You’ll work with world-class data engineers to design and build the scalable, robust, and high-quality data infrastructure and data pipelines needed to support the growth of our education network and SaaS platform. Ultimately, you’ll help change the landscape for how we think about delivering education products to learners across the country by building a digital solution that connects students, employers, and universities to deliver education at an affordable price to students.

A day in our open, collaborative workspace might look like:

  • On-boarding a new partner to the Guild ecosystem, whether it be an Academic or an Employment partner.

  • Of learners & problem-solvers dedicated to our dual mission of changing education in America while building a successful, high-growth company
  • Committed to building a diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment that you’d support every day

What you’ll add to Guild – as an individual and part of the broader team:

  • Passion for higher education and our mission – Guild is pioneering a new path for education as a benefit in a complicated and regulated space – success means quickly and effectively adapting your expertise
  • Fluency with one or more programming languages such as Java or Python
  • Experience with job orchestration systems such as Apache Airflow 
  • Understanding of database technologies such as Redshift, PostgreSQL, Snowflake, and working with large and disparate datasets
  • Understanding of cloud technology services such as Amazon Web Services
  • A proven ability to thrive in changing environments by having a fast, flexible, cooperative work style
  • Strong communication skills and the ability to effectively explain technical concepts to other engineers, analysts, product managers, and stakeholders.
  • Experience with BI tools such as Looker, Tableau, Kibana, Chart.io, etc.
  • A drive to work hard and plan for how you can refresh/recharge while working in a startup
  • Something else? Wonderful, we’re curious to learn more about you!

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Since my humble beginning as a Guild Intern, I have had opportunities afforded to me that stretch me in ways that align with my values and push me to be a little uncomfortable while still having welcome support. I’m now in a position where I get to learn first-hand from experts that I don’t believe I was qualified for before working at Guild.

Paco

Senior Associate of University Operations

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

My team works on ensuring that new users can find what they need and engage with our platform easily. Many of the technical challenges we face involve scaling the early-stage version of Guild’s app into something more flexible for our next growth phase. We deal with the difficult (but fascinating!) tradeoffs of these decisions every day.
