The Mission:

This is a critical and exciting time at Enigma.  We are hearing from repeated customers that our product is creating tremendous value for them and is aligned perfectly with their needs.  This creates an urgent need to invest in the ML-driven data pipelines at the core of our small business data product.

We are looking for an experienced Senior Software Engineer to join our Small Business Data team.  You will play a central role in architecting and developing the data pipelines that incorporate statistical models to transform raw data into the small business profiles our customers depend on.

The Role:

As a Senior Software Engineer for our Small Business Data team, you will build systems that transform billions of records into authoritative small business profiles--this includes over $10 trillion in credit card transactions!  Your impact will be measured by the reliability, maintainability and efficiency of our data pipelines and our ability to rapidly productionize our research findings.

We’re looking for someone who:

  • Thrives on a collaborative, supportive cross-functional team of software engineers, product managers and data scientists
  • Excels in multiple aspects of engineering including design decisions, hands-on implementation and technical mentorship
  • Engineers model-driven data pipelines that reliably transform billions of records from dozens of sources into accurate small business profiles (we use Airflow and Spark)
  • Architects complex data pipelines around a central ontology to support multiple concurrent pipeline versions
  • Designs systems that allow data scientists to reliably productionize their research discoveries
  • Prides themselves on writing highly readable, thoroughly tested software (we use Python)

What makes this job interesting?

  • Technical Challenge: You will build and extend a sophisticated data pipeline with predictive models embedded at multiple stages.  You’ll need to simultaneously balance system reliability, scalability, rigorous data quality requirements and an ambitious forward development plan
  • Ownership: As a senior member of our core data engineering team, you will help set the technical direction and execution of the core systems of our product
  • Impact: You will design and implement systems for producing small business profiles which feed directly into our customers decision engines (influencing businesses that employ half the U.S. workforce!)

Our ideal candidate:

  • Has 4+ years of software engineering experience
  • Enjoys collaborating with cross-functional partners (product managers, data scientists, other engineers) to set clear expectations and solve common problems
  • Has a strong track record of successfully designing and implementing reliable data pipelines on heterogeneous data sources at scale
  • Is driven to work with customers to have an impact on the real world

Bonus points if you:

  • Have experience working on entity resolution challenges at scale
