Software Engineer II - Database

Bengaluru, Karnataka, India, APAC
Software Development

About the Role

We’re looking for a Software Engineer for our HANA and SQL Server database connector team to drive improved performance, reliability, and analytical power for our platform to delight our customers in how they use their data.

This team is tasked with evolving a high performance extract-load-transform data integration system that enables our connector teams to ship the Fivetran ELT product using powerful abstractions. The role will challenge you to solve problems in the domains of performance engineering, data security, and cluster orchestration. You don’t need to be a subject matter expert before you join us (you will become one within this role!), but you will need to have experience working carefully with a high impact software team — especially in environments where the best option may not be obvious, your decisions have cascading implications, and where you sometimes need to measure three times before you cut once.

A successful candidate will be humble enough to collect diverse input and build consensus, will be experienced and confident enough to be decisive when it’s needed, and will be practical enough to build and iterate on the system while it’s in production. We are also looking for a high level of expertise and productivity with modern software development environments (we use Java).

We're looking for people who can understand the key values that make our product great and implement those values in the many small decisions you make every day as one of our most senior engineers. This is a full-time position based out of our Bangalore office.

Technologies You’ll Use

  •  C, Java, HANA, SQL Server, SQL, Kubernetes
What You’ll Do

  • Be a horizontally-scaling engineer (we grow together as a team)
  • Design and implement features and performance improvements in the Fivetran core to create highly scalable distributed data pipelines on the cloud
  • Care and feel ownership of our product platform, and leverage your skills towards improving it
  • Advocate for core values, business impact, better engineering, and simple and direct solutions
  • Lead engineering-wide initiatives for a number of key technologies
  • Collaborate across engineering on cross-functional projects creating innovative solutions
  • Work across the project lifecycle: requirements, design, prototype, implementation, review, release, monitoring
  • Review and approve technical design documents and pull requests
  • Improve and enhance engineering systems documentation and development processes
  • Coach and mentor other software engineers
  • Contribute to hiring by participating in the interview process
Skills We’re Looking For

  • Typically, 3-5 years of software development experience in fast paced environments
  • Demonstrated passion to learn how large-scale software engineering projects work
  • Has developed an ability to write, test, and deploy well-structured and performant code
  • Experience developing data-processing systems, preferably for an external-facing product
  • Strong technical communication skills (written and verbal) in English
  • Proficient level programming in an object oriented / systems language such as Java, Python, C# etc.
  • Experienced with end-to-end systems profiling, performance, and optimization
  • Experienced working in a cloud environment architecture utilizing AWS, GCP, Postgres, Kubernetes, Docker, or similar technologies
Optional Bonus Skills​

  • Has reverse engineering experience of database logs
  • Experience using HANA databases
  • Experience with SQL Server databases
  • Developed any ETL/ELT pipelines
