Combining a revolutionary pricing engine, a world-class technology and fulfillment platform, and incredible customer service, we've set out to create a new kind of e-commerce. At Jet, we're passionate about empowering people to live and work brilliant.

About Jet's Internal Engine
We're building a new kind of company, and we're building it from the inside out, which means that investing in hiring, developing, and retaining the brightest minds in the world is a top priority. Everything we do is grounded in three simple values: trust, transparency, and fairness. From our business model to our culture, we live our values to the extreme, whether we're dealing with employees, retail partners, or consumers. We believe that happiness is the highest level of success and we want every person that crosses paths with Jet to achieve it. If you're an ambitious, smart, natural collaborator who likes taking risks, influencing, and innovating in a challenging hyper-growth environment, we'd love to talk to you about joining our team.

About the Job
We are looking for an exceptional Data Engineer to help build a world class analytical platform to collect, store and expose both structured and un-structured data generated by a vastly growing system landscape at Jet.com.

You can expect a freewheeling, informal work environment, populated by a combination of folks from top companies that have produced many successful products, as well as some PhD's that have escaped the ivory tower.

We have lots of perks like free lunches, but you will be so engrossed with the challenges of the job that the free stuff will be more like icing on the cake.

Because we work on cutting edge technologies, we need someone who is a creative problem solver, resourceful in getting things done, and productive working independently or collaboratively. This person would take on the following responsibilities:
  • Design, implement and manage a near real-time ingestion pipeline into a data warehouse and Hadoop data lake.
  • Gather and process raw data at scale - collect data across all business domains (our functional-first, event sourced, micro services backend) and expose mechanisms for large scale parallel processing
  • rocess unstructured data into a form suitable for analysis and then empower state-of-the-art analysis for analysts, scientists, and APIs.
  • Support business decisions with ad hoc analysis as needed.
  • vangelize an extremely high standard of code quality, system reliability, and performance.
  • Influence cross functional architecture in sprint planning.

 
About You
  • xperience in running, using and trouble shooting the Apache Big Data stack i.e. Hadoop FS, Hive, HBase, Kafka, Pig, Oozie, Yarn.
  • Programming experience, ideally in Scala or F# but we are open to other experience if you're willing to learn the languages we use.
  • roficient scripting skills i.e. unix shell and/or powershell
  • Experience processing large amounts of structured and unstructured data with MapReduce.
  • We use Azure extensively, so experience with cloud infrastructure will help you hit the ground running.

 
Compensation Philosophy
Our compensation philosophy is simple but powerful. Give everyone a meaningful stake in the company-the purest form of ownership. That's why on top of base salary, Jet's comp structure is heavily weighted in equity. Our collective hard work, high performance, and tenure are rewarded as our equity builds in value.

Benefits & Perks

Competitive Salaries. Real Ownership in the form of Stock Options. Unlimited Vacation. Full Healthcare Benefits. Exceptional Work Environment. Learning & Development Opportunities. Just for fun Networking & Events.

At Jet, we're passionate about empowering people to live brilliantly. And we're looking for amazing team members to help us get there.
