Are you ready to build a foundation of data-driven decision-making for a growing company and its clients? Grant Street Group is looking for a talented data engineer to join our team.
We are a privately held software company that supports a variety of clients in government and finance. Our web applications support tax collection, electronic payments, bond auctions and more.
If the following describes you, we want to hear from you!
You get things done: You will help our clients and internal users by adding new data sources to our data warehouse. You excel at reverse-engineering new data sources, and ingesting the data into our data warehouse, while still following ETL best practices.
You’re quick to jump in, and you love to troubleshoot: You’ll investigate when something goes wrong with our data replicators. You won’t stop until you’ve found the root cause and fixed it. You don’t mind occasional support calls at night or on weekends (typically fewer than 3 calls a week shared between two engineers) if it keeps our clients up and running.
You’re lazy, but in a good way: Your answer to support calls is to bulletproof your code. Your answer to repetitive tasks is to automate them. You write good code, but only if you can’t use someone else’s good code to get the job done.
You love working in a team: You will join a small team that manages the entire data lifecycle. You’ll collaborate with our clients and product teams to provide fresh, accurate data to our users.
You may be the perfect fit if you have these skills and knowledge:
- ETL expertise
- Experience with data warehouse administration
- Strong SQL skills
- Basic Linux knowledge
- Basic knowledge of a scripting language (Python, Perl…)
If you have any of the following, that would be a plus:
- Data analysis or business intelligence expertise
- Experience with Apache NiFi
- Programming experience in Go
- Experience with Exasol or Microstrategy
This position is open to telecommuters. There is minimal travel: 2-4 weeks per year for on-site meetings in Pittsburgh. If you live (or want to) in Pittsburgh, you can work in our beautiful headquarters atop the Heinz building.

Using the best collaboration tools available, we offer a technology-rich work environment that makes it possible for us to support on-site and telecommuting positions tailored to the needs of our employees.
