New York City, NY, United States
PowerToFly approved because…

BuzzFeed literally helped PowerToFly get off the ground. They were one of our first hiring partners when we launched about four years ago. On top of that, their executives backed us as angel investors. Both Jonah Peretti, BuzzFeed's Founder and CEO, and Greg Coleman, BuzzFeed's President, wrote checks to turn our dream into a reality (and they continue to advise our founders, an unmeasurable value). We also got significant seed funding from two of BuzzFeed's board members - Ken Lerer and Eric Hippeau.

Needless to say, BuzzFeed is completely invested in making PowerToFly a success, and that means hiring more women through the platform. BuzzFeed has certainly done that. Countless women have been hired by BuzzFeed through PowerToFly like Paola Matta who started out as an English Major before writing code.

BuzzFeed is looking for an experienced Engineer to help build the infrastructure that powers our analytics products. You will be part of a growing team and help shape the way we develop and operate production quality systems. You will report to the Director of Software Engineering, Data Infrastructure.

  • Strong CS fundamentals
  • Build data expertise and own data quality for the thoughtful pipelines you build
  • Architect, build and launch new data models that provide thoughtful analytics to editors and engineers alike
