Fountain’s all-in-one software allows companies to find and hire the right candidates faster. Our automated and customizable platform provides a seamless applicant experience while ensuring organizations have pipelines full of hourly talent who are ready to work.

Hundreds of customers, including Stitch Fix, GoPuff, Fetch, and Sweetgreen, use Fountain to hire over 3 million workers annually in more than 75 countries. 

In 2022, we closed $185M in our Series C, led by Softbank and B Capital, which 4.5Xed our valuation. Join our growing team of collaborative, compassionate, and unconventional Fountaineers as we empower our customers to exceed their hiring goals and open opportunities for the hourly workforce.

And you? You’re an experienced data engineer looking to build pipe, connect, and organize the data underpinning advanced data solutions to enable hourly workers around the globe. You’ll use your experience developing and maintaining robust, scalable data pipelines to deliver clean data to analysts and customers alike, demonstrating technical excellence and extraordinary empathy in every aspect of your work.

What you'll be doing:

    • Translating business requirements into pipelines that underpin Fountain’s internal and external data products
    • Creating and implementing processes that ensure the validity, quality, security, and privacy of data within Fountain
    • Exercising technical leadership in design discussions and code review
    • Building leverage through the teammates you mentor, the code you improve, and the culture you help grow
    • Learning every day

What you should bring:

    • Experience collaborating directly with data science and product engineering teams
    • Experience with modern data processing, orchestration, and retrieval technologies (think Glue, BigQuery, Looker, Airflow, dbt, Great Expectations, etc.)
    • 5+ years experience using a general-purpose programming language like TypeScript, Ruby (and Rails), Python, or Golang
    • Deep understanding of ETL/ELT design methodologies, architecture, strategy, and tactics for complex ETL solutions and transformation
    • Experience using infrastructure as code tools to manage public cloud infrastructure (we use Terraform with AWS/GCP)
Salary Range: $165,000 - $202,400 USD


Even if you do not meet all the requirements above, we still encourage you to apply for this position. While we try to be thorough with our prerequisites, not everything about you as a candidate can be condensed into a list of bullet points. What do you have to lose?
