About the role

As a Senior Software Engineer, you will be contributing to complex and innovative features in the Datafold application as well as help build the foundation of the Datafold platform.

Datafold empowers its users – data engineers and analysts – by abstracting them from the complexity of their data and automating the most tedious tasks. That requires us to solve various challenging problems under the hood.

Projects you will work on could include:

  • Developing API endpoints to implementing sophisticated features that may involve:

    • Static code analysis for data lineage

    • Graph-powered search for data catalog

  • Evolving our cloud infrastructure in conjunction with the backend to make sure our product is maintainable, scalable, performant and reliable.

  • Logging into Linux systems to resolve problems, analyze performance issues.

You will partner closely with the CTO, Head of Engineering and product team to scope projects, and collaborate with other members of the engineering team to get projects shipped and solve our customers’ problems. Datafold’s frontend is written in React/TypeScript, our backend in Python, and we use PostgreSQL, ClickHouse, and Redis as datastores. Our product is hosted on AWS and Google Cloud.
