Backend / Data Engineer Intern

As a data engineer at Locale, you will be responsible for building and handling our data pipelines that handle 500 million pings in production. You will be orchestrating workflows, handling clusters, managing metadata, and transformations.

Being an enterprise-focused company, our systems don’t scale linearly or even exponentially. Every new customer brings the scale of millions of customers that they serve. We need to build robust, scale-ready, and fault-tolerant services from day one. Our clients rely on it.
