Interview Process

1. 2-part takehome project 2. Pair programming exercise



The Mission:

This is a critical and exciting time at Enigma. We’re transforming the small business financing ecosystem, and our product is gaining adoption even faster than we anticipated. This creates a new set of technical challenges for us as we continue to scale.

Over the past year we’ve made significant investments in our data infrastructure to allow engineers and data scientists to quickly deliver customer value by reliably testing and shipping changes to our data pipeline. The challenges ahead are to:

  • Think creatively to develop new ways to improve our computational efficiency, minimize storage costs and reduce overall runtime of our data pipeline
  • Build a stable platform that allows data engineers to reliably and quickly deploy, test and monitor their code
  • Setup frameworks to enable data practitioners to measure, fine-tune and release the models applied in our data pipeline as lean more heavily into LLMs

The Role:

This role is responsible for developing a data engineering and data science platform.  Your impact will be measured by:

  • Improvements to developer velocity—specifically how quickly and easily teams can iterate on, test, deploy and monitor changes to data transformations and ML models
  • Specific improvements achieved in processing time, computational cost and storage costs
  • Anticipate and respond to the emerging needs of data teams operating in a dynamic environment

We’re looking for someone who:

  • Operates with a bias for action and knows how to deliver value in the short, medium and long term
  • Is motivated to streamline and automate their own development process as well as others
  • Adopts a principled approach to difficult data processing problems and demonstrates expertise and excellence in their engineering craft
  • Operates transparently, collaboratively and with low ego—loves learning from others and having their ideas questioned and challenged

What makes this job interesting?

  • Impact: The solutions you build will determine the speed at which we can scale to build new features and take on new customers. Your work will impact the developer experience of dozens of teammates and directly contribute to the company’s bottom-line.
  • Technical Challenge: You will take on some of our thorniest technical problems and render them tractable.
  • Boundary Pushing Technology: Enigma is at the forefront of the evolution of the data ecosystem and has strong partnerships with LakeFS, Dagster and Databricks. You will have the opportunity to work on many problems for which the industry is still in the process of developing generalized solutions.

Our ideal candidate:

  • Is driven by building amazing developer experiences for data practitioners
  • Brings a clear point of view on data processing optimization, data modeling, cluster management, ML infrastructure and performance techniques
  • Has a strong track record of technical leadership to grow and scale teams
