Senior Analytics Infrastructure Engineer

The Analytics Engineering Services team operates the product data stack at Box. This stack spans backend data pipelines from logtailers and product databases to object stores via Kafka pipelines. This in turn then gets consumed by variety of clusters, both on-premise and in the cloud, to provide capabilities like analytics, recommendations and search.
