Your role
Data is at the heart of what Gridium does. We are looking for a US-based engineer to design, develop, and scale our backend services, with a focus on data management. We collect data from dozens of sources, bringing challenges related to scalability, timeliness, reliability, and quality. 
About the job
We’re looking for someone with strong Python and relational database experience. Experience with AWS Batch, Docker, and Selenium is helpful.
