Engineering Roles at Artsy:
We are a lean team that relies on Ruby for back-end services, Python for machine learning, Scala for data processing, and SQL for enrichment and analysis. Our stack includes Postgres, Elasticsearch, Redshift, RabbitMQ, Spark, and Hive. We integrate with services like Segment and Looker to accomplish our work, and are always evaluating new patterns, tools, and technologies.
As a Data Engineer at Artsy, you'll work on pipelines, databases, and APIs as well as critical services such as search, recommendations, and market insights. You'll architect systems for scale, and think about how to keep our complex, distributed platform resilient to data integrity issues or service disruptions.

You will lead initiatives to benefit the engineering team at-large and are comfortable working in a cross-functional matrixed environment.
About Artsy Engineering:
Artsy's engineering principles are open source. We encourage knowledge building and sharing within the larger tech community through open source software, blog posts, and other free resources. Artsy would rather proudly discover (and improve) an existing tool than build it ourselves from scratch. Through our work, we try to create more value than we capture. That means that when we learn something new, we try to share that knowledge through blog posts and open source documentation. A successful candidate will bring their own unique perspective to help us achieve this mission.
