Job Description: Build data pipelines to process Terabytes and Petabytes of data. In addition to this, you may work on tools that help the team visualize, manage and maintain these pipelines. By pipeline I'm referring to ways of taking the data from the very granular source tables (from logs) and transforming them into tables that are aggregated and more usable.

"Perks were as awesome as you would expect. However, if you want work doing real software development, this is likely not the job for you. I found myself bored with the work many times. If you are into big data, this may be perfect for you"
