Technical Lead - Backend, Ingestion Infrastructure Team


Remote - USA

About the team

This Business Intelligence product group is responsible for making HubSpot smarter by enabling a deeper understanding of its customers. They're not a centralized reporting-only team, they're a team of engineers who partner with our business leaders to understand the nuances of the data and HubSpot systems and provide access to the data they need to manage our business intelligently. They tackle HubSpot’s most complex data challenges, manage our BI data infrastructure, and provide support to each other and to a network of business analysts throughout the company. You will get to work in a best-in-class tech stack that includes Airflow, Snowflake, dbt, and Looker. 

This role sits within our Data Platform Pillar, on our Ingestion Infrastructure Team. With over 800+ sources they get data from, they need to take all of that data and put it into a data warehouse to allow for reporting. Ultimately, they’re trying to reduce the time to get data into our data warehouse (from initial request all the way through code execution). They’re also building core infrastructure for other teams to build on top of, in order to provide a better and cohesive experience for stakeholders.  

We’re looking for individuals that:

  • Can contribute to the codebase! Most of our backend codebase is in Java, but we also have elements written in Python.
  • Manage a small team of engineers while still making individual contributions. 
  • Foster an environment that encourages autonomy and psychological safety.
  • Understand the value of building a diverse team, and are champions and upstanders for Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging initiatives.
  • Enjoy mentoring and coaching other team members in a psychologically safe way, while also being open to learning from them as well.
  • Forge strong partnerships with Product Managers, Technical Leads, and teammates in translating business requirements into technical vision
  • Bring industry best practices to help us improve our existing data infrastructure, and continue to scale it with the growth of the business
  • Are committed to data quality, security, and privacy
