Your challenge 🚀
- Build a truly self-service application for business users so they can work with data even without learning SQL or needing assistance from more technically-skilled colleagues. We are democratizing access to data and making it available for anyone within an organization who needs it.
- Find ways to automate most activities users must do to reduce the time needed to prepare data, allowing them to actually use the data for their work, and make data-driven decisions.
- Create a product that contains all the features enterprise solutions must-have, while making it super-easy to use. We want to refute the myth that enterprise software must be ugly and painful to use–it’s a lie!
- Take end-to-end ownership of the whole product and not just blindly focus on coding.
What you’ll do 💻
- Co-design, extend, improve, and optimize the Python microservices and workers utilizing both established and in-house machine learning algorithms (relationship discovery, recommendation, anomaly detection, deduplication, and more to come).
- Continually improve how our code can be operated in a cloud-native environment (comprehensive metrics and alerts, understandable logs, robustness, idempotency, horizontal scaling, reduction of in-memory state and other aspects of a well-behaved distributed application).
- Participate in discussions about new features and closely cooperate with our researchers, so you’ll be contributing and learning at the same time.
- Participate in API design (gRPC, GraphQL, REST) and the integration of our Python microservices with the rest of the platform. Contribute to our CI/CD pipeline, participate in peer reviews, and write automated tests to maintain the high quality of the codebase.
Is this you? 💪
- You might not tick all the boxes but we still want to hear from you!
- You can write readable, idiomatic, linter-clean, production-ready Python code with maintainable Pytest test cases and fixtures.
- You enjoy constantly learning new things and sharing your knowledge with others.
- You prefer readability and simplicity, and eliminate artificial complexity wherever possible.
- You’re not afraid of diving into communication patterns for distributed applications, cloud-native patterns, and maintainable API design.
- You have some prior experience using SQL databases, distributed systems and/or ETL/ELT workflows (Dask, Prefect, Airflow).
- You know how to deploy code to a Kubernetes cluster (Argo, Kustomize/Helm). You’re not afraid to propose new approaches supported by sound reasons, yet willing to find a win-win solution that may sometimes be different from your original idea.
- Alternatively, you’re willing to adopt the DevOps mindset (how well the app is operated in production is your business) and learn more about deploying applications to a Kubernetes cluster.
- You can clearly communicate your progress, ask for help, provide non-threatening feedback, and document your results.
- You prefer prevention and proactivity over firefighting and hacking.
- Cython/C/Rust or Numba
- Deeper understanding of the analytical side of SQL
- Experience with big data and/or Spark
- Machine learning or deep learning frameworks
- Operational experience with managing workloads on a Kubernetes cluster (for example via Argo, Kustomize or Helm)

Your team 😍
- We are looking for python engineers into two teams: Data Governance and Data Stories
- To learn more about Data Governance, read an article from our Data Governance Spaceport Leader David Kolínek: Why Data Governance Can Be as Sexy as Building Rockets.
- To learn more about Data Stories Spaceport, visit our website.
- If you want to learn more about our Product & Engineering structure, how it works, and why our teams are called Spaceports, you can take a look at our Chief Product & Technology Officer Martin Zahumensky’s articles where he describes this and more in full detail.
What happens next? 🔜
- We’ll quickly review your application and let you know whether we’re a good fit to move forward.
- You’ll have your first chat with Šárka & Michal just so we can get to know each other better, understand your motivation for applying, and make sure you know all the important things about us.
- Depending on your seniority, you may have another interview or two with teammates from the Python Circle and your hiring manager.
- We’ll finish the interviews with lunch, so you can meet your future team.
- The whole process shouldn’t take longer than a week or two.
