Through collaborating with Strategy, Experience Design, Data Science, Project Management, and Account teams, our technologists are paving the way for innovation and transforming the marketing landscape.


    To help with this, we’re looking for an outstanding Senior Data Engineer—someone who can design and build elegant, state-of-the-art solutions to meet our client’s data needs. Sound like you? Read on.


    What you’ll do:  


    The Data Engineering team collaborates across Digitas to implement stable, automated, and advanced data solutions. Data engineers work with analysts to simplify their media reporting needs through third-party API integrations and custom data lake implementations on AWS or GCP. Data Engineers also partner with Data Science teams to build complex solutions that collect real-time streams of site data, automate machine learning models, and send results to third-party activation platform APIs.


    As a Senior Data Engineer, you’ll manage the implementation of various data pipelines for our client projects.


    Day to day your role includes:

    • Working with data engineers to implement production-grade data pipelines and ETL processes to support leading-edge analytics and big data processing
    • Analyzing high-level business requirements and project architecture to determine and estimate development activities
    • Keeping up on the latest AWS/GCP tools that would be appropriate for new or existing projects
    • Working with vendor development teams to guide integrations and resolve technical issues
    • Evaluating and testing new data transformation tools that can be leveraged to solve client needs
    • Writing ETL code that you will unit test, document, and deploy to cloud computing platforms like AWS or GCP
    • Partnering with the Business Analysis and Data Science teams to determine ETL requirements and test scenarios
    • Guiding associate data engineers to adhere to best practices and principles
    • Researching third-party API documentation to determine implementation guidelines
    • Collaborating with DevOps to build repeatable and sustainable infrastructures



    We’re looking for strong, impactful work experience, which typically includes:

    • Mastery in at least one cloud computing platform such as AWS, GCP, or Azure
    • Expertise in cloud data management tools: AWS (Lambda, Data Pipeline, Glue) or GCP (Dataflow, Google APIs)
    • Proficiency in relational databases
    • Knowledge of backend programming languages (Java or Python preferred)
    • A solid grasp of version control systems and strategies
    • Experience in implementing service-oriented architecture
    • An understanding of DevOps activities and their role in the SDLC
    • Some experience with non-relational databases
    • Experience with shell scripts and command line tools
    • Experience in build and dependency management tools such as Maven
    • Experience with cloud security products (IAM)
    • Experience with cloud databases (BigQuery, RedShift)
    • Experience using issue tracking and knowledge base software for project tracking
    • AWS or GCP Data Engineering Certification (is a bonus)
    • Experience with deployment tools including Jenkins (is a bonus)
    • Experience with Scala (is a bonus)
    • Familiarity with data science concepts (is a bonus)
    • A background in the marketing/advertising industry (is also a plus)
