  • Leveraging your experience to design solutions that will be the backbone of a highly scalable, reusable, backend data infrastructure
  • Ensuring our data is clean, accurate, and secure
  • Thriving in fast-paced and scaling environment

You’ll join a team:

  • 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:

  • Experience building data pipelines, custom ETL processes and data warehouses
  • Experience with one or more programming languages such as Java or Python
  • Expertise in database technologies such as Snowflake, Redshift, PostgreSQL, and working with large sets of data
  • Experience improving software products through engineering best practices such as refactoring, reusability, TDD and continuous integration
  • 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.
  • Basic experience in statistical analysis, text processing, and machine learning
  • 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
  • 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!

We feel passionately about equal pay for equal work, and transparency in compensation is one vehicle to achieve that. Total compensation for this role is market competitive, including a base salary range of $160,000 -$178,750, as well as company stock options.

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.
