About the role

Join us as a Data Engineer on our outstanding Experimentation Platform team. You’ll build the data analysis pipelines for our experimentation platform that help our partners across product, marketing, engineering, data science, customer support, and finance optimize the features our users love across Robinhood products.

Rapid experimentation allows us to easily incorporate our successful experiments into the frontend product features and backend systems, while simply discarding our failed experiments. The tighter and faster this feedback loop, the more rapidly we will improve our service and grow our business.

Your day-to-day will involve:

  • Define, build, and own key experimentation analysis datasets and their quality and evolution
  • Architect and build scalable data pipelines using Spark and Airflow to move data from upstream into experimentation datasets
  • Partner with upstream engineering teams to enhance data logging patterns
  • Own large parts of the product execution based on feedback received from our users
  • Collaborate with Designers, Product Managers, Engineers and Data Scientists to rapidly iterate on the Experimentation tools
  • Promote data engineering best practices across the organization

About you:

  • 2+ years of professional Software Development experience
  • Strong product mindset and 2+ years of experience building high-quality data solutions
  • Strong analytical and problem solving skills
  • Expertise building data pipelines using open source frameworks (Hadoop, Spark, etc)
  • Expertise in one or more programming languages (Python, Java, Go, etc)
  • Strong SQL (Presto, Spark SQL, etc) skills
  • Familiarity with data visualization tools (Looker, Tableau, etc)
  • Strong communication skills

Bonus points:
