Senior Data Engineer

What we’re building and why we’re building it. 

Fetch is a build-first technology company creating a rewards program to power the world. Over the last 5 years we’ve grown from 0 to 18M active users and taken over the rewards game in the US with our free app. The foundation has been laid. In the next 5 years we will become a global platform that completely transforms how people connect with brands. 

It all comes down to two core beliefs. First, that people deserve to be rewarded when they create value. If a third party directly benefits from an action you take or data you provide, you should be rewarded for it. And not just the “you get to use our product!” cop-out. We’re talkin’ real, explicit value. Fetch points, perhaps. 

Second, we also believe brands need a better and more direct connection with what matters most to them: their customers. -- Brands need to understand what people are doing, and have a direct line to be able to do something about it. Not just advertise, but ACT. Sounds nice right? 

That’s why we’re building the world’s rewards platform. A closed-loop, standardized rewards layer across all consumer behavior that will lead to happier shoppers and stronger brands.


Fetch Rewards is an equal employment opportunity employer.

The Role:

The DataOps team embodies these values and works with a laser focused objective to enable data driven services and analytics for end users, internal stakeholders, and external partners. We are looking for a Senior Data Engineer to contribute to this vision and reap the rewards of joining an exciting company in the high growth phase.

Your focus will be on developing pipeline frameworks, micro-services, and data solutions that can scale to match the company’s growth trajectory. We don't lock ourselves into particular technologies, but some we are currently using include AWS, Snowflake, Python, Spark, Lambda, CloudFormation, Docker, Kinesis, MongoDB, and Tableau. You’ll also get to join a team of talented individuals who will provide you with hands-on mentorship on topics ranging from engineering to DevOps to analytics. Success in this role requires the ability to analyze challenging problems, propose solutions under the guidance of experienced teammates, and implement designs within timeframes that keep up with business needs.

The ideal candidate:

  • Excellent Python or JavaScript (NodeJS) programming skills
  • Solid SQL skills
  • Familiarity with Unix systems, shell scripting, and Git
  • Experience with relational (SQL), non-relational (NoSQL), and/or object data stores (e.g., Snowflake, MongoDB, S3, HDFS, Postgres, Redis, DynamoDB)
  • Interest in building and experimenting with different tools and tech, and sharing your learnings with the broader organization
  • The desire to work with other teams in the organization (e.g., Development, Business Intelligence, Data Science) to build tools and solutions that support and help manage data within the Fetch ecosystem
  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science (or equivalent)
  • At least 6 years of relevant full-time work experience
  • Bonus Points:
    • Excellent written and verbal communication skills

    • Cloud engineering and DevOps skills (e.g., AWS, CloudFormation, Docker)
    • Familiarity with messaging and asynchronous technologies (e.g., SQS, Kinesis, RabbitMQ, Kafka)
    • Big data development skills (e.g., Spark, Hadoop, MPP DW)
    • Experience with visualization tools (e.g., Tableau)
