  • Develop complex ETL pipelines that transform and process petabytes of structured and unstructured data in real-time.
  • Design and architect intricate data models for optimal storage and retrieval to support sub-second latency for querying blockchain data.
  • Oversee the deployment and monitoring of large database clusters with an unwavering focus on performance and high availability.
  • Collaborate across departments, partnering with data scientists, backend engineers, and product managers to design and implement novel data models that enhance TRM’s products.

What we’re looking for:

  • A Bachelor's degree (or equivalent) in Computer Science or a related field.
  • A proven track record, with 8+ years of hands-on experience in architecting distributed system architecture, guiding projects from initial ideation through to successful production deployment.
  • Exceptional programming skills in Python, as well as adeptness in SQL or SparkSQL.
  • Versatility that spans the entire spectrum of data engineering in one or more of the following areas:
    • In-depth experience with data stores such as ClickHouse, ElasticSearch, Postgres, Redis, and Neo4j.
    • Proficiency in data pipeline and workflow orchestration tools like Airflow, DBT, Luigi, Azkaban, and Storm.
    • Expertise in data processing technologies and streaming workflows including Spark, Kafka, and Flink.
    • Competence in deploying and monitoring infrastructure within public cloud platforms, utilizing tools such as Docker, Terraform, Kubernetes, and Datadog.
    • Proven ability in loading, querying, and transforming extensive datasets.
