This new team will own the design and execution of building out a new ingestion pipeline platform. Taking learnings from our past endeavors you will help shape the future of how we ingest and deliver employee data from 3rd parties to the rest of the Culture Amp platform. This requires careful consideration to be able to quickly and cheaply scale to the high ingestion demands of our customers, while keeping maintenance and support issues to a minimum.

Research shows that while men apply to jobs when they meet an average of 60% of the criteria, women and other marginalized folks tend to only apply when they check every box. So if you think you have what it takes, but don't necessarily meet every single point on the job description, please still get in touch. We'd love to have a chat and see if you could be a great fit.
