Job Description

About the Role:

Camunda is looking for a Data Engineer to assume the role of Tech Lead on our Data Team.

With responsibilities spanning the maintenance of dbt instances, custom pipelines, and CI/CD processes, you will play a key role in advancing our data-driven decision-making capabilities.

Camunda's Data Team, established just over a year ago, is at the forefront of transforming the organization into a data-driven powerhouse. Comprising data analysts, an analytics engineer, and a manager, the team is actively shaping the company's data landscape. Leveraging SaaS and custom ETL pipelines, reverse ETL, dbt, and visualization tools, we are building a modern data stack. Our team's mission is to champion effective data acquisition, storage, processing, and utilization, fostering a culture of data stewardship and continuous improvement.

As the Data Engineer and Tech Lead, you will lead architectural improvements to the data infrastructure, collaborate closely with Data Analysts and Analytics Engineers, and ensure the optimization of query design and performance. Your role extends to building monitoring infrastructure for data pipelines, implementing best practices in DataOps, and fostering a collaborative environment. The ideal candidate will be a hands-on data engineer, well-versed in data warehouse performance optimization, CI/CD processes, and infrastructure as code.

What You’ll Be Doing:

  • Lead architectural enhancements to the data infrastructure to optimize data warehouse performance for efficiency and scalability.

  • Build and maintain monitoring infrastructure for data pipelines and warehouse to detect potentially invalid data faster

  • Enhance CI/CD processes with a focus on data quality testing

  • Develop custom data ingestion integrations and manage overall pipeline orchestration

  • Drive continuous improvement in product quality, security, and performance

What you bring:

  • Professional experience using Python for data processing, including data-related Python packages

  • Strong data modeling skills and several years of experience with dbt. Familiarity with the Kimball methodology, data mesh, and semantic layer

  • Experience in deploying, operating, and evolving data pipelines in the cloud (batching and streaming)

  • Strong communication skills, enjoys sharing knowledge and learning collaboratively

  • You thrive in taking ownership of the codebase, as well as how you deploy and operate software. You are comfortable with the “you build it, you run it” mindset.

  • Ability and/or willingness to use our product.

Nice to Have:

  • Knowledge of Infrastructure as code tools such as Terraform

  • 5+ years of Data Engineer experience

If you don’t think you meet all of the criteria but are still interested in the job, please apply. Nobody checks every box - we’re looking for candidates that are particularly strong in a few areas, and have some interest and capabilities in others.
