Senior Data Engineer



We are the company behind WordPress.com, WooCommerce, Jetpack, and more! We are looking for a full-stack Data Engineer with a head for business to join our WooCommerce team!


Communication with and empathy for our colleagues is a key part of this job – curiosity about the puzzles they face is a requirement. Data can be unruly: you’ll need to be prepared to face uncertainty and provide your best guess sometimes – your work will be as much about architecting and improving data pipelines as it will be about creating excellent reporting and solving business problems.


The Woo Data & BizOps team needs a new Data Engineer. We help inform our business and product strategy by providing insights through data analysis.


As The Data Engineer on our team, you will:



  • Work with business leads, analysts, data scientists, and fellow engineers to build data products that empower better decision-making.

  • Architect and improve data pipelines using technologies like Hadoop, Hive, Impala, and Airflow.

  • Deeply understand business drivers to craft automated, easy to use reports and data visualizations in our BI tool (we use Looker).

  • Perform exploratory business analysis and deliver clear and actionable written reports.

  • Use your JavaScript, PHP, and SQL skills to understand and improve our data sources.

  • Be constantly raising data quality. That includes auditing sources, documenting issues, driving resolutions together with other teams, and implementing well-documented, performant, and tested improvements.
