About Calm

We have a simple mission at Calm: To make the world a happier and healthier place.   The heart of Calm is digital but the brand is expanding offline into a variety of products and services that bring more peace, clarity and perspective into people’s busy lives.

The company is profitable and headquartered in San Francisco, CA.   Calm was co-founded by Alex Tew (Million Dollar Homepage) and Michael Acton Smith (Mind Candy, Moshi Monsters, Firebox).     Mission   We are currently building and supporting state-of-the-art data system using SQS, Firehose, Spark, Redshift, and Airflow, that is run in the cloud on AWS, deployed via Docker and Kubernetes, and has a codebase written with Go, Python, and SQL.  We are looking for a data engineer who can help us define, design, build, and optimize our data ecosystem.  You will help us integrate different data sources, improve the efficiency, reliability, and latency of our data system, help automate data pipelines, and improve our data model and overall architecture.  We are looking for someone who has experience working with data scientists and understands how to support their needs.  We are also looking for someone who is keenly aware of and motivated by driving business value.  Calm has an extremely data-driven culture and your work will be critical to our success as a company.   You can read more about our interview process, our engineering organization, and what we've worked on recently.   Outcomes
