Job Details

Slack is looking for a senior engineer to join our Data Engineering organization. You will build scalable services and tools to help partners implement, deploy and analyze data assets with a high level of autonomy and limited friction. You will play a meaningful role in making partner interactions with the Data Warehouse pleasant and productive (Data Science, Business Intelligence, Application Engineering, Machine Learning and IT).

At Data Ingestion, we build and operate the platform that ingests data into our Data Warehouse. We write software to manage data ingestion for thousands of stateful hosts and stateless real time logging events. Currently, our infrastructure handles 65PB+ of storage, processes 900B records a day, 400+ ETL pipelines and 900+ Active Airflow DAGs. As Slack’s data grows (along with the number of customers, features and employees), the goal of the Data Ingestion team is to build a highly scalable and resilient ingestion platform to acquire high quality data efficiently and provide easy to use workflow and orchestration capabilities for our users to manage the data lifecycle.

As a member of Data Ingestion, you will develop and maintain our ingestion pipelines, help to design and build abstractions that hide the complexity of the underlying Big Data stack and allow partners to focus on their strengths: data modeling, data analysis, search or machine learning. You will have deep technical skills, be a self-starter, detail and quality oriented, and passionate about driving data driven decisions and having a huge impact at Slack!

We recommend reading some of our blog posts that shed light into what we do here at Slack:

  • Data Lineage at Slack - https://slack.engineering/data-lineage-at-slack/

  • Reliably Upgrading Apache Airflow at Slack's Scale - https://slack.engineering/reliably-upgrading-apache-airflow-at-slacks-scale/

  • Introducing Data Residency for Slack - https://slack.com/blog/transformation/introducing-data-residency-for-slack

  • Data Wrangling at Slack - https://slack.engineering/data-wrangling-at-slack/

What you will be doing

  • Design and develop highly scalable and resilient services/pipelines for data ingestion and processing

  • Optimize the end-to-end workflow for data users at Slack (from crafting libraries to schedule data pipelines and access data assets).

  • Provide transparency into our data flows (comprehensive view of sources, transformations, sinks and data lineage).

  • Automate and handle the lifecycle of data sets (schema evolution, metadata management, change and backfill management, deprecation and migration).

  • Streamline the creation of new data sets with accessible frameworks and Domain Specific Languages (DSL).

  • Improve the data quality and reliability of the pipelines (monitoring and failure detection).

  • Comfortably collaborate with cross functional partners and lead technical initiatives end to end.

  • Be a role model and a multiplier, coaching and mentoring junior and intermediate engineers.

  • Write, review, or provide feedback on a technical design proposal from others.

What you should have

  • 5+ years of software/data engineering experience, including experience with Big Data technologies, e.g. Spark, Kafka, Hive, Airflow, Presto, EMR, S3, etc.

  • You have extensive experience of building and maintaining large scale data pipelines and in-depth knowledge of various big data frameworks and architectures

  • You are skilled at crafting and building robust distributed microservices with tools like Docker, Kubernetes, AWS ECS/EKS etc.

  • You have strong dedication to code quality, automation and operational excellence: CI/CD pipelines, unit/integration tests.

  • You are proficient in object-oriented and/or functional programming languages: Python, Java/Scala, Go

  • You have excellent written and verbal communication and interpersonal skills; able to effectively collaborate with cross functional partners and explaining sophisticated technical concepts to non-technical stakeholders

  • You have high growth expectations for yourself and your team, and a willingness to push yourself and your team to achieve them

  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science, Engineering or related field, or equivalent training, fellowship, or work experience.
