every 6 months in a cool place
  • All the tech you need to have an impact

Lazy Lantern is an equal opportunity employer. We value and celebrate how you identify, who you love, the color of your skin, your age (at heart and on paper), the gods you do or don't believe in, and every other belief and characteristic that make you YOU. The more inclusive we are, the better we — and our work — will be.
