We’re headquartered in London, venture backed, financially successful and stable, and looking forward to continued growth. We’d love it if you could join us on the journey!
We are looking for brilliant, creative, curious, and experienced Data Engineers to support our Data Platform team and infrastructure. This team owns the big data plumbing and processing that power our entire business, with a remit that spans data engineering, data analysis, and data science. We process over 350gb an hour, over around 400,000 incoming events a second, and maintain petabytes of analytical storage. We use technologies like Spark, Flink, Kafka, Cassandra, Redshift, Druid, and Postgres and we’re constantly looking at how we can do things better. This is a growing team with big responsibilities and exciting challenges ahead of it, as we look to reach the next 10x level of scale and intelligence. Our employees are passionate about teamwork and technology and we are looking for someone who wants to make a difference within a growing, successful company.
At Blis, Data Engineers are a combination of software engineers, devops, and data analysts. They actively write code, typically in either Scala or Python, but also help own our overall data and processing infrastructure. Their understanding of our business and the data also helps us to innovate, by discovering new opportunities or better ways of operating. They also work with our data scientists to explore, implement, improve, and maintain our algorithmic technologies. Across the team, everyone supports each other through mentoring, brainstorming, and pairing up. They have a passion for delivering products that delight and astound our customers and that have a long-lasting impact on the business. They do this while also optimising themselves and the team for long-lasting agility, which is often synonymous with practicing Good Engineering. They are almost always adherents of Lean Development and work well in environments with significant amounts of freedom and ambitious goals.
This is a full-time, permanent position based in London.
