Data teams all over the world use Great Expectations to instrument and understand their data and machine learning infrastructure and systems.

About the role

This is an exciting time at Superconductive. We are building a SaaS product that helps teams adopt Great Expectations, a shared, open standard for data quality.

You will be expected to:

  • Work in an agile environment to maintain and improve the quality of the Great Expectations Open Source and Cloud products.

  • Build automated tests and test harnesses following best practices for project management and writing clear, efficient code.

  • Take initiative; proactively gather input from users and other key stakeholders, your observations, and collaboration with colleagues to improve Great Expectations.

  • Automate and improve testing infrastructure. Advocate for and support colleagues’ use of tests and testing infrastructure throughout the organization.

  • Develop and maintain testing environments for contributions and releases.

  • Collaborate with our developer relations team to design tests and their output that supports contribution from the open source community.

  • Produce clear, testable, documentation of features for external users, both in code and for our docs site.

  • Review user stories for clarity and testability, ensuring clear acceptance criteria.

  • Work as part of a small, remote team that is passionate about building great software.

  • Work confidently in python, and/or interact with a variety of data systems and testing tools, improving the codebase to ensure it is clear and easily approachable for external collaborators.

As part of Superconductive, you will also have opportunities to support the community and evangelize Great Expectations through conference talks, workshops, and blog posts, if you’d like.
