Role Description

We are building the future of freight

At Mothership, we believe in unlocking the world's potential through speeding up the delivery of everything people need. Started in 2017, we’re backed by some of venture capital’s best investors and have already become the logistics backbone for many of today’s most innovative companies.

As a Senior Data Engineer, you’ll build the underlying platform that powers our data science efforts across the company. Our fulfillment process heavily relies on data to make real-time decisions and you’ll be building the infrastructure to store and serve that data. As an early member of our growing data science team, you’ll be setting the direction of our data engineering efforts and architecting systems that will shape our company for years to come.

The ideal individual for this position is someone who cares deeply about reliability and is looking for extreme ownership to spread wings and test limits. They’re focused on action and lead by example in a hands on and collaborative way.

What you'll get to do

  • Architect our data pipelines so that different departments can quickly and efficiently store and consume data at scale
  • Maintain data quality and accuracy across our records by creating systems to monitor our data for anomalies and inconsistencies
  • Optimize our data collection processes, enforce clean schemas for data storage, and create a data lake for storing currently unused data
  • Ensure that our data pipelines are highly reliable

What success looks like

  • 3+ years experience in building data platforms at scale
  • Strong coding and design skills (Python and SQL a big plus)
  • Strong communication skills and the ability to work in a collaborative environment


  • Experience working at a tech startup
  • Experience working with geospatial data at scale
  • Experience working with BI platforms
  • Experience with ETL pipelines

Technologies we're working with

  • NodeJS + Express
  • Mongo
  • Redis
  • Snowflake
  • Python
  • Pandas
  • Flask
  • React & React Native
  • Redux
  • SQS
