The Company

Databox, a fast-growing SaaS company that helps other companies monitor and improve their business performance, is looking for an experienced Data Engineer, who will be responsible for the development and continuous improvement of data pipelines.


The Team

Our Product and Engineering team has 45 members with extensive experience in UI/UX design, frontend/mobile/backend development, product growth, and analytics. Our backend infrastructure is split into several major components including data calculations (crunching user data), data rendering, application business logic, and other traditional MVC components. The majority of our applications and services are built using Node.js, Typescript, Python, PHP, and .NET. PostgreSQL is used for our databases and our main data warehouse. Our warehouse is growing rapidly and loading, transforming, and calculating the data is becoming more and more challenging.


As our needs evolve, we keep exploring new tools and ideas and love working alongside people who are willing to try new things. Mentoring, code reviews, writing tests, and engaging in blameless postmortems are only some of our core engineering principles. We celebrate achievements, encourage personal growth, structure knowledge sharing, and have fun doing it all.

  • Build and maintain efficient and scalable data pipelines
  • Implement data ingestion and transformation processes for analytics
  • Build data-intensive solutions that are highly available, scalable, secure and cost-effective
  • Perform data validation tests
  • Monitor data pipeline performance and troubleshooting
  • Integrate data from multiple data sources for other teams and platforms
  • Cooperate with other teams to come up with the best technical solutions


The Skills

  • 3+ years of experience developing data processing and storage solutions
  • Advanced SQL knowledge and experience working with relational databases
  • Understands efficient data warehousing designs
  • Programming skills (Python is preferable)
  • Experience with building scalable data engineering pipelines
  • Good knowledge of distributed processing technologies (Hadoop, Spark, Kafka, Dataproc)
  • Getting-things-done attitude


Nice to have

  • Understanding of data streaming concepts
  • Experience using container-based technologies
  • Comfortable with orchestration tools such as Airflow or Cloud Composer
  • Experience with cloud computing platforms (GCP is preferable)


The Benefits

We encourage our employees to challenge themselves, learn from each other, grow in their roles, and balance their work with life.  We offer competitive compensation, an opportunity for personal and professional development, and a positive team atmosphere.


Databox is a remote-friendly company with over 100 team members working across the globe. This position, however, is best suitable for a candidate located near Ptuj, Slovenia, with the possibility of working from home a few times per week.
