Data Warehouse Engineer II

Description

Can data really help local businesses around the world thrive?

Groupon’s mission is to become the daily habit in local commerce and fulfill our purpose of building strong communities through thriving small businesses by connecting people to a vibrant, global marketplace for local services, experiences and goods. In the process, we’re positively impacting the lives of millions of customers and merchants globally. Even with thousands of employees spread across multiple continents, we still maintain a culture that inspires innovation, rewards risk-taking and celebrates success. If you want to take more ownership of your career, then you're ready to be part of Groupon.

As a part of our Commercial organization, our Revenue Management Analytics and Platform teams strive to be the voice of the customer in the decisions Groupon makes. We develop and use cutting-edge data technologies to sift through large amounts of data and distill it into information about our customers' wants and needs. We then integrate these insights into our automated decision-making systems to constantly improve our services.

As a Data Engineer you will be part of our Revenue Management Analytics Data COE, tasked with improving the data infrastructure that guides decision-making across Marketing, Merchandising, Sales & Ops, Product, and the broader Revenue Management team. You will partner closely with the Analytics team to create data-driven solutions to business problems. The ability to conceptualize and create user-friendly self-service solutions is critical to be successful in this role. Our business is evolving quickly and we need you to think long term, but deliver incrementally.

We're a "best of both worlds" kind of company. We're big enough to have resources and scale, but small enough that a single person has a surprising amount of autonomy and can make a meaningful impact. We're curious, fun, a little intense, and kind of obsessed with helping local businesses thrive. Does that sound like a compelling place to work?

You’ll spend time on the following:

  • Leading the entire software lifecycle including hands-on development, code reviews, testing, deployment, and documentation for batch ETL's.

  • Coordinating data movement between systems and tools.

  • Developing, automating and maintaining new data sources that help drive the business .

  • Architecting a new modern event driven architecture to fit AWS processing model (EMR + Spark, S3).

  • Working on Big Data technologies including Hadoop/Hive, PySpark, and Presto.

  • Other technologies you’ll get to work with include Snowflake for reporting and Airflow for orchestration.

  • Operating in an agile model leveraging scrum methodologies and Jira tools.

  • Migrating existing data pipelines from on-prem regional data centers to AWS cloud.

​We’re excited about you if you have: 

  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or equivalent with substantial data engineering experience.

  • 3+ years of recent hands-on experience with a modern programming language (Scala, Python, Java) is required; Spark/Pyspark is preferred.

  • At least 3+ years of recent hands-on SQL programming experience in a Big Data environment is required; Hadoop/Hive experience is preferred.

  • Experience working in AWS cloud landscape is required.

  • Experience developing and maintaining ETL applications and data pipelines using big data technologies is required; Airflow experience is a plus!

  • Ability to manage multiple stakeholders with excellent communication and interpersonal skills is a must .

  • Understanding of full software development life cycle, agile development and continuous integration.

  • Excellent understanding of data warehousing and modeling concepts (E.g., Star and snowflake schemas).

  • Ability to model data and develop reporting solution from scratch.

  • Prior e-commerce experience is a big plus.
