At Treasure Data we are helping enterprises solve complex data problems and empowering them with superior actionable insights that drive effective customer experiences. Founded in 2011 with a deep heritage in data management, the award-winning Treasure Data CDP unifies customer data across silos at scale. Over the last years, we have experienced huge growth in many areas of Treasure Data which prompted a greater focus on consistent improvement in our development and operational practices, and we are looking for incredible people to join and contribute to maturing our approaches to engineering excellence. 

We are looking for an experienced Software Engineer who is excited to work within our Core Service group. This group is made up of teams that span a wide area, including streaming data ingestion, columnar data storage and optimization, OSS query engines like Trino (Presto) and Hive, and the multi-tenant fair scheduling that underpins it all. This combination of systems encompasses the background processing and execution of all customer actions within the Treasure Data platform.

As an Engineer in our Core Service group, you will join a culturally diverse team with expertise in designing, building and operating large distributed systems. Within the team, you will focus on making improvements to the job scheduler and related pipeline. We also encourage partnering with cross-functional teams of engineers and product managers to drive and impact our product development and roadmap directions. As we iterate through the development process, you would work directly with our incredible customer success team, solution engineers and architects to provide recommendations and gather feedback to move our technology forward.

Our values

Humility - Greatness is achieved by overcoming obstacles. Mistakes are opportunities to improve. Knowing this, we welcome feedback from customers and colleagues while constantly striving to learn and grow.

Openness - We embrace transparency wherever practical and reasonable. All communication must be transparent by default. We work to maximize information flow within the company and praise all those who do the same.

Honesty - It’s easy to be honest about things you feel good about—much harder with the things you don’t. We encourage directness and sincerity in all scenarios. Admitting failure is the first step toward learning and growth. Honesty builds trust and nurtures efficient teamwork.

Reliability - Our customers rely on our service and build their companies upon it. Likewise, we rely upon each other to build our own business. We know this, and take responsibility to be reliable for our customers and each other.
