Inaugural Data Engineer

About Pragmatik AI

Do you want to be an inaugural data engineer at a startup where you have influence over the direction the company takes? If yes, we’d love to hear from you.

Pragmatik AI is on a mission to modernise eCommerce data analytics.

For too long eCommerce merchants have relied on disjointed, low resolution and stale data. Pragmatik AI has built a modern data collection & processing platform and is now building algorithms to unlock the future of eCommerce; real-time automation.

Our customers want tools to help them personalise shopping experiences and provide marketing automation. The event-based information we collect is processed and turned into algorithms that power ad attribution, ad campaign automation and real-time on-site merchandising tools.

We’re a privately funded and high growth tech startup. Our focus is on growing revenue and not diluting shares through VC funding.

The Role

Pragmatik AI requires a data engineer to drive the development of our data processing engine. We’re looking for an individual who has practical, hands-on experience building battle tested, end-to-end ETL pipelines. We ingest data from a variety of APIs and from our own internal data collection tools. You’ll enjoy this role if you love to eek performance time-wise and cost-wise out of data processing systems. The infrastructure you’ll be contributing to is at the heart of all our data operations, and you’ll be involved across all of our projects.

  • Enhancing Pragmatik AI’s eCommerce tracking scripts
  • Leading the development of our real-time analytics pipeline

  • Architectural decision making

The ideal candidate is self-starting, ambitious and an effective communicator. In particular, this role will be a great fit for a seasoned data engineer who’s looking to grow a team and software from the ground up. You’ll be a founding engineer at Pragmatik AI and work closely with the founders and stakeholders to ensure our data operations run efficiently.
