Senior Data Engineer

Job description

Senior Data Engineer  – Mapping Software - Remote Worldwide – up to €105k



A socially responsible scale up with a mission to supercharge developing nations.


The product is pretty cool, in short, it identifies areas of the developing world where public infrastructures could be implemented, improved or made accessible. Using data gathered during the identification stage, they can highlight opportunities and processes to improve services like healthcare, education, agriculture etc. and the projects can be ran and measured using the software you’ll be building.


After a solid 4 years so far, they’re entering a pivotal growth phase following investment. This investment is mainly being used to grow out the team to continue and expand on the life changing work that they’re currently doing – hoping to double within the year!



If you’d like to do work that will positively impact over 2 billion – yes BILLION – people’s lives then keep reading.


You’ll be joining a diverse, collaborative and cross functional (albeit small for now) team, working on a project which is focussed around the data infrastructure alongside the biggest and most impressive authorities globally (hint, not just globally, but universally… ?). You’ll be integrating unstructured data streams from things like satellite imagery, surveys and sensor data to improve predictions on infrastructure outcomes to allow stakeholders to make key decisions.


Due to the size of the scale up plans, you will join as a Senior Engineer but have the opportunity to fast track your way towards leadership/management if you want to go down that route.


Experience or knowledge of geospatial data (e.g. familiar with concepts such as ratser/vector data, spatial SQL, satellite imagery, geoparquet, vector tile servers, etc.) would be amazing, but don’t worry if you don’t have this, if you’re open to learning, they’ll teach you. They really want team members who want to become experts and they’re happy to help you get there. The main focus right now, is what you’ve done with technology and how you’ve done it, opposed to what tools you’ve done it with.



Ideally, you’ll have some experience of the following:

  • Experience building out ETL and ELT pipelines using orchestration tools (ideally Airflow)
  • Solid background working with Python
  • GCP experience
  • Strong Database understanding – they work a lot with SQL



€70-€105k as well as possible equity, great learning opportunities, fully remote flexible working worldwide, over 30 holidays, and more!



1 – Chat with the CTO – get to know each other and discuss technical expertise (1 hour)

2 – Call with the CEO and meet the team (1 hour)

3 – Hopefully you’ll receive an offer and will start your new role and live happily ever after ?
