Data Engineer 

Shakepay’s internal data platform powers internal reporting and decisions, product experiments and operational workloads.

You will:

  • Build ELT/ETL data pipelines responsible for data ingestion and integration from various sources (batch and streaming) into Shakepay’s internal data platform, and work closely with other stakeholders throughout the company.
  • Design, deploy and maintain the infrastructure that supports those pipelines: task orchestration, CI/CD pipelines, data governance, and data monitoring & observability. 
  • Work closely with data scientists and analytics engineers to understand their needs and support their projects. 
  • Help administer the data platform; user administration, data access policies, and performance/cost optimization.  
  • Translate business requirements into architectural designs with estimates.

Must have: 

  • Strong written and verbal communication skills and comfort operating in a remote work context. 
  • 4+ years of experience writing advanced Python and SQL code in a data context.
  • 4+ years of experience working with cloud data warehouses (we use Snowflake).
  • 3+ years of cloud architecture experience in a data context (our main cloud provider is AWS) using tools like S3, Lambda, Glue, Kinesis, among others.
  • Experience designing and maintaining scalable batch and streaming pipelines with the above tools.
  • Experience with IaC frameworks like Terraform. 

Nice to have: 

  • Familiarity with data transformation tools like dbt
  • Experience implementing data governance tools
  • Some Kubernetes experience is a plus
  • Working experience in crypto or fintech

Why join? 

  • Be part of a groundbreaking journey: you'll live on the frontier of financial innovation. Bitcoin is rewriting the rules, and Shakepay is at the forefront.
  • Impact and scale: with only 2% of Canadians on Shakepay, the potential for growth is massive. You can help us bring Shakepay and bitcoin to all Canadians.
  • Rewarding benefits: we offer competitive compensation (every shaker owns stock options), benefits (health, dental, paramedical, disability, etc), and generous vacation time.
  • Embrace continuous learning: ambitious individuals with an insatiable thirst for knowledge will feel at home. Working at Shakepay means you'll be working in an environment that encourages constant growth and development.
  • Get paid in bitcoin: choose to take a percentage of your salary in the hardest, soundest money the world has ever known.
  • Work remote: work from anywhere in Canada. If you're in Montreal or Toronto, you can also work from our offices.

We understand that potential can be just as valuable as experience. If you're eager to learn, grow, and contribute to the mission but worry that you may not have the “right” experience, we still want you to apply. We encourage applications from everyone, regardless of background and life experience. We’re firm believers that a little bit of slope makes up for a lot of y-intercept.

Fluency in English is required due to the percentage of English-speaking customers and the nature of our platform, which is available to all Canadians.
