  • Collaborate with colleagues in Product and Engineering to build the highest-quality, customer-focused product

  • Experience using Python (or another language) to load and clean data-sets
  • Excellent analytical skills and close attention to detail

  • Strong written and verbal communication skills

We’d love to see:

  • Experience building a data ingestion pipeline, based on Python/SQL, to on-board a complex data-set
