A Senior Data Engineer will work directly with on-desk staff to architect robust and scalable analytical solutions.

Our Data Engineers are responsible for data services, including ETL pipeline implementation, data warehouse architecture, data quality automation, and analytic visualization. We expect a Senior Data Engineer to need minimal guidance on architecture best practices and to communicate clearly to stakeholders across the organization.

Team Belvedere is an environment where you will solve challenging problems that result from petabytes of high-fidelity data. We incrementally add value to our trading desk and, at the same time, design long-term architectures to scale. We seek someone passionate about data and who enjoys working in a fast- paced environment.


What You'll Do

  • Work with our traders to understand analytic needs to improve trading performance.

  • Design and maintain a modular data architecture to facilitate and scale future analysis.

  • Ensure high data quality for all analytical trading datasets.

  • Hold other team members to data standards, including modular design, testing, and documentation.

  • Hold other team members to visual standards, including modular design, testing, and documentation.

  • Ensure technical solutions are simple and scale well for future use cases.

What You'll Need

  • Experience designing and developing big data warehouses and ETL pipelines.

  • Proven knowledge of SQL and Python.

  • Demonstrated ability to navigate and integrate data across multiple data platforms, including RDBMS, NoSQL, and Time Series.

  • Experience with real time messaging systems, such as Kafka, Kinesis, and Pulsar, and with developing a stream processing framework, such as Flink or Spark, a plus.

  • Proficiency in crafting high-performance BigQuery queries, optimizing for efficiency and scalability to handle large datasets effectively.

  • Excellent verbal and written communication, analytical, and problem-solving skills.
