Anchorage Digital is an industry leader, a dynamic startup and growing business, and a diverse and welcoming team where individual professional growth is priority. Founded in 2017, Anchorage is a regulated platform that offers institutions simple and secure participation in digital assets, all integrated with industry-leading custody. We’re the infrastructure company behind your favorite bank or fintech company and the platform for institutional participation in digital assets. Additionally, Anchorage Digital received the first federal banking charter for a digital bank in January 2021, setting the standard for crypto regulation in the United States. Anchorage has raised a total of $137M in funding from leading investors including GIC, Singapore’s sovereign wealth fund, Andreessen Horowitz, VISA, and Blockchain Capital.

Timely access to high quality data is essential to making informed decisions at a financial institution like Anchorage. In addition to monthly, quarterly and SOC compliance reporting, critical decision making for products such as Trading and Lending requires access to reliable and flexible data models. The Data Engineer position is critical to enabling and supporting access to data.

  • Build secure data pipelines to ETL operational data into data warehouses and enable teams to leverage the data.
  • Create infrastructure and tooling to deliver flexible data sets that the business depends upon.
  • Lead the architecture and implementation of batch and real-time data pipelines.
  • Build & manage infrastructure and access to data.
  • Collaborate with engineers and security developers to consider data pipelines during the design of operational systems.
  • Deliver business-critical projects.

You may be a fit for this role if:

  • You have experience processing a variety of data sources: SQL, PubSub, API-based, Event-sourced state, among others
  • Expertise in translating business use cases into data models to support analysis.
  • A passion for building flexible data sets that enable current and future use cases.
  • Knowledge of cloud-based infrastructure and data services (GCP, AWS, Azure, et al) and data tooling.
  • A proven track record of delivering results that impact the business
  • The ability to move quickly and pivot as business needs and conditions change.

Although not a requirement, bonus points if:

  • When you learned that starfish can regrow severed limbs, you thought can my star schema be as resilient?
