Job Description

We’re a fast growing startup that has already raised close to €10 million in investment from leading venture capital firms, and have been named by Bloomberg as one of the 50 most promising startups in the world to look out for. Our goal is to revolutionize the world of Location Management and the way businesses think about, and act upon location data.

At Geoblink we use the latest technologies to find solutions to real world problems businesses face when trying to expand or increase efficiency. We leverage GIS technologies and Big Data to create a beautiful map-based user interface that not only provides lots of awesome statistics but also a great user experience.

We are proud of the environment of collaboration and diversity we have built and continue to foster, with plenty of opportunities to have a real impact on the business.

About the role

As a member of the Data Engineering team, you will be responsible for managing our data architecture and ensuring it runs smoothly (from data ingestion, processing and cleaning to data warehouse/data marts generation and optimization).

In terms of data, we manage three main types of information sources, always with an important spatial component: public data (coming from official institutions, open data portals, etc.), private data (coming from partnerships established with data providers such as financial institutions, telco companies, GPS providers…) and client data (coming directly from our customers including business internals, metrics...).

On a daily basis, these are the sort of things you can expect to be doing:

  • Define, implement and maintain the whole lifecycle of existing and new data pipelines allowing us to improve our data offering and quality.
  • Evolve and optimize our data management engine, responsible for the continuous update of all the spatio temporal information we have.
  • Define, implement and maintain advanced spatial data centric features to be included directly in our app for our final customers.
  • Monitor and ensure the quality of all the data provided at Geoblink, both internally (for other teams in the company) and externally (for our final customers).
  • Monitor and ensure the performance of our data warehouse / data marts when consumed by our product or other teams in the company.
  • Interact with Product and other Tech teams and help them to get the most out of our data.

Who we’re looking for

We are looking for someone passionate about both data and engineering, but 100% understands that the engineering side of our work is as good as the quality of the final data (“working” does not mean “success”). If you are the type of engineer that is motivated to work on an expanding startup set to do big things… this is the right place for you!

We would love for you to have:

  • Proven experience as a Data Engineer (working in a startup environment is a plus, but not mandatory).
  • Previous experience working and managing data lakes / data warehouses.
  • Strong knowledge on cloud data warehouse technologies: BigQuery (preferred), RedShift, Snowflake…
  • Strong knowledge on workflow management technologies: Apache Airflow (preferred), Google Composer, Dagster…
  • Expertise on technologies like Spark (both with Scala and Python) and Kafka.
  • Cloud provider general knowledge: AWS and GCP.
  • Ability and passion to learn, research and test new technologies
  • Great communication skills, both in Spanish and English.

You will get extra kudos if you have:

  • Experience working with spatial data and/or GIS systems.
  • Experience working with mobility data (telco or GPS providers).
  • Experience working with DevOps technologies like: Kubernetes, Helm, Skaffold…
  • Experience in other programming and scripting languages like: Golang, NodeJS, Bash…

We operate a “zero-policy” which means there are no restrictions on vacation days, office hours, working from home as much as you like, etc. We believe everyone here is a “mini-CEO”, and should have the opportunity to make their own decisions about their work schedule.

People join us not just for the flexibility that we offer but because we have worked hard to foster a collaborative environment filled with plenty of opportunities to have a real impact in the business and collaborate with smart peers.

  • Competitive fix and variable compensation and the option to join the phantom shares company plan.
