Job Description

What’s an average day like?
This is a net new position for Pliancy within the Data & Business Enablement team. You will work with our Lead Analytics Engineer to help design, implement, and operate our expanding data lakehouse and analytical reporting environment. You’ll create data structures that make reporting and tracking KPIs both possible and easier. In collaboration with Analytics Engineering, you’ll discover internal/external data sources to design and build table structures, data products, and ELT pipelines utilizing tools such as Dataplex, Dataform, Airtable, and the rest of the GCP Data stack.
Who are we looking for?
We need someone with advanced SQL skills and expertise in building cloud-based data pipelines. Experience with GCP, Dataform, Airbyte, and Looker is a plus. As a Data Engineer, you’ll need to know our platform through and through, and be able to solve challenges with data storage, processing, and access. You are fanatical about writing maintainable code within our given coding conventions across various data integration platforms.
You’re a team player who enjoys interacting with the individuals you support. You establish connections with users, not problems to solve; and as a result, build trust. Few things make you happier at the end of the day than helping your team achieve a shared objective. You like addressing business challenges with new technology, typically leading the way in their implementation.
Why work with us?

Clients solving challenging problems with meaningful purpose
Top-of-their-game peers who have fun with what they do and take teamwork seriously
Rapid company growth (75% year over year) with the opportunity to see the impact of your efforts on the company on a massive scale
Flexible schedule designed to empower your communication and time management skills
Great culture, that is driven by empathetic people.
Benefits and perks built to meaningfully support you and your family while we grow together
