At Scribd (pronounced “scribbed”), our mission is to spark human curiosity. Join our team as we create a world of stories and knowledge, democratize the exchange of ideas and information, and empower collective expertise through our three products: Everand, Scribd, and Slideshare.
We support a culture where our employees can be real and be bold; where we debate and commit as we embrace plot twists; and where every employee is empowered to take action as we prioritize the customer.
We love collaborating and investing time in our Scribd community, and we create intentional in-person moments with each other to build culture and connection. And, it is through our flexible work benefit – Scribd Flex – that we enable employees, in partnership with their manager, to choose the work-style that best suits their individual needs and preferences.
What You'll Do:
You will play a pivotal role in managing and optimizing our data stream of analytics events. Your responsibilities will include designing and implementing robust data pipelines and transformations, ensuring data integrity through automated quality monitoring.
We’re looking for someone who is not only skilled in data engineering but also understands the high stakes of working with business-critical data. Your expertise will directly contribute to the efficiency and reliability of our financial operations, making it essential for the success of our partners and our business.
Based on the project, this might involve cross-functional work with the Data Science or Content Engineering teams to troubleshoot, process, or optimize our business-critical pipelines, or working with Core Platform to implement better processing jobs for scaling our consumption of streaming data sets. Almost everything you would be working on would be to increase the "customer satisfaction" for internal customers of Scribd data.
Required Skills:
• Strong written and verbal communication skills.
• You have at least 3 years of experience in data engineering creating or managing end-to-end data pipelines on large complex datasets.
• 5+ years of relevant experience in Data Engineering, Backend Engineering, BI Engineering, or Software Engineering
• You have engineered scalable software using big data technologies (e.g. Hadoop, Spark, Hive, Flink, Samza, Storm, Elasticsearch, Druid, Cassandra, etc).
• Fluency with at least one dialect of SQL.
• Expertise in Scala, Java, or Python.
Desired Skills:
• You have worked on and have knowledge of Streaming platforms, typically based around Kafka.
• Strong grasp of AWS data platform services and their strengths/weaknesses.
• Strong experience using Jira, Slack, JetBrains IDEs, Git, GitLab, GitHub, Docker, Jenkins, Terraform.
• Experience using DataBricks.
