The Data Engineering team develops modern data architecture approaches to meet key business objectives & provides end-to-end data solutions in a cloud native environment. Our industry leading distributed platform of networked devices, brings in a unique set of challenges around data engineering & distributed systems. 

Reporting to the VP of Data, this role, you will build & lead a team of talented engineers that build big data pipelines & services using distributed computing tools, such as Spark, Flink, MapReduce, & Hadoop. These data pipelines are used to power experimentation, machine learning models, & dashboards across a variety of domains, including product innovation, advertising, pricing, messaging, partnerships & such.

You will work closely with a cross-functional team of product engineers, data scientists, & business stakeholders to help grow Peloton. The data your team produces will be used to help make business decisions & inform future product strategy.

As a Director, Data Engineering, you might spend a few weeks with a team on a deep technical review, helping them understand the potential that data brings to solve their most pressing problems. With other teams, you might be acting as the architect, leading the design of technical solutions, or perhaps overseeing a program inception to build a new data product. It could also be a software delivery project where you'd be expected to code  & lead the team to implement the solution.

  • Exceptional communication skills, & can translate technical concepts into easy-to-understand language for business partners.
  • Familiarity with experimentation (i.e., A/B testing) and/or machine learning is a plus.
  • Youre passionate about craftsmanship & have applied your expertise across a range of industries & organizations
  • You have a deep understanding of data modelling & experience with data engineering tools & platforms such as Kafka, Spark, & Hadoop
  • You have built large-scale data pipelines & data-centric applications using any of the distributed storage platforms such as HDFS, S3, NoSQL databases (Hbase, Cassandra, etc.) & any of the distributed processing platforms like Hadoop, Spark, Hive, Oozie, & Airflow in a production setting
  • Hands on experience in MapR, Cloudera, Hortonworks  and/or cloud (AWS EMR, Azure HDInsights, Qubole etc.) based Hadoop distributions
  • You are comfortable taking data-driven approaches & applying data security strategy to solve business problems 
  • Youre genuinely excited about data infrastructure & operations with a familiarity working in cloud environments
