There is only one Data Cloud. Snowflake’s founders started from scratch and designed a data platform built for the cloud that is effective, affordable, and accessible to all data users. But it didn’t stop there. They engineered Snowflake to power the Data Cloud, where thousands of organizations unlock the value of their data with near-unlimited scale, concurrency, and performance. This is our vision: a world with endless insights to tackle the challenges and opportunities of today and reveal the possibilities of tomorrow.

As a Data Infrastructure Engineer you will be responsible for the architecture, and reliability of data infrastructure tooling used in the analytics and machine learning of Snowflake Services. Our infrastructure stores, and processes our most critical business operations, and therefore reliability and performance are our highest level concerns.

  • Design, implement, test, and deploy the tools that allow other members of data science and analytics teams to easily write and run effective data pipelines.
  • Develop best practices around observability and data processing, and implement the changes to make those practices a reality.
  • Implement observability systems to track data quality and consistency.
