It’s time to tame the chaos of payroll, benefits, and HR.


Gusto is fundamentally changing how the world works by empowering everyone to put people first. Gusto reimagines payroll, benefits, HR, and personal finance by automating the most complicated, impersonal business tasks and making them simple and delightful.

We are proud to have built a product that our customers love, and we’re looking for talented and motivated data engineers to join our growing team in the San Francisco office.

  • Be an owner as you architect, build, and refine our data infrastructure technologies, using our development workflow — the outcome of your work will drive decisions that affect billions of dollars of transactions
  • Build and refine a fault-tolerant data ingestion pipeline into our data warehouse, while helping guide the decisions about the future of our data infrastructure
  • Thoroughly evaluate edge cases, ambiguities, and architectural scalability
  • Write complex and efficient queries to transform raw data sources into easily accessible models for our teams (e.g., Product, Growth, Finance, Risk)
  • Work with data scientists to productize and develop predictive modeling pipelines
  • Care deeply about helping millions of small business owners focus on what they love
  • Be surrounded by people who are doing the best work of their lives and loving every moment of it

Here’s what we’re looking for:

  • At least 5 years of software engineering experience (Python, Ruby or Java), with at least 2 years experience in a data focused role
  • Passion for creating data infrastructure technologies from scratch using the right tools for the job
  • Experience building and maintaining a data warehouse in production environments
  • Experience with AWS tools
  • Expertise in building out data pipelines, efficient ETL design, implementation, and maintenance
  • Experience with systems for transforming large datasets such as Spark and Hadoop
  • Ability to turn vague requirements into clear deliverables with minimal guidance
  • Exposure to statistical and data mining techniques

About Gusto

We are Gusto Founded in 2011, Gusto provides payroll, benefits and HR to modern companies. We have offices in San Francisco and Denver, but thanks to our 40,000 small business customers and their employees, there’s a little piece of us in all 50 states. We believe that humans aren’t resources. When we come to work, we don’t leave our humanity at the door. We bring life with us: our feats and friendships, our adventures and aspirations. Great businesses treat us like people, not ID numbers. When that happens, work becomes a source of energy rather than fatigue. It creates a virtuous cycle where life improves work, and work improves our lives. That’s why we started Gusto. Our mission is to create a world where work empowers a better life.
