At Dataiku, we're not just adapting to the AI revolution, we're leading it. Since our beginning in Paris in 2013, we've been pioneering the future of AI with a platform that makes data actionable and accessible. With over 1,000 teammates across 25 countries and backed by a renowned set of investors, we're the architects of Everyday AI, enabling data experts and domain experts to work together to build AI into their daily operations, from advanced analytics to Generative AI.

Dataiku is looking for an experienced Architect to join its Field Engineering Team as a Sr Field Engineer. This position will support the deployment of Dataiku’s Everyday AI Platform to an ever growing customer base in the emerging Latin America market.

As a Sr Field Engineer, you will work with customers on their enterprise-wide deployments of Dataiku.

This role requires strong technical abilities, adaptability, inventiveness, business acumen, and strong communication skills. Sometimes you will work with clients on traditional big data technologies such as SQL data warehouses and on-premise Hadoop data lakes, while at other times you will be helping them to discover and implement the most cutting-edge tools; cutting-edge infrastructure deployment stacks, cloud-based elastic compute engines like Spark or Kubernetes, and deep learning on GPUs.
