Build the future of data. Join the Snowflake team.

The mission of the Snowflake Streaming team is to empower customers to ingest, transform, and serve their data using real-time and near real-time pipelines within Snowflake. Guided by Snowflake's "no knobs" philosophy, we develop infrastructure that manages orchestration, performance, self-healing, security, and privacy so that customers can focus on their business logic. Leveraging our team's extensive background in building streaming systems, we create infrastructure that is simple to operate and adaptable to diverse business requirements. With the successful launch of products such as Snowpipe Streaming, Dynamic Tables, and Streams, our user base is rapidly expanding. We are growing our team to meet this increasing demand.

We are looking for exceptional technical leaders to drive enhancements in our existing products and spearhead the development of new ones. Our team tackles a wide spectrum of technical issues, encompassing distributed systems, ingestion of unstructured and semi-structured data, distributed queuing, query execution, graph scheduling, and relational optimization. By joining us, you'll have the opportunity to shape strategies, establish technical directions, and design solutions. Your role will be crucial in delivering innovative products that harness the full potential of real-time data for our enterprise customers.

Note: We are not looking for pure data scientists or data engineers.

RESPONSIBILITIES:

  • Help define and own the roadmap, working collaboratively and proactively with senior architects, PMs and team leadership. The initiatives include platforms and tools that enable customers to build streaming pipelines on Snowflake natively.
  • Collaboratively build and execute a vision for streaming systems in ways that best achieve the team’s business objectives.
  • Ensure operational excellence of the services and meet the commitments to our customers regarding reliability, availability, and performance.
  • Investigate performance and scalability bottlenecks and develop systems that are highly available and fault-tolerant.
  • Collaborate across other Snowflake core infrastructure teams to continuously improve our development velocity and capabilities at Snowflake.
  • Mentor team members to deliver a high standard of technical excellence.

IDEAL REQUIREMENTS & QUALIFICATIONS:

  • 8+ years of industry experience designing, building, and supporting cloud infrastructure, distributed systems, or database infrastructure.
  • Strong track record of working with data processing systems and/or platforms. 
  • Deep understanding of computer science fundamentals.
  • Experience leading multiple engineers in delivering large, high impact projects.
  • A growth mindset and excitement about breaking the status quo by seeking innovative solutions.
  • Experience with SQL and/or other database technologies including internal implementations is a plus.
  • A BS/MS/PhD in Computer Science or related majors, or equivalent experience.
  • Ability to work in a team environment, collaborate well, and mentor junior engineers.
  • Ability to work in our downtown Bellevue office at least two days a week.

The following represents the expected range of compensation for this role:

  • The estimated base salary range for this role is $214,000 - $327,700.
  • Additionally, this role is eligible to participate in Snowflake’s bonus and equity plan.

The successful candidate’s starting salary will be determined based on permissible, non-discriminatory factors such as skills, experience, and geographic location. This role is also eligible for a competitive benefits package that includes: medical, dental, vision, life, and disability insurance; 401(k) retirement plan; flexible spending & health savings account; at least 12 paid holidays; paid time off; parental leave; employee assistance program; and other company benefits.

Snowflake is growing fast, and we’re scaling our team to help enable and accelerate our growth. We are looking for people who share our values, challenge ordinary thinking, and push the pace of innovation while building a future for themselves and Snowflake.
