Every day, thousands of developers and marketers create, iterate, and scale websites on the open web to reach billions of people globally. Pantheon’s SaaS model puts large and small web and digital teams in control of increasing the performance of their teams, websites, and marketing programs. Pantheon cloud native software includes governance, security and collaboration tools that make it easy to securely manage a single website or thousands of websites across multiple teams in one platform.

The Role

Pantheon is looking for a Data Engineer to join our team, either remote or onsite at our SF headquarters. (on U.S. hours.) Proudly based out of San Francisco, Pantheon is a platform where marketers and developers build, host, and manage their high-value Drupal and WordPress websites.

The data engineer will work closely with Data Ops, Analytic Engineers, Analysts, and Data Scientists to help identify, source, ingest, and cleanse data to be made available for further refinement.  

Pantheon’s core company values are Trust, Teamwork, Passion, and Customers First. Within Pantheon engineering, we value collaboration, character, autonomy, and a no-blame culture.
