The Role: 

You are a Data Engineer with experience in processing terabytes of data. You have experience in creating and automating scalable, fault-tolerant and reproducible data pipelines using Amazon AWS technologies. You are interested in helping to create a platform completely built on top of AWS. You are eager to join a team of Life Scientists and Software Engineers that believe the brightest minds in research should have the best tools to drive innovation.



What You’ll Do:


  • Build & operate automated ETL pipelines that process terabytes of text data nightly
  • Develop service frontends around our various backend datastores (AWS Aurora MySQL, Elasticsearch, S3)
  • Perform technical analyses and requirements specification with our product team on data service integrations
  • Help customers bring their data to the platform


What You Know:


Must Haves:


  • Python 3 or Java programming experience, preferably both
  • Day-to-day experience using AWS technologies such as Lambda, ECS Fargate, SQS, & SNS
  • Experience building and operating cloud-native data pipelines
  • Experience extracting, processing, storing, and querying of petabyte-scale datasets
  • Familiarity with building and using containers
  • Familiarity with event-based microservices




  • Prior experience with Elasticsearch (custom development and/or administration) is a huge plus
  • Prior work with text and natural-language processing
  • Knowledge of Graph databases


What do we love in team members?


Your specialization is less important than your ability to learn fast and adapt to shifting technologies. We’re especially fond of people who:


  • Focus on customer’s needs and our company’s goals, not just writing code
  • Iterate until customers love what you’ve built
  • Self-start and initiate
  • Self-organize
  • Strive to grow personally and professionally, beyond just expanding technical abilities
  • Love to experiment with new technology and share knowledge with the team
