Who We Are At ZenBusiness

We're a trusted partner for small business owners that want a solution to the challenges of starting, running, and growing a business. We use technology and automation to provide fast and low-cost services, expert support, and a personalized dashboard that puts everything small business owners need at their fingertips. We are an Austin-based start-up that is excited about helping other entrepreneurs and business owners realize their dream of creating and growing a successful business. In doing so, we hope to radically shift the business landscape by empowering more people to be their own boss and become financially independent.

Being part of ZenBusiness means being part of a community of problem-solvers, doers and strategic thinkers. We offer our employees flexible work schedules, paid time off, health, vision and dental benefits, disability insurance, fun monthly activities, and a fully stocked kitchen.

What This Role Is

ZenBusiness is seeking a data engineering professional to partner with our data scientists by owning and developing ELT architecture. You will own the data ingestion pipeline, data warehouse architecture, and management of data assets. This role will be remote for the foreseeable future and location is negotiable.


  • Own and develop our data pipeline including SAAS tools and in-house orchestration applications. This includes sourcing data from internal and external systems in a production quality, monitorable, fault tolerant system.
  • Own and develop tools that push data products from the warehouse out to other internal and external systems.
  • Own and develop our data warehouse infrastructure. Design data retention, cost management, failover, and automation strategy.
  • Own operational performance of the data warehouse.
  • Work with app developers and data scientists to ensure our data is ready for analysis (sometimes you will jump into the backend Python app code to do this)
  • Work with the technology team to make tools selections.


  1. Advanced working SQL knowledge (Postgres a plus) including schema design
  2. Advanced working Python experience particularly with orchestration of data pipelines, CI/CD, monitoring, and productionizing data pipelines
  3. DB operational experience - managing query performance, analyzing warehouse builds, database maintenance
  4. Experience using cloud infrastructure in data pipelines

Nice to Have

  1. Experience with https://stitchdata.com and https://www.singer.io/. Experience developing taps and orchestrating them in a production environment.
  2. Knowledge of dbt (https://www.getdbt.com/) and experience using it to manage warehouse builds is a major plus. We are super interested in the dbt model and need someone who can help us move this forward.
  3. Big Query or similar columnar database experience - drive decision making towards a 'bigger' and more scalable data architecture
  4. Google Cloud experience
