We’re looking for an experienced Infrastructure Engineer to help us build out a new multi-tenant offering in Azure. Over the past year, we have built a next-generation cell-based architecture, and we are now ready to create a highly-available, highly scalable offering in Azure that is at parity with our AWS offering.

You’ll be joining a collaborative team of engineers creating a reliable and performant infrastructure platform. As a Senior Engineer on the team you will prioritize and tackle problems as they arise, working iteratively with internal and external stakeholders to deliver a great developer experience and stability for our clients.

  • Have the ability to break down complex technical concepts and communicate them to business stakeholders
  • Have a systematic problem-solving approach coupled with strong communication skills and a sense of ownership and drive

Who we are

At dbt Labs, we have developed strong opinions on how companies should practice analytics.

Specifically, we believe that:

  • Code, not graphical user interfaces, is the best abstraction to express complex analytic logic
  • Data analysts should adopt similar practices and tools to software developers
  • Critical analytics infrastructure should be controlled by its users as open source software
  • Analytic code itself — not just analytics tools — will increasingly be open source

It turns out that a lot of other people believe this too! Today, there are 30,000 companies using dbt every week, 100,000 dbt Community members, and 4,100 companies paying for dbt Cloud. Our customers include JetBlue, Hubspot, Vodafone New Zealand, and Dunelm. dbt is synonymous with the practice of analytics engineering, defining an entire industry. We’re backed by top investors including Andreessen Horowitz, Sequoia Capital, and Altimeter.
