Data Engineer

Engineering | Dublin, Ireland

Who we are:

Nitro is an exciting, high-growth company in the rapidly evolving digital documents space. We put people at the center of everything we do, both our customers and our employees.

It comes back to one of our core values:
High Performance - We have a “performance first” orientation and ambitious plans for the company. This means ample opportunity for those who join us to make a big impact. Non-high performers need not apply.
Be Good - We hire people with big hearts and foster an environment where they can be themselves and do their best work. We celebrate individuality and diversity and provide our employees with the opportunities, the resources and the support they need to thrive and flourish.
No BS – this one is self-explanatory
Our value proposition is straightforward, tangible and easy to prove: We believe software technology should be easy to use, help make people better, and be accessible to any knowledge worker who wants to be more productive.
We are on a mission: we hire creative, intelligent, talented people; we build great products that delight our customers; and we are doing it in a rewarding way– a way that feels good and makes us proud to be part of Nitro.

Why Nitro Engineering :

Engineering is a critical function at Nitro, developing the products and services at the heart and soul of our business today, and helping us realize our vision of smarter documents in the future. We have an incredibly talented and diverse Engineering team with a strong culture that believes in building the right things, and building them the right way.

The Role :

We're looking for a Data Engineer to join our engineering team in Dublin. You will be working on building the Data Platform for our SaaS Backend. The optimal candidate has experience in large distributed systems engineering and wants to learn more about data-engineering or the other way around (you know about data-engineering and want to learn more about building a large, distributed micro-services architecture).

What you'll be doing :

  • You will be designing, developing, and operating data pipelines to provide high quality datasets to internal and external customers.
  • Owning solutions to support a rapidly-growing business and massive usage scale from idea through running in production
  • Working closely with a tightly-knit team within a high performing engineering culture
  • Pushing the envelope on what's possible and applying pragmatic approaches to building sustainable solutions
  • Helping establish best engineering practices and mentoring others
  • Building automated test suites
  • Gaining the satisfaction from delighting customers

What we're looking for :

  • 3+ years of experience with large distributed systems, including at least three of the areas below:
    • Micro-service architectures and RESTful services
    • Event driven & streaming architectures
    • Large-scale data processing frameworks, e.g. Spark, Flink, Hadoop
    • Infrastructure as a service (e.g. AWS EMR, Kinesis, ...)
  • 3+ years of experience in a JVM based programming language (e.g. Scala, Kotlin, Java)
  • Enthusiasm and a growth mindset (research and prototyping are a major part of this job)
  • Someone who can build prototypes that help distill the vision into a working product
  • Ability to move fast and distinguish signal from noise in everyday work life

Traits that will distinguish the ultimate candidate :

  • Production experience with a functional programming language (particularly Scala, but also Clojure, Haskell, Erlang, …)
  • Experience with large-scale data processing frameworks, e.g. Spark
  • Experience with AWS EMR and data-pipelines
  • Proven track record with commercial SaaS applications used globally at a massive scale
  • Blogging or presenting at conferences on functional or data engineering topics.
