Senior Data Engineer
Portland, OR
 

Are you the senior data engineer Cirium (formerly FlightGlobal) is looking for? Cirium has grown its portfolio significantly through the acquisition of leading data intelligence companies, including Ascend, Innovata, Diio and FlightStats.

 

Cirium is looking for a data engineering expert to work in a cross-functional agile team with the charter of bringing all of the company’s existing data assets into a structured, well-organized, and governed data lake. You will work in the Portland office alongside skilled engineers, program managers, architects, and subject matter experts with the goal of accelerating the adaptation of the data lake among the long-lived teams throughout the company and across several time zones. Your core efforts will be focused on collaborating to understand existing complex systems and the touchpoints at which they produce valuable sets of data and then developing strategies to extract this data and load it into the lake. Over the longer term, you will be able to share your knowledge and expertise to help build the future of the company’s data governance and curation strategies.
