Data Systems Engineer

You care deeply about reproducible, scalable pipelines and clean data sets. You can write a program in SQL (not that you'd want to). You can refactor a ETL project in 2 days if provided with enough liquid motivation. You can take a pipeline that is behaving erratically and make it produce the same result every time. You understand how to talk to and interact with machine learning researchers about your pipelines and tools and can teach them how to use them. You will build systems that move data from A to B reliably, under all sorts of constraints and heavy fire.


  • BS in computer science or extraordinary aptitude as a data engineer or systems engineer
  • Knowledge of distributed systems like hdfs/hadoop, horizontal database scaling
  • Expertise in data storage, movement, and management systems
  • Ability to write a memory efficient program
  • Ability to work with ETL pipelines
  • Strong understanding of SQL
  • Excellent bash/python skills


  • Experience with aws, azure or google cloud
  • MS/Phd in computer science or similar technical field
  • Experience with airflow, luigi or similar ETL pipeline software
  • Experience with legacy database systems (e.g. oracle / cobol db2)
  • Knowledge of operating systems, programming languages, and compilers

At Aiconic we move, merge and build machine learning systems using billions of rows and Terabytes of data reliably and reproducibly. We work on hard problems where the right choice matters, as people rely on our algorithms to make their most important decisions. We care more about the ability to learn fast than experience with certain libraries or systems. Our engineering culture values the academic method and good code.

We offer you to work with interesting data on problems that matter with interesting and diligent coworkers and the opportunity to shape the future slowly but surely.

We look for a track record of exceptionalism - hackathon winners, competitive schools, published papers, Kaggle masters or extraordinary projects. ​
