We’re also working in mobile application development in React Native. We love to innovate and our Quality Team has created a framework for automation. We also work with different algorithms that help us to get the best success in our process.

As a Data Engineer you will work with PySpark data pipelines to deliver data to our main stakeholders: Data Analyst and Data Scientist of the different product squads. Our primary tool is the Databrick platform, maintaining and creating scaled data pipelines with a lot of care in data quality and data testing. We are algo using Terraform to deploy infrastructure and Github Actions to automate CI/CD in our developments. Every member of the team is accountable for the entire pipeline: from the first architecture design to production deployment following a DevOps philosophy.

Also, as a Data Platform member you will help to build the platform to enable other teams to self service high quality tooling and data while performing data operations to support their day to day actions.

We hope you can help us to achieve our full potential as a Data Platform team, so you will contribute since minute one!
