Title: Big Data Architect (Data Infrastructure)
Date Posted: 2017-12-05
Location: Europe

Heetch is a ride-sharing app with a simple mission: we want people to enjoy their night out. Every night, our drivers are doing everything to make your ride, and your night, unforgettable and friendly: good music, candies and beverages in every car! We are focusing on young people expectations and compete with many actors on this segment.

The service has been launched in Paris in September, 2013 and is growing very fast since then, with thousands of rides every night in France, Italy, Sweden and Belgium.
With more than 1 million users in Europe, we are proud to be one of the French fastest growing startup!


*** We offer flexible and full remote work over Europe.
We are not ready yet to work with people outside EU but will keep you posted on that ;) ***

By joining the Data Infrastructure Team you will build the distributed components, systems and tools that power all the decisions at Heetch.

Our millions of rides create an incredibly rich dataset that needs to be transformed, exposed and analyzed in order to improve the various products Heetch is made of.

As a member of the team you will design and grow our existing infrastructure, while democratizing data access in the company by promoting its correct use for analytics and machine learning purposes.
You'll lead the Data Infrastructure Team at Heetch which is quite new and will have the opportunity to shape its direction and have a large impact.

You will create and build a proper data infrastructure from scratch and tools so your stakeholders can leverage the mountain of data we generate :

Real-time streaming infrastructure: to allow our core services to work on accurate data with minimal delays.
Machine learning infrastructure: to enable our Data Science and Backend engineering teams to implement models on top of large datasets
BI infrastructure: to enable anyone in the company to have access to the right data.
Event Driven architecture: to enforce a communication paradigm on how data is published and consumed.

Big Data's world is evolving fast so you'll ensure our infrastructure's sustainability, scalability and efficiency by updating constantly your knowledge.
You will boost our culture about data by sharing your knowledge to both your peers and engineers from other specialities.
This "list" is not exhaustive right? You'll be the one to design the future of the role depending on choices you'll propose.

- Always improve: we value personal progress and want you to look back proudly on what you've done.
