We are looking for a Senior Software Engineer - Data Engineering

Compensation: $175,000-$235,000 including superannuation, plus employee equity plan grant & world class benefits.

We're currently looking for a number of senior engineers to join our data engineering team, who are currently building a massive open-source data storage and ingestion platform to support the entire Rokt ecosystem. Ideally we're looking for someone with extensive experience running Apache Iceberg, Spark, Cassandra, Kafka, Trino and similar open-source platforms, but if you're a strong software engineer with experience with large-scale data systems, we'd love to talk.

About the Role:

  • Build and scale complex data systems built on open-source technologies like Apache Kafka, Spark, Cassandra, Iceberg, Trino, etc.
  • Build bespoke solutions using those open source technologies as a hands on engineer, cutting production-level code
  • Solve technical problems of the highest scope, complexity, and ambiguity as an individual contributor
  • Proactively identify and propose improvements to the current system architecture that emphasises performance, reliability and scalability
  • Act as both an engineer and system architect, as this team is constantly researching and developing new theories and ways of working


About You:

  • 7+ years experience as a software engineer, ideally working with and around large amounts of data
  • Extensive experience with open source data tooling like Kafka, Spark, Iceberg etc. would be ideal
  • Solid experience using Go, Python or Scala is ideal, but any strong back end experience is fine.
  • Familiarity working with complex, distributed systems and cloud-based infrastructure, including stateful services on Kubernetes, NoSQL databases, AWS and/or GCP
  • Ability to turn ambiguity into clarity, and being comfortable treading new ground


About Rokt’stars:

As a mission-driven, hyper-growth community of curious explorers, our ambition is to unlock the full potential in ecommerce and beyond. Our bias for action means we are not afraid to quickly venture into uncharted territories, take risks or challenge the status quo; in doing so we either win or learn. We work together as one aligned team never letting egos get in the way of brilliant ideas. We value diversity, transparency and smart humble people who enjoy building a disruptive business together. We pride ourselves on being a force for good as we make the world better. 

About The Benefits:

We leverage best-in-class technology and market-leading innovation in AI and ML, with all of that being underlined by building and maintaining a fantastic and inclusive culture where people can be their authentic selves, and offering a great list of perks and benefits to go with it:

  • Accelerate your career. We offer roadmaps to leadership and an annual $5000 training allowance
  • Become a shareholder. Every Rokt’star gets equity in the company
  • Enjoy catered lunch every day and healthy snacks in the office. Plus join the gym on us! 
  • Extra leave (bonus annual leave, sabbatical leave etc.) 
  • Work with the greatest talent in town
  • See the world! We have offices in New York, Seattle, Sydney, Tokyo and London

We believe we’re better together. We love spending time together and are in the office most days (teams are in the office 4 days per week). We also get that you need to balance your life and your commitments so you have the flexibility to manage your own hours and can spend up to a week of every quarter working from anywhere.
