Sr. Data Engineer (Remote)

Job description

Sr. Data Engineer
Location - This is a remote position that we are looking to hire in Switzerland. We have a central office in San Diego, California (United States) as well as a group of remote employees in Mexico and we are looking to expand into Switzerland. To qualify you must have an address and be eligible to work in Switzerland. All employees are currently and will continually have a work from home option as well as an office if it makes sense post pandemic. Although this will be a remote position there may be opportunities to travel and train in the United States and Mexico from time to time if the employee wants. Travel will not be a requirement only an option.
Flexibility - While we navigate the waters in starting a new company location in Switzerland a level of flexibility will be required.
  • Until we get our entity set up (Sep/Oct 2021) we will need to first hire you as a contractor.
  • We also need someone who can start within a reasonable time period (2-4 weeks). If you are currently in an extended work commitment that most likely will not work.
  • Ideal hours would be 12pm - 8pm CET (Swiss time), 3am - 11am PST (California time) for proper working overlap and team interaction. For the on-boarding period (2-3 months) this will need to be strict and then after that we can be more flexible. Possibly 2-3 days strict schedule with 2 flexible.
