The Workflow, Environment, and Execution team is responsible for:

Workflow: Designing complex pipelines, scheduling and pipeline status tracking.

Environment: Building images (docker, AMIs, and RPMs), robust infrastructure for interactive Jupyter notebooks and RStudio sessions.

  • you have at least 4 years of industry experience doing software development with exposure to data warehouses, ETL, and/or working with data scientists managing model building pipelines.
