Senior Data Engineer
What Is 5x?
5x provides companies everything they need to convert data to $$. Our goal is to commoditize data engineering and to be able to do it far faster, cheaper and better than hiring your own team inhouse or using an external consulting company
5x provides companies with 2 things:
1. Best in class data infrastructure around the modern data stack. Instead of spending 6 months and signing multiple enterprise contracts to get started. 5x provides the end to end infrastructure as a service. This means companies can get started on Day 1.
2. Highly qualified vetted data engineers – This is where you come in. We embed our engineers into our target companies. Given we know what the data stack looks like beforehand we have high quality training programs and direct slack support from the 5x Internal team so you are always supported.
5x is led by Tarush Aggarwal (LinkedIn), who was the first data engineer at Salesforce.com and previously led data for Wework supporting 15,000 employees using data self-service.
