Data Engineer Jobs in SF Bay Area

Find Data Engineer Jobs in the San Francisco Bay Area

Data Engineers are an important cog in the technical makeup of any modern company. They are responsible for the inception and upkeep of the analytics infrastructure, which relates to every other source of data in a system. It is an important tech job that is involved in each step of engineering databases and processing systems, meaning they must have a firm foundation in common data language and its related tools. Whereas other data specialists, such as data scientists, may focus on what the analyzed data generates in terms of statistics, Data Engineers are focused on building the architecture for creating that data. Data Engineers are often kept busy on the job, creating, testing and improving the data analytics system.
