  • Growing the company
  • The direction and focus of Curri’s product roadmap

About you

  • Experience with relational databases and SQL
  • Experience using technologies and frameworks like (but not limited to) some of our most-used languages — Node, Typescript, Python — is an asset, but not required
  • Experience at a startup or similarly fast-paced environment
  • Curiosity and passion to constantly learn new things; Curri changes fast, and we need the people who work here to be able to change and learn fast too
  • Strong aptitude with data best practices and how they might apply (or not apply) to the current state of data engineering at Curri

About this role

  • Spearhead the integration with different data SaaS solutions such as Snowflake, Census, Hightouch, Fivetran, Collibra, dbt, Trifacta, Hevodata, Select Star, Soda, and/or Mode.

  • Design, develop, and own data pipelines and models that power internal analytics for product and business teams
  • Help the Data team apply and generalize statistical and econometric models on  datasets
  • Drive the collection of new data and the refinement of existing data sources
  • Develop relationships with production engineering teams to manage our data structures as the Curri product evolves
  • Develop strong subject matter expertise regarding what questions we can answer with our current Data and advocate for OR implement additional data collection

Why you might be excited about us

  • We're solving a massive, global problem of inefficiency in the construction industry. When we crack this nut, we imagine a world of efficient construction sites resulting in a net win for the entire world
  • We're small, so you'll be able to contribute efficiently and without bureaucracy. You'll quickly have responsibility over big areas of our product. We intend to keep it this way
  • We don't have a ton of meetings. In fact, we try to only meet on Tuesday and most engineers have zero on the other days. When we do meet synchronously, you'll always have the opportunity to contribute
  • Our team has a diverse set of opinions and experiences (YCombinator, Apple, Dollar Shave Club, Houzz, and more) and want to learn just as much as teach
  • You'll be able to work remotely and set your own schedule. We don't micro-manage and will help you do great work. Most of our engineers work US hours, but organize their work day to be whatever's best for them
  • We optimize for mobility—both vertically and horizontally. Put differently, we want you to grow into new areas of responsibility (whether managerial or technical) and we want you to work across the platform should you so desire
  • There is no work/life—there is only life and want your time at Curri to be life-giving and foster the best version of you. We care about family and your own personal development, and don't expect for you to be always engaged with work. Our on call is opt-in
  • We value autonomy, ownership, and accountability. We believe that a day is too granular a unit of measure (bye-bye daily stand-ups). We'll task you with leading a project for 8-weeks, where you'll be tightly aligned with the business needs and stakeholders
