Data Engineer

We strive to simplify investing and empower financial independence for all.

YieldStreet connects investors to investment opportunities in alternative asset classes like real estate and litigation finance. YieldStreet was built because our founders were frustrated by the lack of options regular investors had to participate in potentially higher return investment opportunities that also had low correlation to the stock market. Further, technology can greatly improve the fundraising process for many borrowers. We believe top notch technology and data can help us build the world’s most robust alternative investment marketplace to connect investors with borrowers.

And, we’ve been growing like crazy. Join us on this amazing journey.

As our first software engineer dedicated to our data platform you will be responsible for designing, building and scaling our data infrastructure. You will be the bridge between our engineering, data science and business teams - owning the data stack as well as aggregating, analyzing, predicting, and visualizing data and performance.

What You’ll Do

  • Partner with our engineering team to build and optimize data pipelines from our database, website analytics, marketing analytics, and other financial data sources
  • Build a data warehouse that is easily accessible and understandable for business teams to run saved reports and ad-hoc analysis
  • Partner with our data science team to uncover investor and underwriting insights
  • Partner with our marketing, product and investments team with special projects and ad-hoc analysis
  • Build processes for ensuring data quality

Required Skills

  • BS/MS degree or track record of success in a heavily quantitative field
  • 2+ years of experience, including experience designing and scaling data infrastructure, models, and pipelines
  • Advanced fluency in SQL, NoSQL & Excel
  • Experience with a major coding language (e.g: Python, R)
  • Deep knowledge around a variety of data tools and technologies including data warehouse and data visualization

Benefits

We offer an attractive market salary, stock option plan, health & dental benefits, life insurance, 401(k), paid vacation and holidays and that's before you even step in the office!
This is an opportunity to work with a group of diverse, smart, and friendly people from 8 different countries who speak a total of 17 different languages. Our team is comprised of successful entrepreneurs with combined exits of over $1B, and we get social with each other during happy hours in our work hard/play hard culture. Perhaps the best benefits are the tons of free snacks (Goldfish and Granola are our favorites, but always taking suggestions) and a variety of top tier scotch and whiskies at the company bar.
We're located in NoHo and surrounded by plenty of downtown culture with a vibrant dining and social scene. Our building is steps away from the BDFM, NQR & 6 trains, (and a few more steps from the ACE).

*** Please, no solicitors or recruiters. We're saving our dollars to pay the right candidate!
