Associate Data Engineer

| Seattle
Our mission at Suplari is to shine the light on waste so that companies can invest in growth, innovation and their people. Our software delivers actionable insights from a company’s spend and procurement data by leveraging machine learning and AI, and visualizes these tailored recommendations and data trends in a clean, user-friendly interface. Customers realize hard dollar cost savings and effectively manage supplier risks that are often hidden within millions of data points and would take hours of manpower and bales of clunky spreadsheets to uncover. 
Suplari is truly making an impact for clients such as Nordstrom, 21st Century Fox, and Hulu, (just to name a few) and we’re just getting started. 
Job Description
We are looking for a technically creative and customer oriented individual who wants to make a difference and accelerate their career working in a team oriented environment as an Associate Data Engineer. The job is located at our downtown Seattle Headquarters. 
Do you like focusing on challenging problems and finding creative solutions? Would you like to help create something that makes a difference? Would you like to be part of a fast-growing company and be able to put your mark on something early? 
Suplari has created the Insights Generator, a data science and data engineering platform that combines capabilities like those found in Amazon Sagemaker, Tableau, and Trifacta to make it fast and easy to produce new insights for our customers. As a member of the product team, you will leverage Python, Pandas, and Jupyter Notebooks to build algorithms and machine learning models to identify financial insights for our customers using the Suplari Insight Generator platform. 
What you’ll do: 
  • Work with product management to identify insights that address real customer problems.
  • Create algorithms and machine learning models to identify financial insights for our customers.
  • Solve classification problems within customer supplier and financial data.
  • Perform sentiment analysis with supplier and financial data.
  • Experiment with data-science oriented projects as needed to meet customer needs.
  • You will work with data scientists, product managers, and full stack engineers to understand and help implement and integrate algorithms into the Suplari service.
  • You will build scalable data pipelines, triggered by user and system events, that will interact with data collected from relational databases, S3 buckets, file systems and RESTful endpoints.
To be successful in the role, you need to have: 
  • Intermediate proficiency with Python, R, or other scripting language is required.
  • Experience using tabular data structures like Pandas DataFrames
  • Experience using Amazon Web Services via SDKs like Boto
  • Experience using REST and other HTTP interfaces
  • Experience parsing various file formats from CSV to XML
  • Experience with advanced ANSI SQL and PostgreSQL including CTEs, materialized views, JSONB and full text search.
  • Experience building complex SQL queries to find patterns in data such as recurring transactions, outlier data points or fraudulent activity.
  • Experience working with large, semi-structured datasets like legal documents, application logs and product invoices.
  • Agility to jump into a broad range of projects.
  • Bachelor’s and/or Master’s Degree in computer science, machine learning, information systems, mathematics, or related fields is preferred. 
You’d be an excellent fit for Suplari if: 
  • You love being a part of a small, dynamic, and agile organization that encourages you to learn and grow.
  • You thrive in a highly collaborative & cross-functional engineering environment.
  • You’re a self-starter who loves finding solutions to interesting problems.
  • You welcome having autonomy with complex tasks.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I joined as a relatively new engineer with predominantly front-end code skills. My code level and ability has grown thanks to mentorship and exposure to other areas of our stack.
