As the Data Engineering department of Rakuten, we specialize in delivering complete and high-quality data as a service for our internal and external customers. Over the past 10 years, we’ve gained a wealth of experience in building the technologies and processes that allow us to do this — and we continue to evolve.
We’re a very Junior-oriented company and we’re willing to do our best to develop our engineers — especially if the interest is mutual.
A person who feels like a future Engineer. Interested in optimization, automation, finding easy solutions to complex problems. Not afraid to face an unfamiliar problem... and defeat it in the most efficient way. And you believe, that it’s possible to revise any system, scrap any method, abandon any theory if the success of the job requires it. And maybe you have the following skills:
— English Upper-Intermediate.
— A broad horizon of knowledge. You don’t have to be an expert in all areas, but you know “how things work” very well. And you’re always curious to know more.
— Quick wits, responsibility, self-directing.
— Good Communication skills
— Able to analyze a complex problem and decompose it into its components.
— ...and draw it (ERD, UML, BPMN)
— Have some understanding of XML / HTML / CSS / XPath and all other web things
Don’t worry if there’s a lot you don’t know, we’ll teach you :-)
You’ll be part of a team responsible for re-engineering the existing business processes (and sometimes inventing new ones) for our customers across different BUs of Rakuen Advertising. We meet with customers, deeply understand their processes, try them out, redesign it if necessary and find the best ways to automate them without many months of development — and implement those solutions.
And, of course, as a member of the team you will have access to:
— full and comprehensive training
— professional and career development
— freedom of creativity and initiative. As Grace Hopper said, “It’s easier to ask for forgiveness than to get permission”. We infinitely value aspiration and initiative. Most of our technologies, processes, and departments appeared precisely because of those.
— health insurance
— a spacious downtown office (after quarantine)
— ...and other things you need for interesting and creative work
