Company Description

Tamr is the enterprise data mastering company trusted by large enterprises like Blackstone, the US Air Force, Toyota, and GSK. The company’s patented software platform uses machine learning supplemented with human feedback to master and prepare data across myriad silos to deliver previously unavailable business-changing insights. With a co-founding team led by Andy Palmer (founding CEO of Vertica) and Mike Stonebraker (Turing Award winner) and backed by top-tier investors such as NEA and GV, Tamr is transforming how companies get value from their data.

As we rapidly grow our engineering team, we are seeking outstanding, product-minded engineers interested in building foundational services that offer high performance with an elegant interface. This is an opportunity to build enterprise software that solves the most time-consuming, manually intensive problem in data science and modern data pipelines: enriching, curating, and preparing data. Tamr’s core product applies supervised machine learning to large scale problems in data science, engineering, and integration. As part of the Platform Team, you will own Tamr’s core distributed data processing engine, and will design and implement services that maximize data pipeline performance; provide a great developer experience for data engineers and application teams; and target cloud-native technologies for hosted SaaS and hybrid-cloud deployment. You will work with a small team of exceptional colleagues to design, build, and deliver next-generation solutions.

The ideal candidate is independently minded, self-motivated, and has the experience and breadth of technical knowledge necessary to bring clarity to poorly defined problems and to find unexpected solutions. We are looking for product sense and an entrepreneurial spirit. If you care about the end-to-end development and ownership of software products - from coding through build, test, QA, deployment, management, maintenance, support, and end-user experience - then this role is for you.

Basic requirements:

  • 4+ years experience designing, building, delivering, and supporting production software
  • Comfort quickly picking up new languages and technologies
  • Brilliant problem-solving skills
  • Strong computer science fundamentals
  • Outstanding ability to communicate technical ideas, both to other engineers and to non-technical stakeholders
  • Outstanding ability to engage stakeholders to understand and discover their real problems and requirements

You might be a good fit if you have some of the below:

  • Experience with cloud platforms (GCP, AWS, Azure)
  • Hadoop/Spark experience
  • k8s experience
  • Experience supporting large-scale hosted production services
  • Tech lead or engineering management experienceDevOps experience
  • Product management experience
  • Research experience

  • PostgreSQL
  • Elasticsearch
  • Multi-cloud (GCP/AWS/Azure)

An Insider's view of Tamr

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The office vibe at Tamr is, well, to take a line from Billy Eliot, it is like "electricity." Our open-office concept is dynamic, creative, friendly, and contagious, and everyone contributes fully and genuinely to the mission!

Executive Assistant

How does the company support your career growth?

Tamrs make introductions all the time, and it is normal and expected for people to be out of the office to meet with colleagues and connections in other companies. Both for recruiting and help with understanding how people in other companies have addressed technological and organizational challenges that come up.

What makes someone successful on your team?

The key to being successful is communicating. In the sales engineering team, we of course need to communicate quickly and often with customers. Just as important is being able to communicate with others in the team and in the company. Asking questions, getting feedback, and responding to others are all critical to being an effective team member.
