Overview

About Us
At Brooklyn Data Company, we’re crafting a place where data people love to work. We are thought leaders working towards meaningful, sustainable growth as individuals, as an organization, and as analytics partners with our clients.
Our growing team is fully remote and distributed, which means we can collaborate from wherever works best for each team member. With staff and clients from Los Angeles to Lagos, South America to Central Europe, we currently operate across 9 time zones (Central European Time to US Pacific Standard Time).
What we’re looking for
Whether you’ve had a role like data warehouse engineer, ETL developer, data analyst, or analytics consultant, we’re seeking folks with mid- to senior-level experience thinking critically about how data can be transformed to best support and inform organizational needs and culture.

Because our clients are mostly US-based, we look for the ability to communicate with professional proficiency in English, verbally and in writing.

We’d love to hear from you if…

What it’s like working at Brooklyn Data

We’re at an important time in our company’s history: the beginning. That means we don’t have things perfect yet, but we’re enthusiastically crafting a culture that’s inclusive, career-minded, and action-oriented from the start. We welcome feedback and input on everything from hiring to onboarding to project management practices. We hold each other to practicing our company values, to finding ways to strengthen the areas we each need to grow in, and to finding ways to take care of each other throughout.
You can expect to hone your technical skills and business acumen with opportunities on a variety of client engagements, by making open-source contributions to the data community, and by contributing to our pro-bono efforts. You’ll learn to sharpen your focus on useful, small iterations of work and to speak up when you need help planning and prioritizing. You’ll be able to share the things you’re really good at, learn from each of your coworkers, and make space for all the great things you love doing outside of work, too.
What to expect from the screening process
  1.  Kick-start questions – Your answers to the application questions will help us understand how your experience and interests map to what we need to grow the team. Note: we don’t review resumes or CVs, so no need to update or upload yours.
  2.  Intro chat – You’ll speak to a manager about your background and interests and get a chance to learn more about Brooklyn Data.
  3.  Work on problems that reflect the job – You’ll submit your responses to a set of exercises designed to reflect the technical and communication skills you’ll need on the job. We hope it both gives us a sense of your skills and you a sense of day-to-day work at Brooklyn Data. We’ll pay you a stipend for your time so that the time (about 4 hours worth) doesn’t create an unfair barrier for any applicants.
  4.  Chat with your potential future co-workers over Zoom – You’ll chat for about an hour with a few of the people you’ll be working with. We’ll share our key questions in advance, because we want to level the introvert / extrovert playing ground, to have you as much at ease as possible, and to make the best possible use of our time together. You’ll also have some time to ask questions of the team.
  5.  References – We’ll ask to speak to two or three people who can speak to your work.
  6.  Our decision – If you’re selected, we’ll make an offer and open the avenues for communication with our team members to support you in making your decision. If you’re not selected in the current round, we promise to give you some context as to why not, if you’d find that useful. Keep in mind that we’re growing, and we expect there to be many future opportunities!
