The Data Platform Architecture team in the Core Data Platform organization is responsible for architecture and design of the data on PayPal's live site that strengthens the existing data platforms for our customers, improves the core experiences of our customers on these data platforms, and builds new data platforms for the future needs of our customers.
As a Data Engineer on the Data Platform Architecture team you will be responsible for being a trusted partner with several of PayPal's various business unit domain specific product engineering organizations to design and deliver their data solutions that support their defined high priority business initiatives.
You will be embedded in these product engineering teams in a key data engineering specific role as part of their development team contributing on their data specific deliverables from design through to their production deployment of the data.

Not only are these opportunities identified but you will drive these data platform improvements to be delivered.
You will analyze new and existing code that accesses the data as well as the associated data platform configurations to identify and deploy changes that improve the performance. You will identify sub-optimal queries and do the hands-on query performance tuning and associated performance recommendations on how to re-factor these sub-optimal queries.
