Full time Data Engineering - Data Entry Level

Job Description

Would you like to spend your limited time on this Earth paying off shitcoin¹ technical debt? If so, join some other company. We made a decision early on to get really good at one thing: Bitcoin.

LibertyX and LibertyPay are rapidly expanding leaders in Bitcoin retail and "Rebittance" (Bitcoin-based remittances), respectively.

LibertyX launched America's first Bitcoin ATM in 2014. Now we're putting "Bitcoin on every block" with ATMs, cashiers, and kiosks. LibertyX helps retail business owners find a way to make additional income and helps Bitcoin adoption at the same time.

LibertyPay makes remittances to Latin America faster and cheaper. We help families save money on transfer fees so more goes to their brothers, sisters, mothers, and fathers.

Nic Carter, a well-respected industry thought leader, VC, and founder, has described these services as "insanely underrated."

Unique experience:

  • Work closely with founding team -- Learn from people who built a startup from 0 to acquisition*
  • Meaningful work -- Help Bitcoin adoption and improve remittances
  • 100% remote -- No office
  • Small team -- Each individual person makes a big difference
  • Big markets -- Tons of room for future growth

* NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR) transaction is expected to close later this year. It is subject to customary closing conditions, including obtaining certain regulatory licensing consents and approvals.


What you'll be doing:
You will use modern open-source tools (Python, Pandas, SQL, NumPy, SciPy, etc.) to produce accounting, sales, compliance, business operations, and customer experience reports. This information will teach us how to better serve our customers and grow the business, which ultimately helps Bitcoin adoption. In the process you will use ETL pipelines that extract data from various external sources, transform it into a useful format, and load it into our databases.

We built both companies (LibertyX and LibertyPay) with a single team of 3 engineers. You will work closely with the same people who built both companies from scratch, which is an extremely valuable experience if you want to start your own company someday.

About you:
You don't mind teaching yourself whatever is necessary to reach your goal. You don't need to be a software engineer, but you are comfortable using Python, Pandas, and SQL. You're comfortable with basic Data Analysis concepts like data frames, time series, indexing, selecting, missing data, joins, reshaping, visualization, etc.

Tech Setup:
We are strongly biased in favor of open source software and keeping things simple. You will use the latest standard open source technologies:

  • JupyterLab (newer replacement of Jupyter Notebook)
  • Python
  • Pandas
  • NumPy
  • SciPy
  • PostgreSQL
  • MySQL
  • Git
  • GitLab
