As a Data Engineer on experimentation you should be familiar with supporting Experimentation or structured ETL frameworks, and should leverage that knowledge to inform your design decisions and implementations.

  • Developed or enhanced ETL orchestrations tools
  • Used statistical optimization techniques to reduce overall computation complexity
  • Worked within standard GitOps workflow (branch and merge, PRs, CI / CD systems)
  • Familiarity with infrastructure configuration (IaC [e.g. Terraform], cluster parameter tuning, service parameter tuning)

You Will:

  • Design an extensible and scalable data model to support the experimental analysis and reporting
  • Design, build, and maintain efficient and reliable data pipelines in batch and streaming to fuel the core data sets
  • Build ETL Frameworks to scale and extend the sheer volume of experiments that are processed
  • Analyze the use cases for the data to determine appropriate SLAs
  • Analyze the incoming data and upstream pipelines to determine and minimize epistemological issues.
  • Determine appropriate relaxations to deterministic compute where appropriate and leverage probabilistic data structures (bloom filters, count min sketch)
  • Partner with the Data Platform Team to provide approximation algorithms (approximate nearest neighbor, etc.) for high use statistics of interest.
  • Determine optimal caching strategies and eviction policies to support cost effective analysis
  • Drive adoption of the Core Data tables and publicize new incoming datasets to ensure consistency across the organization
