We’re working on building a platform for reporting and analytics that is able to handle huge amounts of data in a real-time fashion that would allow us to uncover new insights and help us make decisions.

Our goal is to unlock data and make it available to various users starting from other engineers to end business users and clients. We value pragmatic solutions and simplicity that help us build reliable and fast systems.

Outcomes & responsibilities
• Build distributed, high-volume data pipelines and storage that power our reporting and analytics
• Work on real-time distributed OLAP custom solutions
• Do it with Spark, Kafka, Airflow, and other open-source technologies
• Work all over the stack, moving fluidly between programming languages: Scala, Python, and more
• You’ll help define the processes and infrastructure to transform and make data readily available across the company
• Join a tightly knit team solving hard problems the right way
• Own meaningful parts of our service, have an impact, grow with the company
• Take responsibility for system health, monitoring and alerting, and CI/CD pipelines
• Support and mentor other engineers on best practices, architecture, and quality

Capabilities & requirements
• You have built and operated data pipelines for real customers in production systems
• You are fluent in several programming languages (JVM & otherwise)
• You’ve worked with data stores and/or data warehouses, such as AWS Redshift, Snowflake, Clickhouse, or others
• You have hands-on experience with BigData frameworks (Hadoop, Hive, Spark, etc.)
• You’re able to explain advanced technical concepts in a simple manner and cater to your audience
• You enjoy wrangling huge datasets and helping others unlock new insights
• You’re concerned about resiliency, high-availability, data quality, and other aspects of a critical system

• Force for Good. We actively invest in the growth of our people and the strengthening of our communities. Our NYC office is 100% vaccinated to keep our employees and community safe and healthy. We require all Rokt’stars as well as anyone else who will be onsite at the Rokt NYC office – clients, contractors, vendors, and suppliers – to show proof of vaccination and their booster shot.
• Work with the greatest talent in town. Our recruiting process is tough. We hold a high bar because we have a high-performing, high-velocity culture – we only want the brightest and the best.
• Join a community. We believe the best things happen when we come together to solve complex problems and make meaningful connections with each other through interest groups, sports clubs, and social events.
• Accelerate your career. Develop through our global training events, ‘Level Up’ investment, online training courses, and our fantastic people leaders. Take your career to Rokt’speed – Grow your career in our rapidly growing company.
• Take a break. When you work hard, we know you also need to rest. We offer generous time off and parental leave policies, as well as mental health and wellness days for all employees. We also offer a paid Rokt’star Sabbatical for employees who have been with us for 3 years or more.
• Stay happy and healthy. Enjoy catered lunch 3 times a week and healthy snacks in the office. Plus join the gym on us! In the US, access generous retirement plans like a 4% dollar-for-dollar 401K matching plan and get fully funded premium health insurance for your whole family. And our NYC office is dog-friendly!
• Become a shareholder. All Rokt’stars have stock options. If we succeed, everyone enjoys the upside.
• See the world! Along with our global all-staff events in amazing locations (Phuket, Thailand in January 2020, Hawaii in May 2022), we also offer generous relocation packages for those interested in moving to another Rokt office. We have cool offices in great cities – New York, Sydney, London, Singapore, Tokyo.
• Get the best of both worlds with a hybrid workplace. We currently work 3 days a week in office, allowing you to enjoy the best of both worlds (please note: this is subject to change based on the needs of the business and some support roles still require a full time presence). One week per quarter, you also have the flexibility to work from anywhere.
• We believe in equality. Rokt is an Equal Opportunity Employer and recognizes that a diverse workforce is crucial to our success as a business. We would love you to apply for one of our open roles – irrespective of socio-economic status or background, age, gender identity, race, religion, sexual orientation, color, pregnancy, carer/family responsibilities, national and social origin, political opinion, marital, veteran, or disability status.
