Data Modelling Developer

Shopify's platform generates vast swaths of information. Used properly, this information can benefit both our merchants and our company. That's why we are building a series of high-quality data sets to support these decision makers. To do this, we're looking to add an experienced data modeller to our engineering team.

You'll need to have:

  • Data modelling experience - you've demonstrated the ability to build real-world data sets from scratch and refactor existing ones
  • Data warehouse experience - you are proficient in data warehousing concepts including facts, dimensions, and star schemas, and have a familiarity with the "extract, transform, load" process.
  • Database experience - you have a familiarity with SQL query authoring, table design, database indexing, etc.
  • Extensive software development experience - you are proficient with things like software design patterns, code review, test-driven development etc.
  • Team work experience - you'll need to be comfortable working within and across teams, discussing solutions to problems, and supporting others in their goals.

It'd be great if you have experience with:

  • Python
  • Spark
  • Ruby on Rails
  • Business Intelligence: defining metrics, understanding how data is used in reports

You'll be working on things like:

  • Understanding the reporting needs of the consumer of the data
  • Working with core engineering teams as data sets are refactored, or built from scratch
  • Implementing ETLs in our data pipeline (Python, Spark)
  • Maintaining an end-to-end view of the data and how it is being used, to ensure we build the right thing
