bit.io’s mission is to make data scientists and software engineers immediately productive, to remove obstacles to using data, and to make data more accessible. Join us in building a shareable cloud database where users can share their data with anyone in seconds just like a Google doc, query their data without worrying about compute or memory, and combine their data with a growing collection of immediately use-able open data. bit.io is transforming data in the same way GitHub transformed software and open source.

Critical toward achieving bit.io’s vision is a datastore that (1) scales to petabyte queries while still enabling fast query-iteration by users, and (2) applies data best practices while remaining flexible when opinionated defaults aren’t enough. You will build bit.io’s datastore.

As a Software Engineer at bit.io you will:

  • Work across the stack on all aspects of software engineering for the core product
  • Collaborate directly with all teammates on a small, productive technology team
  • Solve petabyte-scale problems in the data space
  • Design, build, test and deploy a complex data management system
  • Make broad, impactful technology decisions with responsibility for their outcomes

We’re looking for someone who has:

  • Shipped product
  • Experience and passion in data, data engineering, and data processing
  • Deep knowledge in data management - parsing, cleaning, querying, extracting, etc.
  • A strong drive to make software easy-to-use

The ideal backend engineering candidate will have:

  • Expertise in Python and SQL
  • Constructed APIs with technology like REST, OpenAPI, or gRPC
  • Developed with microservices and container technologies like Docker & Kubernetes
  • High proficiency in building data processing pipelines, working with structured data, and leveraging common database technologies
