\nUmbel is a high-energy, fast-growing startup based in Austin, Texas, helping companies ethically unlock the value hidden in their consumer data. We empower some of the coolest clients to build thriving, sustainable businesses with our leading-edge Digital Genome technology. With the Umbel platform, our clients can understand and build relationships with their customers in a way that has never before been possible.\n\nWe are a team of agile, boundary-pushing problem-solvers who love to invent and improve. As a member of the database team, the Internal API Engineer will be responsible for managing access to our data layer. This entails controlling who has access to specific data, and how often they can access that data (which will likely include rate limiting rules). You will help build and manage an API layer on top of data located in our various data stores (Cassandra, MySQL, ElasticSearch, etc). The users of this API will be other Umbel team members and applications, so you will need to work with various departments to determine what data they need to access, and then configure the API to grant them that access. You'll also work with the DBAs to determine if any API calls are putting excessive load on a particular database. You should be comfortable digging into various database platforms as well as working on the software supporting the API.\n\nWhat You Must Have:\n\nCultural fit and eternal optimism. We are an ambitious startup setting out to lead a revolution. We fearlessly take big chances and know that optimism and perseverance are the keys to wild success — and we are tested on that daily. If this excites you, read on. If it makes you feel queasy, skip to the next company.\n\nCuriosity backed by execution. This is a tech startup, and you should be prepared to geek out on the intricacies of big data or the nuances of co-ownership of data rights. There’s a lot to learn and define, and you will naturally need to be obsessed with staying ahead of the curve. But it doesn’t stop there. You must leverage that learning and turn it into creating amazing experiences both inside and outside of Umbel.\n\nMotivation and determination. Exciting — and daunting — challenges face us every day at Umbel. We excel in the pursuit of challenging goals because we are intrinsically motivated to change the world and are determined to overcome any setbacks or obstacles on our way there. Umbel is looking for fighters, who go to bed and wake up each day with a fire in the belly.\n\nWhat You Will Get Out Of It:\n\n\n* A team of talented, hard-working colleagues that will become lifelong friends\n\n* The opportunity to invent new solutions, grow your career and enhance your skill set\n\n* 100% employer-paid health insurance premiums (medical, dental & vision)\n\n* Unlimited paid vacation policy\n\n* Competitive compensation including cash and stock options\n\n* Unlimited snacks and coffee\n\n* Monthly fitness activity reimbursement and provided health tracking technology\n\n* Community involvement through Meals on Wheels and more\n\n* The ability to learn and grow from technology innovators and disruptors\n\n* An incredible office location in downtown Austin with on-site parking included\n\n\n
