Kafka Consultant / Engineer (US-Based, Remote)

Seattle, WA
If you’re an engineer / consultant, with deep expertise in the Kafka ecosystem, we’d love to talk with you. We’re supporting one of our partners as they stand up a new Kafka-based data streaming environment and we’re looking for a consultant to own a defined portion of this work, specifically related to Kafka topics and data flows.
 
What you’ll be doing:
  • Provide hands-on engineering and Kafka expertise for a significant data initiative
  • Create and deploy connectors and / or custom code connectors that enable movement of streaming data from Kafka into Snowflake
  • Collaborate with technical team and stakeholders as needed to gather requirements and implement a solid data solution
  • Communicate clearly, professionally, and consistently with your team and your client
  • Be a good person; we’re proud to work with every single Rooster Park engineer and you will be too!
 
What you bring to the table:
  • Bachelor’s degree in computer science / engineering or equivalent 
  • 10+ years experience in software development, with specific experience around data management / streaming
  • 3+ years experience with Kafka as an engineer and/or architect, with the ability to be hands on with command line Kafka 
  • Strong, well-thought opinions on best practices around Kafka and data stream development
  • Experience in developing and designing applications using cloud technologies, preferably AWS
  • Experience with Snowflake is helpful, but not required
  • Strong collaboration and communication skills; you function well autonomously with drive and self-direction, but you’re also comfortable being part of a team and working in partnership with your engineering colleagues
  • You are reliable, responsible, consistent, nice, and passionate about what you do
 
We pay competitively, with excellent healthcare and other benefits. This is a consulting opportunity, based out of Seattle, WA. Unfortunately at this time we are not able to provide sponsorship for employment and request no agency submissions. Thank you!
