Data Engineer - Remote

Madrid, Spain
From smartphones to connected cars, location data is changing the way we live and the way business happens. CARTO is the platform that turns location data into more efficient delivery routes, better behavioral marketing, strategic store placements, and much more.

Everyone, from business analysts to developers and data scientists, use our software and location data to understand where and why things happen, optimize business processes, and predict future outcomes.

Data is more important than ever and the information distilled from it is crucial to take meaningful decisions. We are currently investing in growing the portfolio of third party data sources we work with (check out our Spatial Data Catalog). This means that we are continuously evaluating the value that data from new providers can bring to our customers, we analyse it to understand how it compares to other equivalent data sources, and once we decide to include it as part of our offering we ensure our Data Science, Product and Solutions teams have the right tools to work with it.

As a Data Engineer, you will become a data wrangler. You will take tons of data coming from very heterogeneous data sources, evaluate them to decide which ones are the most interesting for our company strategy, and write code to refine and transform them to allow our customers to extract valuable information from them leveraging the CARTO technologies.

  • Develop processes and ETL scripts to manipulate the data and to automate the integration processes to make it ready to be consumed in the CARTO platform.
  • Develop, test and maintain solutions and tools for the data science team; improving data reliability and quality before it is used for statistical modelling.

  • Present your work both to internal decision makers, and at conferences, meet-ups and leading workshops around spatial data science.
  • Keep up to date on new developments from industry and academia and presenting and educating the wider company at CARTO 

You offer

  • Passion for data, initiative, a can-do attitude and eagerness to learn with a collaborative mindset
  • 3 or more years experience working in the data space; with experience working in the GIS / Location Intelligence industry giving extra points.

  • Affinity for math problems and algorithms.
  • Experience working with teams in multiple locations and cultures.

We offer

  • Competitive, results-based compensation.
