Role Description

The Company

At Bigeye, our mission is making it a delight to work with data every day.

We built some of the most widely adopted tools at companies like Uber and saw how fast teams move when they have a great data toolchain. Now Bigeye is building best-of-breed tools for anyone who eats, sleeps, and breathes data: analysts, data scientists, and data engineers around the world.

The DevOps movement changed the world of working with infrastructure. The DataOps movement is just getting started. Come help us write the first chapter.

The Team

You’ll be an early engineer on our team, joining a powerhouse team of engineers, product designers, data scientists, and enterprise sales folks. You’ll not only help us build products that customers love using, you’ll help us build a team that people love working on.

The Work

Today, we’re focused on one of the most painful aspects of DataOps: observability and outages.

Most teams still discover data outages – duplicated, missing, and unexpected data – after they impact application features, dashboards, ML models, and ultimately their stakeholders. We’re building a data observability platform to monitor their data content and alert them early so they can triage and respond instantly.

Experience designing, building, and supporting a user-facing product.

A desire to learn and grow as an engineer.

Proven passion for uncovering and solving the real customer problem. We think this is the core of a successful product.

Excitement about being an early engineer. You’ll be defining our engineering best practices, choosing our shared tools, and helping us build a world-class team.

Clear and straightforward communication. We’ll be moving fast and building some complex products together, so clarity matters.

Our Principles

Solve real problems. Bigeye solves real problems for real data teams, and Bigeye Engineering prioritizes those problems above all else. Engineering must be equally aware of customer needs as sales and customer support, and constantly re-evaluate whether what we are building is relevant.

Use boring technology. Success comes from building great products that solve real challenges for customers, not from satisfying our own technical curiosities. If a solution for a problem exists internally, we leverage or extend the solution. If this is a new space, we evaluate existing external solutions before committing to building something from scratch.

Build fast, zoom out often. We make customers happy by solving their problems faster than anyone else can (including themselves!), and that means not getting crushed by our scale or complexity. Bigeye Engineering makes time to extract commonalities into the platform layer, pay down technical debt, and with more information around problem spaces, rethink designs and architectures, and rebuild when we have to.
