Veraset, a division of SafeGraph, is looking for a Data Engineer to build, scale, and monitor pipelines that process hundreds of terabytes of geospatial data daily, to join our fast-growing team.

Veraset is a well funded, early-stage, profitable startup in the data-as-a-service space. You'll be reporting directly to the CTO.

  • You want to join a well funded, profitable, early stage data startup
  • You have a strong GTD mindset and problems in an effective and scalable way
  • You can work and communicate effectively with technical and non-technical colleagues
  • You don’t need supervision to thrive - you think in first principles, know the right questions to ask, and can develop and execute on a vision

What you’ve done:

  • You’ve spent 2-4 years experience in a technical role at a cutting-edge technology company
  • You have a strong engineering background in a technical discipline - ideally Computer Science, Engineering, Physics, Math, Data Science, or Statistics
  • You’ve built pipelines that process massive amounts - ideally hundreds of TBs - of data in the past and know your storage and analysis technologies well
  • You’ve worked tirelessly to optimize the ETL (extracting, transforming, and loading) pipelines you’ve built and can speak credibly to the challenges and solutions you’ve developed
  • You’ve become comfortable working in one of Java, Scala, or Python
  • You’ve worked with distributed system, cloud technologies, and open-source technologies like Spark, Cassandra, Kafka, Elastic Search, Airflow, Hadoop
  • You actually know SQL

What you’ll do:

  • Help architect, create, manage, and optimize Veraset’s massive, geospatial, data pipeline
  • Build analytics around the core pipeline to provide actionable insights into key metrics such as customer acquisition, data insight generation, or operational efficiency
  • Dive-deep into the data to gain key insights and proposed scope expansions to grow our business
  • Collaborate cross-functionally with our customer, sales, and product teams
  • Identify, design, and implement internal process improvements: automating manual processes, optimizing data delivery, re-designing infrastructure for greater scalability, etc...
  • Work with our leadership to help craft the direction of the data and architecture at Veraset
  • Contribute to building out the software engineering team at Veraset
  • Own your destiny - Investigate, propose, and action your ideas to help us achieve our potential as a business

  • Veraset is a B2B company that sells data to data scientists and machine learning engineers
  • Our mission is to gather, curate, and deliver high-quality data to innovators in the Fortune 10, startups, and the public sector. Customers have used our data to:
