Hi there! We're looking for a Data Warehouse Architect to join the data team at Zapier. Interested in helping grow a product that helps the world automate their work so they can get back to living? Then read on…
Even though our job description may seem like we are looking for a candidate with a very specific skillset, the role will be tailored to the person who applies and joins. Regardless of how well you feel you fit our description, we encourage you to apply if you love collaborating with teammates to understand and address their data needs and help them become more effective.About You
You have experience with data warehouses. You’ve ingested data from other systems, made sense of them, matched up data without the luxury of cross-system identities and built conformed models from them. You have experience optimizing queries, especially on column-oriented storage systems.
You are hands on. You don’t expect to come up with designs and leave implementation to others. Instead, you dig in and get stuff done.
You are a skilled written communicator. Zapier is a 100% remote team and writing is our primary means of communication. You can communicate unfamiliar technical topics clearly and approachably.
You enjoy understanding and communicating user and system behavior through data that is easy, consistent and fast. Our data is published in a Kimball-style data warehouse to ease and speed-up access.
You will thrive with our team’s values of eagerness to collaborate with teammates with any level of data warehousing knowledge, iterating over your deliverables, and being curious.
You understand that perfect is the enemy of good and default to action by initially shipping code and systems that simply work and work simply, while iterating as needed to get towards better solutions.Things You Might Do
