About Paxos

Paxos is on a mission to enable the movement of any asset, any time, in a trustworthy way. Todayโ€™s financial infrastructure is archaic, expensive, inefficient and risky - supporting a system that leaves out more people than it lets in. So weโ€™re rebuilding it.

As a regulated blockchain infrastructure company, we use technology to tokenize, custody, trade, and settle assets for enterprise clients like PayPal, Bank of America, and Interactive Brokers. Paxos is a top-funded blockchain company, with more than $500 million in total funding from leading investors like OakHC/FT, Founders Fund, PayPal Ventures, and Declaration Partners. Together, we empower todayโ€™s financial leaders to build a more open, trusted economy.

As a Data Engineer, you'll get to:
  • Improve Paxosโ€™s products and decision-making by crafting, growing and optimizing our data and data architecture.
  • Partner with engineering, the rest of the data org and cross-functional partners to understand data needs.
  • Design, build and maintain efficient and reliable data pipelines to move data across a number of environments and platforms
  • Ensure data access and segregation aligns to relevant data policies
  • Work with data and cross-functional partners to automate manual ingestion processes and optimize data delivery

  • Design and implement data unit tests on pipelines, ensuring accurate data reaches end users at all times
  • Build data expertise and own data quality for your areas
  • Become an advocate for data and data tooling within Paxos - make recommendations for new datasets, tools, analyses to further the data team and Paxosโ€™s missions.
  • Immerse yourself in blockchain technology, cryptocurrency for enterprises and investors, our regulation-first approach, and more!

Your experience should include:
  • 3+ years of SQL experience
