Job Title: Senior Software Engineer (ETL)

Our client continues to grow and onboard new clinics, our data migration/ETL processes also grow in scope and complexity, with a need for more bespoke solutions. To satisfy this demand, we are establishing a DataSync team whose primary function will be to build out and own any-and-all processes which capture and bring external data into our client.

As a senior software engineer on the DataSync team, you will be responsible for independently designing, building, and maintaining robust ETL systems from the ground up. The primary objective mostly consists of building bespoke data extraction tooling. The ideal candidate should thrive in an autonomous work environment, taking ownership of their work and demonstrating a high level of expertise in the previously stated domain.

This is a completely greenfield project; the only real constraint is to deliver high-quality software within the given timeline, with an expectation to maintain and iteratively improve our ETL processes, new and existing alike. Given a period of onboarding and some general collaboration to get the project off the ground, most of your time will be focused on system design and programming with minimal supervision and little to no context switching.
