What will you spend your time doing?
As a data engineer at Locale, you will be responsible for building and handling our data pipelines that handle 500 million pings in production. You will be orchestrating workflows, handling clusters, managing metadata, and transformations. Apart from collecting and monitoring performance metrics, you will play an integral part in discussing and implementing security best practices. Being an enterprise-focused company, our systems don't scale linearly or even exponentially. Every new customer brings the scale of millions of customers that they serve. We need to build robust, scale-ready, and fault-tolerant services from day one. Our clients rely on it.
Our tech stack:
Our applications are extremely data intensive and data consistency is our holy grail. Our infrastructure handles upwards of 50 million requests in a day. Most of our services are written in Python or Go. We use Kafka for our real-time streaming data pipelines and presto for large scale data processing. Our primary database is PostgreSQL. We use docker containers for deployment and maintain CI/CD pipelines for quick iterations and testing.
Our front-end is in VueJS and we follow a component driven architecture.
