Senior Data Engineer - Merchant Success

Our products are used by millions of small merchants to process payments in over 33 countries worldwide. The vision of the Merchant Success Tribe is to become true partners to our merchants by helping them drive their business growth and deliver an effortless issue resolution and educational experience. 

As a Senior Data Engineer, you’ll be instrumental in both setting the foundation and building intelligent solutions that allow our merchants to seamlessly use our products.

  • Work within a cross-functional team to deliver and evolve predictive models end-to-end.
  • Build tooling to ensure model interpretability and provide clear performance metrics for a range of stakeholders.
  • Deepen your knowledge of warehousing, ETL, training, validation, model deployment and monitoring.
