Tech Lead

We’re looking for ambitious engineers to help us reshape how companies make sense of their data.

Here’s a taste of what you can expect from working at BigLittleRobots:
We're an all-remote team. Work from wherever you want, whenever you want. We focus on outcomes. How you use your time to make that happen is up to you.
We're a principle-driven organization, with 4 core themes that color everything we do: care, leadership, doing the right thing, and innovation. You can read more about our principles here.
We’re a company with a big heart. We care about the success and wellbeing of each team member, in all aspects of their lives–not simply within BigLittleRobots.
We all act with leadership and autonomy. Each one of us is empowered to make decisions and given the freedom to act in the way they deem is best. That means we are self-led, take initiative, and make change happen within the company.

About BigLittleRobots

BigLittleRobots is a data services and products company with BIG ideas about how companies should access, analyze, and view data. We build innovative data products for Fortune 500 and mid-sized companies in Finance, Life Sciences, and CPG to help them unearth insights and make decisions that impact their employees, customers, and communities.
We believe that modern data analysis is in its infancy, and our goal is to deploy/build the latest tools to help clients more accurately and more efficiently make sense of the vast amounts of data they have access to.
We believe a team who brings together unique differences does better work and helps each other grow. You are celebrated and welcome to apply regardless of gender identity, race, religion, national origin, age, sexual orientation, parental status, education, neurodiversity status, disability status, and any other way in which we can be wonderfully different.

Proven experience improving engineering output and efficiency processes
Deep knowledge of SQL-based languages and Python or other similar programming languages
Expertise with data engineering concepts such as Relational database schemas, RDMS, ELT & ETL, data quality processes, and observability
Proficiency with data analysis concepts including running exploratory data analysis, understanding business users requirements, defining and implementing deep insights analyses, and choosing optimal visualization formats
Ability to work effectively in a client-facing role
Demonstrated capacity to clearly and concisely communicate complex business activities, technical requirements, and recommendations
Optionally, proficiency with modern data stack tools including Airflow, dbt, Databricks, and Snowflake
Optionally, experience hiring, mentoring, and developing career plans for engineers of all levels

What you'll get

$160,000 -$230,000 yearly salary based on your location
End-of-year bonus, based on company performance and individual performance
Unlimited paid time off
Health insurance reimbursement
Flexible working hours and location (we're an all-remote team)
20% personal time: we encourage our team members, in addition to their regular projects, to spend 20% of their time working on what they think will benefit them or the company the most
Personal budgets to spend on upgrading your tech and other expenses that will support your work at BLR
Occasional company-wide virtual and in-person events
A kind and caring leadership team dedicated to helping you grow
