Head of Data Engineering

About ONE

ONE is on a mission to help people save and grow their money, in order to live better.
Today, people are getting by instead of getting ahead. Most use 5-7 apps to manage their financial lives, leaving them feeling disconnected from their money – and stressed. Moreover, 2 out of 3 people have no emergency savings and pay over $250 in overdraft fees each year.

We’re building ONE for people to manage their finances in one place, reduce financial stress, and focus on the things that matter most.

We're seeking folks who are hungry, humble, and honest and ready to build a financial product that directly addresses the financial needs of those who need it most.

The role

As Head of Data Engineering at ONE, your mandate is to grow a team of data engineers and partner with stakeholders to build out the data foundations for ONE.  You'll be responsible for strategic and operational leadership within Data and across the Engineering Leadership team. Success in this role looks like leading the team to provide unique data pipeline solutions for structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data sources by bringing tactics that enable flow of data across the company in a highly complex and regulated environment.

This role is responsible for:

  • Hiring, leading, and mentoring a world-class data organization

  • Partnering with the business, particularly in Product, to co-author and co-drive strategies on our shared roadmap

  • Overseeing the movement of large amounts of data into our data lake

  • Establishing a customer-centric approach and synthesizing customer needs

  • Owning end-to-end pipelines and destinations for the transfer and storage of all of ONE's data

  • 3rd-party resource management of critical data integration vendors 

You bring

  • 7+ years of experience in data engineering. Strong domain experience in fintech is preferred.

  • Proven success building and scaling large data teams

  • Experience leading teams developing production-grade data pipelines (using Spark, Flink, dbt, etc.) on web-scale datasets. Experience managing real-time data pipelines with low latency SLAs is a plus.

  • Strong familiarity with SQL and data modeling concepts, in either a relational or data warehousing context.

  • Experience designing a large data lake and lake house experience, managing data flows that integrate information from various sources into a common pool implementing data pipelines based on the ETL model.

  • Experience with common data languages (e.g. Python, Scala) and data warehouses (e.g. Redshift, BigQuery, Snowflake, Databricks).  Databricks expertise is a plus.

  • The Triple H Factor: Hungry, Humble, Honest 

  • Act like an owner: decisive, collaborative, and ruthlessly prioritize

  • Ability to navigate and lead teams through ambiguity in a startup environment.
