As a Data Engineer at BetterUp, you will be joining a small team responsible for the data systems that power everything from operational efficiency of the business, to personalized product experiences, to cutting-edge behavioral research and organizational analytics.

In general, you will be responsible for understanding problems intimately, crafting a technical strategy to address problems, and facilitating high-quality technical execution.
We live by three guiding principles regarding data and analytics:
Data Accessibility: Collected data should be accessible, or appropriately inaccessible, to all services, products, and people of the organization.
Data Approachability: Data should be intuitively familiar to the observer.
Data Awareness: Cultivate a community of data-conscious practitioners.
We care very much about empowering and encouraging each and every person with data. We build for the future while delivering on high-value value objectives along the way.
