Data Warehouse Engineer IV

Description

Can data really help local businesses around the world thrive?

Are you ready to test your skills using massive amounts of information to make critical business decisions?

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.

This position based out of the Bangalore office 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 lead and mentor a local team of data engineers as you partner closely with peer Analytics teams 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:

  • Operating as an Engineer and as a Manager

  • Mentoring and managing a small team of  junior data engineers

  • Partnering in squads with US-based senior engineers

  • Working on Big Data technologies including Hadoop/Hive, PySpark, Presto, EMR, S3

  • Working with cloud solutions including AWS Architecture and Teradata Vantage 

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

  • Implement data pipelines to automate the ingestion, transformation, and augmentation of both structured and unstructured data sources, and provide best practices for pipeline operations

  • Troubleshoot and remediate data quality issues raised by pipeline alerts or downstream consumers.

  • Provide advice and ideas for technical solutions and improvements to data systems

  • Create and maintain clear documentation on data models/schemas as well as transformation/validation rules

  • Implement tools that help data consumers to extract, analyze, and visualize data faster through data pipelines

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

  • Engage with stakeholders to gather requirements to deliver data solutions

 

We’re excited if you have: 

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

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

  • Experience with AWS Cloud, Teradata Vantage is a plus

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

  • Experience in managing multiple projects and stakeholders with excellent communication and interpersonal skills

  • Experience building data solutions for visualization softwares (ie: Tableau) is a plus

  • Ability to develop and organize high-quality documentation
