The Opportunity


We are looking for someone to join the growing Revenue team at Recurrent. As a Data Engineer for Revenue you will transform data into a format that can be easily analyzed and deploy data products in a multiplatform ecosystem. You’ll develop, test, and maintain data pipelines for millions of dollars in transactions and hundreds of thousands of users every month. You will help to scale computational environments, establish cloud infrastructure and design across the Revenue team as well as inform, develop, and deploy microservices and scale data science models.


Our team works across the entire stack that supports shopping content and other buying opportunities across our sites. We focus on execution, working quickly to meet our business’s needs while at the same time developing a framework for scalable, long term success.

We are looking for an engineer who can support the architecture and management of our data platform. You will be a part of the data engineering team in charge of ETL (Extract, Transform, Load), validation, and optimization of complex sets of often incomplete information to meet business needs.

You will work with stakeholders, including the Executive and Product leads, to support data infrastructure needs while assisting with data-related technical issues. A strong desire to learn and teach others is important.

This role will involve development of prototype applications and production code. It’s an excellent opportunity for a curious engineer who enjoys a mix of both theory and application in a fast growing and exciting space within digital media.
