Data Engineers, DataOps
DataOps is not a new thing at Wolt, but having a whole team focusing on it is! If you want to be scaling up data collection and usage at a truly data-driven company, you might want to join our brand new DataOps team!
Wolt has been growing substantially in the past years and this growth has posed new challenges when working with data. We want to make sure that the teams consuming data are able to do so without spending the majority of their time on acquiring, cleaning and transforming it. So this is where DataOps comes to the rescue!
This team would be responsible for bridging the gap between data integration, data engineering and data documentation, helping other teams to access the right data and shorten the cycle time. In practice you would be working with integrating data from our services into our warehouse and into our internal data catalog and help develop the tooling that makes these operations possible. In addition, the long term goal for DataOps is to help other teams to become more independent with data analysis and data quality, by coaching with tools and practices.
As said, we have projects already up and running, quite complex ones with a few hundred data pipelines so this team will have a lot of impact in shaping the future of DataOps at Wolt. As the team is new, the roles will be shaped based on each team member's background and desire to take responsibility.
The team welcomes a new member to the Helsinki HQ or working entirely remotely in elsewhere Finland, Germany, Denmark, or Estonia now and in the future!
Our humble expectations
Working in this team means putting both your technical and interpersonal skills into action. If you have been working with data engineering before you probably know your way around data modeling, data warehousing and databases (we use Postgres, MongoDB and Snowflake), without forgetting backend development. This is the kind of experience we are also looking for. Our data platform is mainly built with Python, so you should have experience with it. We also work with Kafka, Airflow, Spark & Kubernetes.
Helping out other product teams is at the core of this role, so good collaboration and communication skills will be needed. Having a genuine desire for wanting to make data work better for all ensures that you’ll enjoy the role as well.
The compensation will be a negotiable combination of monthly pay and Wolt stock options. The latter makes it exceptionally easy to be excited about our company growing and doing well, as you'll own a piece of the pie.
If you want to check up on your application or have any further questions about the position, you can turn to Talent Acquisition Partner Jasmin Shams, firstname.lastname@example.org at any given time.
