Senior Data Engineer / Data Architect (Data Pipeline)


REALSCOUT | Senior Data Engineer / Data Architect - Data Pipeline | REMOTE (minimum 5-hour overlap with Pacific US Timezone) | Full-Time

This role is specifically to work on our data pipeline - the core of our technology. We're flexible on title; the only hard requirement is that you're senior in experience.  The pipeline is responsible for providing agents, brokers, and homebuyers real estate updates from 100+ nation-wide data feeds as quickly as possible. We’re looking for someone with at-scale experience to make improvements in and to the pipeline’s architecture -- currently Apache Airflow, Golang, Python, AWS, and Postgres, but flexible. Deployment, logging, metrics collection, SLA improvements: everything is fair game!

A typical week will entail:

  • Ensuring perfect replication of 100+ real estate data feeds with as little lag as possible
  • Scaling a daily emailer from 100k to 1m personalized sends
  • Expanding our set of attributes that no one else in the industry has, like "stainless steel appliances" and "near Google shuttle stops"


  • Experience with medium-to-large data pipelines: implementing, testing, instrumenting, and deploying
  • Experience with stream processing tools such as Kafka, Kinesis, Spark, Storm, and/or Flink
  • Familiarity with Python+Go (bonus points for Ruby, which the main website runs)
  • Familiarity with automated unit and integration testing
  • Experience with a wide variety of data stores such as PostgreSQL, ElasticSearch, and Redshift
  • Experience with one major cloud provider (Google, Azure, AWS). AWS a plus.
