What you'll do
Data quality and integrity are two areas of focus for your work in our existing, organically-grown data infrastructure. You would be helping to grow the data engineering team which builds technology for developers to use. Developers across the organization rely on data to accomplish their goals, and you will lead the team building libraries, utilities, and services to help developers more readily access, understand, and benefit from our data. Depending on the project, this might involve collaboration with the Data Science and Content Engineering teams to identify business-critical Hive tables, or working with Core Platform to suggest better approaches for scaling streaming data sets. Almost everything you would be working on would be to increase the "customer satisfaction" for internal engineering customers of Scribd data.
