About You

You love building great solutions. Your work could be supporting new feature development, migrating existing features, or creating new database architectures and ETL processes. You'll have a primary focus on Data Engineering and experience with tools ranging from PowerBI and Tableau to custom Python development and SQL.

You are a Data Engineer with cloud platform experience such as AWS, Azure or GCP. You participate in onboarding new data sources in ELT/ETL as well as in the development, enhancement, and maintenance of the in-house ETL and database systems. Prior exposure and experience to AWS Glue, Azure Databricks or GCP Big Query would be great. Having worked with some big data tools like PrestoDB or Hive would be exceptional. You have experience in data collection automation work from REST/GraphQL APIs, Flat Files, Database, etc. You are also comfortable with GIT and GitHub.

You have a good understanding of data warehouse modeling. You enjoy supporting the team with data testing, as well as working to ensure deployment and integration tasks are completed successfully. You are able to come up with initiatives to continuously improve platform performance and reliability, in addition, to recommend changes in project design concepts to improve efficiency. You regularly contribute to requirement gathering sessions.

You relish creating high-quality code from the comfort of your own home. Your engineering projects will focus on understanding customers' needs and translating those needs from product specifications into functional, production-ready code. You'll have the opportunity to ship code daily that will be used by customers.

You’re a team player. You’ve led and mentored others, both technically and with their development as engineers. You understand that being a senior engineer isn’t only about technical skills or time in the game; you work well with others. You are a senior expert who can not only coach others on best practices, but also help define those best practices

Having overlap with your team is critical when working in a global remote team. Modus requires all team members to overlap with EST morning hours daily and for our client, we need you to be aligned with PST. In addition, reliable high-speed internet is a must.
