We’re looking for an experienced developer to join our Data Platform team, which is responsible for the efficient, reliable, secure, and compliant propagation of all datasets across the company to our data warehouses.

As a senior data engineer, you will work with on-premises data infrastructure (Spark, Airflow, Kafka, Kubernetes) and with data services in GCP (BigQuery, GCS, DataFlow) and AWS (Lambda, S3). You will also improve tooling (Scala, Python), monitoring, and alerting for datasets and data jobs, in order to provide our business with the data it needs to thrive.

You are an experienced developer with a good understanding of building distributed, scalable, and accessible systems, preferably in the domain of databases, data infrastructure, and tooling. Ideally have previous experience building or maintaining streaming architectures and building data pipelines and tooling for data scientists.

You are passionate about learning and collaborating closely with peers. Your empathy for your users' goals, enthusiasm working across teams, and desire to impact the world of music and creative expression are ingredients for your success. Petabytes of data are waiting for you.
