Data Engineer – Marketplace


Friends, I present to you an opportunity to join Flippa. A growing 2-sided marketplace and, thanks to a significant Series A cap raise, is seriously accelerating growth and scaling here and abroad. This is a bloody big deal.  
I don’t want to overdo it, but this is a unique opportunity to join a damn impressive team; super smart, egoless humans who have a history of successful growth stories not only here but in other start-ups, as well. Flippa is in the best position it has ever been in and I don’t think it’s too much of a stretch to say now is a REALLY good time to join. 

Tell me more about Flippa…
Flippa is the #1 marketplace to buy and sell online businesses. True to their mission to give every business owner a pathway to exit. A peer-to-peer marketplace brings together entrepreneurs, owners, investors and operators to trade sites, stores, apps and online businesses. But there is a lot of work to be done and opportunity here.

Flippa represents the new real estate – it’s digital real estate – and this is your opportunity to be a part of a major shift in society, one where digital business ownership is the new currency and a new asset class. 

What about the culture? 
We’ve already touched on this a little bit and we’ve used such words as “awesome” and “smart.” Here you have a business that is really starting to grow up. This is a good thing. A lot of more positive change is afoot. But the DNA of the business is – knowing the customer, REALLY knowing the customer and solving customer problems. Sounds simple enough but that breeds collaboration and this is a business where people are proactive, they care about and believe in what Flippa is doing. This is definitely a good environment to learn but also be supported with the level of scope and autonomy that this role brings.

What is this role all about?
Having recently raised its Series A this rapidly scaling global marketplace is a leader in the alternative assets and Web3 world. You’ll be working with an exciting product roadmap that will put you at the cutting edge of technology across marketplaces, verification, web3, and identity. A great culture awaits with a group of diverse people from across the US, UK, EU and Australia all working together to build the leading alternative asset marketplace globally.

The Data Engineer will report to the Head of Product and partner closely with Product Managers, Software Engineers and Business Units to develop a data platform for Flippa. The Product and Technology teams in Flippa are responsible for the Flippa Marketplace and all the buyer and seller interactions involved in selling a business.

  • Develop and maintain database views, procedures and data models.
  • Actively participate in developing a positive and supportive team culture both within both the Product team as well as the Technology team.

So who are we looking for?

  • Knowledge of cloud ETL technologies such as AWS Glue and database replication technologies.
  • Extensive technical proficiency in SQL including the creation of views, procedures and database optimisation.
  • Strong technical proficiency with Python including parsing jsons and calling APIs
