We are seeking a Data Engineer to design, develop, and maintain large-scale data applications and pipelines, working closely with the Analytics & Data Science team to improve Arcadia's business through smarter use of data.

  • Manage data pipelines from disparate sources, standardizing and feeding them into our centralized data warehouse
  • Work with both the Engineering and Analytics & Data Science teams to optimize data flow and queries for large data sets to improve scalability
  • Sync data across internal and external systems, such as marketing and sales automation tools, to enable key stakeholders to build best-in-class experiences
  • Support ongoing efforts to establish and enforce best practices on data quality, use, and security across the company
