Data Engineer Jawbone
About Jawbone?s Data team:
1. Jawbone's data is incredibly awesome: Collected at 30 hertz, 24/7, from hundreds of thousands of users, UP data touches people's lifestyles at a level of granularity that even giants like search and social can't match. It's meaningful at many scales: fractions of seconds to decipher patterns in movement and sleep; minutes and hours to construct the events that make up a user's day; weeks and months to describe the habits of individuals, communities and the world. UP data holds enormous potential for broad and lasting lifestyle improvement, and groundbreaking research on health and habit formation.
3. Our data science team is at an inflection point: We've recently invested in power tools (hadoop + cascalog and hive, plus an extremely powerful NoSQL framework for tapping realtime user data) to accelerate the data science workflow. With these tools in hand, the whole pipeline -- from queries and cleaning, to merges, aggregations and transformations, to analysis, reporting, and visualization -- is flowing faster. This is the hot moment for taking mission-critical data products from concept to delivery, a chance to put your stamp on a great product, and an opportunity to build a portfolio of user- and management-facing wins to point to later in your career.
