Data Platform Team @Heetch

The Data Platform team at Heetch is responsible for offering high SLOs in terms of automated data ingestion, security, and availability - as well as providing schedule and compute resources for the entire company to leverage.
By joining the Data Platform Team you will build the distributed components, systems and tools that power all the decisions at Heetch. Our millions of rides create an incredibly rich dataset that needs to be transformed, exposed and analyzed in order to improve the various products Heetch is made of.

As a member of the team you will design and grow our existing infrastructure, while democratizing data access in the company by promoting its correct use for analytics and machine learning purposes.

Our team's values
• Move smart: We are data driven, and employ tools and best practices to ship code quickly and safely (continuous integration, code review, automated testing, etc).
• Distribute knowledge: We want to scale our engineering team to a point where our contributions do not stop at the company code base. We believe in the Open Source culture and communication with the outside world.
• Leave code better than you found it: Because we constantly raise the bar.
• Unity makes strength: Moving people from A to B is not as easy as it sounds but, we always keep calm and support each other.
Always improve: We value personal progress and want you to look back proudly on what you’ve done.
