Impact and exposure. Data is the future and our present. You will apply and grow your skills in big data, functional programming, machine learning, and data science helping to advance engineering efforts targeted at problems not yet solved in the industry. This is a newly acquired, innovative and responsive product team undergoing an exciting transformation and alignment with Altus.

Career Development. You want to be part of a global company that is forward-thinking and setting the standards in Real Estate technology. Your career opportunities will increase as we continue to scale as a company and as a team, including the chance to grow your skills, and your influence on this team or on another product team.

As our new Senior Data Engineer you will focus on:

  • Design and development. You will contribute to the architecture and implementation of our knowledge graph. You will write high-quality code, participate actively in code reviews, and consistently help to ship software. You will design workflows in Scala.
  • The data pipeline. You will lead the integration of new data, the improvement of existing data, and the productionalization of machine learning and data science efforts. You will create frameworks that ensure ongoing, consistent quality, maintenance, optimization, and operation of the data pipeline.
  • Collaboration. You will work closely with the R&D team to design, build and improve the complex data layer; and provide ongoing feedback to the product team on improving graph quality and coverage. You will play a critical role on the team and at Altus to meet the current and anticipated needs of our clients. You will increase data accessibility and foster data-driven decision-making in the global CRE industry.

Our new Senior Data Engineer has:

  • The knowledge. You share our belief that as data engineers, our job is to put together a transparent and holistic view of the world from a data perspective. With 5+ years in software development, you are deeply familiar with best practices in Computer Science, building B2B products, developing and advancing workflow, and working with big data and machine learning. Ideally, you have exposure to graph technology.
  • The technical expertise. You have strong working and conceptual knowledge of building and maintaining custom analytical solutions and data pipelines. You have experience using Scala, and Java or Python as well as Apache Spark or another distributed data processing framework (Beam, Flink).
  • The relationship-building expertise. You have an appreciation for cross-team collaboration, particularly with our data scientists and API engineers. You can influence work in a multi-functional team environment with rapidly changing priorities under tight deadlines. You have flexible communication and documentation skills, confidence in making presentations, and can leverage communication tools. You can translate technical data and development concepts for a non-technical audience. 
  • The drive to continuously improve. You can anticipate, understand, and respond to the needs of internal teams and external clients, and you are driven to meet or exceed their expectations. You are a forward thinker and can innovate solutions to keep the data products – and the business – moving forward.
