Data Engineer job
Warby Parker is looking for a well-rounded Data Engineer to join our Data Engineering team. We love stats, so much so that we have analysts in every department! By using both experience and objective data analysis, we constantly experiment, iterate, and improve—a process that helped us get named one of the world’s most innovative companies by “Fast Company.” Together with other engineers, you’ll build and support some of the essential data products that enable our fast-growing company to grow even faster. Above all, the Data Engineer will help make the customer experience an easier and happier one. So if you’re thirsty for knowledge and looking to join a close-knit and supportive crew, read on!
Who you are:
We’re on the lookout for a thoughtful engineer who has worked with data professionally for at least three years. You’ll thrive here if you’re well-versed in SQL and can operate an ETL system—be it a commercial one like Informatica, SSIS, or DataStage; an open-source one like Airflow, Luigi, or Talend; or a custom one you or your company built. Our ideal candidate also has experience working on a major relational database management system, such as PostgreSQL (which we use), Oracle, or MySQL. Knowing how to optimize the query planner and comfortably explain how the database runs will set you up for flying-colors success in the role.
As a team that values collaboration, we like people who love to share their insights, skills, and learnings with their coworkers. For instance, have you ever bounced back from unexpected database issues? Tell us about it!
What you’ll do and what you’ll learn:
As a Data Engineer at Warby Parker, you’ll craft and enhance agile data models used by engineers across the company, as well as build data products to provide analysts and data scientists with business intelligence and insights. In this role, you will also expose data from that software in Looker (our primary business intelligence solution) so we can better measure the performance of our groundbreaking features.
Our department works with a wide variety of stakeholders from merchandising to marketing, from finance to HR. The Data Engineer will meet the people who are asking for information, learn the details of how they’ll use it, and make it available for them in a thoughtful and effective way. Since our team uses a healthy dose of Python, you’ll get to work with data software engineers too. You’ll operate many cloud (IaaS and SaaS) services including Amazon/AWS and Google platforms. With other engineers, you’ll participate in code reviews to ensure we’re building our systems to last and adapt to changing needs. And thanks to our democratic prioritization process, you’ll have a direct say in shaping the future of our business. If that all sounds like your cup of tea (or coffee or yerba mate), we’d love to hear from you!
Some benefits and perks of working at Warby Parker:
- Health, vision, and dental insurance
- Flexible “My Time” vacation policy
- Retirement savings plan with a company match
- Parental leave (non-birthing parents included)
- Cell phone plan reimbursement
- A health-and-wellness stipend
- Free eyewear (plus discounts for friends and family)
- And more (just ask!)
