Data Platform Engineer 3 – Python & Kafka @ Pluralsight

Job Information

Job Description:

The Data and Analytics Platform team builds our suite of products to help Pluralsight better understand its product and users through the sharing of data. We are constantly evolving and scaling our platform to empower users to share and interact with data in meaningful ways today and in the future.

You will partner with the team to create technical solutions to complex problems involving architecture, strategy, collaboration, and big data. You will contribute to powerfully move forward the development, application architecture, and strategy of systems critical to Pluralsight’s data-centric priorities.

Our current focus is on scaling our architecture to handle large volumes of entity and event data to keep the experience performant while accurately and reliably supporting our range of ingestion and consumption use cases.

Who you are:

  • You are passionate about solving complex architectural, distributed system problems that tend to involve more than just a single area of knowledge, and love collaborating with other teams to create functional solutions. You value the contributions of those around you and while you regularly provide valuable engineering leadership, you also embrace opportunities to let other team members lead and make decisions.
  • You value finding that ideal solution that balances the technical need of the system with the strategic needs of the business.
  • You feel a pragmatic urgency around delivering value to customers and see how engineering excellence unlocks our ability to deliver. Delivering to customers energizes you and your drive inspires those around you. You like working with data, and understand its value.
  • You are passionate on how data sharing can create new, rich experiences for our customers.
  • You love working across multiple technologies and learning about industry trends and effective practices.
  • You collaborate and decide on solutions with your team rather than dictate solutions to them. You prefer to use leadership and persuasion, rather than title and authority, to inspire and lead others.
  • You are a fluid communicator who is capable of speaking at a technical level or distilling complex topics down to easily consumable ideas for a less technical audience.

What you’ll own:

  • You will be responsible for the development and stewardship of the systems owned by your team, while developing a solid understanding of how we work within the greater ecosystem of engineering at Pluralsight.
  • You will help your team collaborate and responsibly respond to the needs of other teams and the overall system.
  • Research and identify better ways to solve problems including the identification and use of industry trends, improving application architecture and improving ways of working.
  • You will work with leaders and your Product Manager to discover, plan and strategize and prioritize around the most impactful work to be done.

Experience you’ll need:

  • Bachelors Degree in computer science, engineering or any field is required
  • 6+ years of related or equivalent experience in a similar role
  • Experience with any one of the programming languages – Scala, Java, Python.
  • Good Experience with Kafka is required
  • Strong Experience in data processing and validation.
  • Good Knowledge with Relational databases (SQL, Oracle, MySQL. etc) and data-warehouse.
  • Decent understanding of data quality concepts, data profiling, and data cleansing techniques.
  • Experience with data-quality tools and frameworks is a big plus
  • Passion to work with data and a commitment to data quality excellence.
  • Knowledge of big data technologies such as Apache Spark/Flink and real- time data-warehouses like Materialize is advantageous.
  • Strong problem-solving skills and attention to detail.
  • Excellent communication and collaboration skills.
