Senior Database Engineer / Spark

We’re working with a recognizable trading company based in Chicago’s loop. They are searching for a Database Engineer to help their platform run more efficiently. You’d be working heavily with relational databases to help migrate their platforms into the cloud. They haven’t begun the process, so the Engineer will have heavy influence on what technologies they use moving forward. Down the line, you’d be working on building data pipelines as they expand their services and upscale the platform.

The ideal candidate will have significant experience building data structures in Python. Candidate should be familiar working in cloud based environments, and if you have migrated an on premise application into the cloud you will be strongly considered. Any experience working with large datasets in Hadoop and Spark is great as well.
