At Frame.io we look for people who can Start with Yes, Lead with Ideas Not Ego, and Get Themselves Up the Curve, but most of all we look for great people.

 

03What does the role entail?

Frame.io is seeking its first data engineer to support our growing data collection and consumption needs. As a software company serving more than 120,000 monthly active users, we’re sitting on billions of rows of activity log and transactional data, and we collect more than 300 million+ new rows each month from a variety of sources.

Collecting, cleansing, organizing, storing, and leveraging data at that scale isn’t an easy task, but we’re fortunate to have invested in a toolkit and processes that help support a robust data infrastructure. Now, we’re looking for someone to manage and improve our daily workflows for the next level of growth.

Today, we collect our data from a variety of sources, including transactional data stored in Postgres that powers our software application, activity data captured and piped through Segment, customer traits and communication data from a variety of marketing and sales tools that connect seamlessly to Segment (we leverage Zapier when they don’t), financial data from Stripe and Salesforce, and a multitude of others.

Our internal teams consume the majority of our data in Looker for BI and visualization purposes, but the data also powers personalized customer communications through a variety of sales and marketing tools and tailored onsite experiences.

Our current data team of 3 will double to 6 next year. With this growth will follow a greater demand for fresh, clean, actionable data - and that’s where you come in. Your role will be to architect, construct, and build on top of/extend our current data infrastructure to support that demand. On top of regular data pipeline creation and maintenance, you’ll partner with key stakeholders from growth, marketing, sales and product to make certain data accessible in realtime to construct even more powerful customer experiences.

If that sounds like an exciting challenge, let’s chat!

 

04How will you make an impact?

  • Supplement, augment, and standardize raw data by modeling and transforming it in our data warehouse.
  • Maintain, monitor, and test internal data pipelines for reliability and performance.
  • Continually evaluate and refine our technical data toolkit, sharing your findings and best practices with the team.
  • Connect data sources from disparate sales, marketing, and logging tools to support realtime, personalized customer experiences and communications that help grow the business.

 

05Who are you?

  • You’re passionate about the value that clean, fresh, and actionable data can unlock and you understand how your work serves an end-business purpose.
  • You care intensely about scaling your impact through a systems-based approach and have adopted tools and techniques to do so. Additionally, you can teach others how to make their own work better and more efficient.
  • You’re proactive about supporting internal data consumers and business stakeholders.
  • You’re naturally curious about business strategy and keep yourself informed of big picture company roadmaps and milestones to better support the organization.
  • You’re a forward thinker. You’re able to build for scale and create solutions that satisfy many needs rather than an individual project.

 

06Requirements

  • 3+ years experience as a data engineer, data scientist or business intelligence analyst in which you set up solid data pipelines and have extracted meaning from big data sets with little engineering support.
  • Expert knowledge of Python and SQL
  • Experience setting up and maintaining databases within AWS
  • Experience using any of the following tools strongly preferred but not required: Looker, Segment, Amplitude, Postgres, Redshift, Snowflake, BigQuery, dbt, or Apache Airflow
