About the position:

At Cabify we are a data-driven company. Our team builds and develops a huge data warehouse where the Data Analytics team can find not only raw data, but also complex etls processes to provide the insights they need.

But where can I see all that data? We have a Tableau server instance that contains thousands of workbooks and is consulted by hundreds of users every day. We manage that instance so we work hard to make sure everything works properly. We also created, and keep on creating, tooling around Tableau and our data warehouse, in order to keep on improving the way our users interact with data.

At Analytics Engineering we manage our own cloud infrastructure (AWS). Our in-house etls platform has more than 300 processes (Python, Airflow, Redshift, S3, Spectrum, Glue, RDS) that we visualize with our Tableau server cluster (Tableau Server Linux, Ec2, Python).
