  • You are an exemplary teammate: always ready to help a colleague, express complex concepts clearly, listen to complicated explanations patiently, do unavoidable chores cheerfully, and leverage your attention effectively

  • You will be very productive with our primary toolkit: Python, SQL, HTTP, bash/POSIX, and container orchestration

  • You can occasionally contribute to our secondary needs: Google Cloud administration (Kubernetes, CI/CD, GCP-specific data services), ReactJS, visualization and observability

  • (We would like at least one of our new colleagues to have strong Kubernetes skills)

  • You have previous experience with data science pipelines, the transportation industry, or electricity systems
