At Secoda there are many interesting technical challenges that come when building a collaborative data knowledge base. To give an idea of some of the projects you could be working on, here's an overview of some of the pieces of technology we've built so far.

Secoda's platform is built on top of a PostgresSQL database that makes organizing data resources and finding the between them simple and flexible. We have designed our own SQL parser to automatically find the lineage of data resources in a company's data ecosystem. We have created a SQL editor to run queries against popular data warehouses and built charting capabilities to showcase query results. We've implemented a task engine to schedule and run concurrent extractions from data sources. All of the components in Secoda are organized into a micro-service architecture leveraging Docker containers in AWS.

We've just scratched the tip of the iceberg when it comes to problems that we're solving, so if the idea of working to make data be more accessible and and easy to use excites you, come work at Secoda!
