The Opportunity: 

As a software engineer, you know that good software is more than just developing new features and writing unit tests.

You will design and deploy a Developer Portal that facilitates onboarding of data engineers, allowing them to discover existing data sources, and provision, develop, and monitor new data pipelines and products, including visualizations and reports. You will build test automation to validate new features within the Enterprise Platform prior to roll out to end users, and support deployment of bug fixes and security patches. You will ensure new features and functionality align to stakeholder expectations. In a fast-paced, agile environment, you will leverage principles of modern software development across design, development, testing, and integration of new capabilities into the platform.
