The Role

CAA is seeking a developer with excellent software architecture and data engineering skills to join our product development team. The product development team designs and builds software experiences for mobile and web that are uniquely valuable for CAA's diverse, global, and high- energy entertainment industry culture of agents, executives, artists, and business partners.


You and your teammates have the opportunity to work collaboratively with other developers to design and deliver the data infrastructure (warehouse, schema, pipelines, OLTP, ETL) that supports CAA's portfolio of applications and analytics tools, and we need your help building and maintaining supporting services for that infrastructure.

You will be able to use your software development skills in an agile environment to develop new data pipelines and APIs, and your experience with continuous delivery will support the end-to-end lifecycle: design, deployment, test, operations, monitoring and support. You will have the chance to directly interact with the people who are using your applications.

Languages and Frameworks. You should be proficient in Python with at least a year of experience delivering production Python data projects to production. We welcome candidates with experience in other languages such as Ruby, PHP, or Javascript. Experience with Javascript is a plus. It would be great for you to have experience in the Azure data stack (Azure Data Factory, Azure Data Lake, Tabular Model / DAX, Azure Analysis Services) but If you have strong experience with complementary open source data technologies such as Hadoop, Amazon Glue, Spark, Airflow and so on we would love to talk to you.

Databases. We'd like to see real SQL and NoSQL production experience. We're particularly interested in your expertise with SQL Server, Azure SQL, Azure Synapse, CosmosDB, MongoDB and Elastic. Having experience talking to customers and modeling data would be a plus. If you bring specific skills in Kafka , Cassandra, or any other cloud based warehouse let's talk.

Tools. You should have experience with maintaining projects using a distributed version control system such as Git and Github. Experience in automated deployment of pipelines and schema into production environments would be great.

Techniques. You should be experienced with agile methods and the concepts behind continuous delivery. We expect you are passionate about developing data structures, pipelines, and APIs -- so we want to see your experience with security, testing, performance, JSON, and REST. We are eager to hear about your experience and opinions around data quality, test strategy, and test automation.

Education. We prefer you have a BS in Computer Science, or equivalent experience, which means three plus years of delivering production data pipelines.

Focus. We expect you to have a passion for and experience shipping and maintaining production software products to business users. You must have strong verbal, written and visual presentation skills. We are most interested in candidates who want to work in an environment where attention to detail, solving problems, simplicity, quality, and moving quickly are highly prized.


You can work 100% remote with occasional travel to company meetings and events. We have a service-oriented collaborative environment where teamwork and care and helping others to succeed are highly valued.

Compensation: The annual base salary for this position is in the range of $103,000 - $134,600. T his position also is eligible for benefits and discretionary bonus.
