Big Data Engineer
We’re looking for a Big Data Engineer to build core data architecture components from scratch as part of our enterprise data architecture enhancements.
You will be analysing and optimising the existing data architecture, identifying, analysing and integrating various data source systems being used across the business.
You will ensure that our data architecture is working as well as undertaking regular maintenance.
Who we are:
Ever booked hotel accommodation on, Expedia or TripAdvisor? Chances are, you’ve used SiteMinder. Our goal is to liberate hoteliers with technology that makes a world of difference, and we do that by helping them find and acquire guests online.
We are the world’s leading guest acquisition platform for hotels, supporting 35,000 hotels in 160 countries to generate more than 87 million reservations on our platform each year.
We’re not like other tech companies
It’s rare that a global tech company is headquartered in Australia, not to mention one that’s backed by the same Silicon Valley investor as Facebook, Netflix and Expedia. How’s that for good company?
We pioneered a SaaS model for hotels in 2006, and 13 years on, competition is tough but we work hard to call ourselves the world’s leading guest acquisition platform for hotels. So far, we have 35,000 hotel customers in 160 countries, and we’re on a mission to make a world of difference to 60,000 hotels by 2022!

As our Big Data Engineer, your primary responsibilities will include:

  • Build core data architecture components from scratch as part of enterprise data architecture enhancements
  • Analyse and optimise the existing Data architecture using best practices
  • Identify, analyse and integrate various data source systems being used across the organisation
  • Ensure existing data architecture works optimally and undertake regular maintenance tasks

  • Experience of Tableau server management and optimisation on Cloud server would be a great advantage
  • Good understanding of data architecture related services on GCP and Azure would be a great advantage
  • You should have good data analysis skills using SQL or Python
  • As you are working in our offshore office you will be able to work under minimal supervision and leverage your knowledge, experience, and judgment to accomplish well-defined goals
  • As you will have regular communication with our Sydney HQ team you will have competent verbal and written communication skills to discuss projects with remotely located managers and work well in in-person and remote team situations
