As Data Platform Engineer, you will grow our business by applying knowledge of data architectures, APIs, and the delivery and transformation of data in a reliable way and help us expand globally.

The ideal candidate is passionate about developing software and working with data, can challenge the status quo, and redesign existing solutions. In addition, the ideal candidate is a great teammate and always willing to collaborate with others.

You’re responsible for helping build and maintain the data pipeline architecture of Mural, as well as writing APIs and tools to help other teams work with data.

  • Show initiative, completing your tasks and providing timely status updates to the rest of your team and all of the customers, collaborators, and partners.
  • Take full ownership of the solutions you build. This means analyzing requirements, building, tracking, and monitoring them, and troubleshooting them if problems arise.
