About Button, Inc.

Job Description

Button's mission is to build a better way to do business in mobile. Today, we work with some of the largest and most interesting businesses in the world, to connect consumers with what they want at the tap of a button. We build with the consumer experience in mind, and we have a reputation for paving the future of mobile and enjoying the road to get there. Data is at the very core of proving we're on the right track and building our next generation of products-and that's where you come in.

As a Senior Data Engineer, you will build and evolve the systems responsible for ingesting, processing, and analyzing the data streams that drive key decisions we and our customers make. You will work on integrating machine learning and ETL systems that process billions of events, built on Kinesis, Redshift, SQS, and Airflow, and written in Python and Go. You will create the tools and frameworks that empower Button's Data team and ultimately anyone at Button who needs to work with data at scale. As we grow, a significant part of your role will be to 'make the case' for new approaches and technologies when you see opportunity.


* Take end-to-end ownership of projects that expand our data platform, including batch and stream processing, storage and warehousing, and integrating machine learning into new or existing products.
* Articulate the opportunities available to us and make the case for the technical priorities of our data platform, while clearly identifying and navigating tradeoffs.
* Collaborate across Engineering teams on projects from design to delivery, pulling in appropriate experts and stakeholders for your own work as well as consulting on projects owned by other teams.
* Define best practices and design for the management of our unique and evolving data assets.
* Level up our Data and Engineering teams by mentoring your colleagues and contributing to design discussions.


* Experience with and opinions about the entire landscape of data infrastructure, with a bias towards pragmatism over perfection. Right now, we make heavy use of ECS, Redshift, Airflow, and BigQuery - but we are eager to learn more.
* Strong fundamentals including SQL, databases, schema design and ETL best practices.
* Programming experience in Python, Go, or similar. Experience writing production code that others can understand. Bonus points for experience with the Python scientific stack.
* Open and active in sharing knowledge as well as excellent communication skills.


* Brad Groff, Director of Data: Brad is the head of the Data team at Button. Before joining us, he ran data science and data engineering at Ordergroove, and managed data science teams at Capital One and Booz Allen Hamilton. In his free time, he can be found engaging in lengthy discussions with his daughter on topics such as which colors are his favorite colors and why, how some monsters can be nice and others can be mean (but sometimes just because they're hungry), and which things are the silliest things.
* Mike Wakerly, CTO: Mikey is Button's Hawaiian shirt enthusiast and Chief Technology Officer. A former Googler and a San Francisco transplant, he loves mountain biking, tinkering on electronics, and any excuse to take a road trip.
* James (or Jimmy) McGill, VP of Engineering: Hailing formerly from both Australia and Google, he spends his weekends hiking, surfing and designing and building furniture. See James for all of your Vegemite needs.
* Mijail Gomez, Data Science Engineer: has worked on event ingestion, data processing frameworks, data standardization, and experimentation frameworks. He loves having discussions on data architecture, systems and tech. Before Button he was in SF working in early stage startups. Outside of work he enjoys soccer, hiking, and exploring new burger places in NYC.


* Button was founded in 2014. We believe and invest in individual and organizational growth, and we've got the results to back it up. We've raised over $64 million in venture capital and have been recognized year after year as one of the best places to work by Fortune, Inc., Entrepreneur, and Crain's.
* We value diversity and come from all sorts of different backgrounds. Some of our teammates hail from big tech companies like Google and Uber, other tech startups, and big finance companies. And for several folks on our team, Button is their first tech job. Regardless of where you're from, we look for teammates excited to grow with one of our core team values: "We are all students and we are all teachers".

Button is committed to being a welcoming and inclusive workplace for everyone, and we are intentional about making sure people feel respected, supported and connected at work-regardless of who you are or where you come from. We value and celebrate our differences and we believe being open about who we are allows us to do the best work of our lives.
