Remote Job Description

About Us

At Fishtown Analytics, our mission is to empower analysts to create and disseminate organizational knowledge. The product we create, dbt (data build tool,, is used by thousands of companies every week, and that number is growing fast. We're looking for a software engineer to build cloud applications that make using dbt even more delightful and powerful.

Who we are

At Fishtown Analytics, we have developed strong opinions on how companies should practice analytics.

Specifically, we believe that:

- Code, not graphical user interfaces, is the best abstraction to express complex analytic logic
- Data analysts should adopt similar practices and tools to software developers
- Critical analytics infrastructure should be controlled by its users as open source software
- Analytic code itself — not just analytics tools — will increasingly be open source

It turns out that a lot of other people believe this too! Over the course of the past several years we've built a community of 6,000+ people and 1,300 companies who are using our ideas, products, and workflows to conduct analytics, including Lyft, Monzo, GitLab, Snowflake, the ACLU, Amazon, JetBlue, and RentTheRunway. Our product, dbt (, has come to be synonymous with the practice of analytics engineering, defining an entire industry.
