Density Inc.: Data Engineer

Posted about 2 years ago

Headquarters: San Francisco, CA


To our future Data Engineer

At Density, we build one of the most advanced people sensing systems in the world. The product and infrastructure is nuanced and one-of-a-kind. Building this product for scale has been an exercise in patience, creativity, remarkable engineering, laser physics, global logistics, and grit. The team is thoughtful, driven, and world-class.

Why this is an important role

Last week our deployed DPUs detected a million humans walking through doors. A number that increases every week.

As engineers, we think it's pretty cool to be capturing events at this volume. Especially when it's done anonymously, accurately, and in real-time. Our customers, however, are interested in what happens after these events enter our system.

Density is deployed globally, servicing a variety of use cases, by some of the largest companies in the world. Here are just a few examples. A leading cloud storage company is using Density to strengthen their physical security by detecting unauthorized access. A marquee hotel brand is using Density to measure lounge occupancy and dynamically deliver world-class service. An international telecom is using Density to better design and optimize their real estate portfolio.

These use cases may seem disparate, but a common thread holds them together. They all share the need for real-time and ongoing data analysis. And that's where you come in.

Our systems must efficiently and reliably:

- Update current counts and analytics whenever a relevant event occurs, for every impacted space,
- Publish the information to low-latency receivers via webhooks and websockets,
- Alert and notify as appropriate through SMS, email, and push notifications, and
- Aggregate events into analytics used for dashboards, forecasts, and fleet management.

Turning millions of events into actionable insight is a nuanced dance. Are you up for the job?

This role reports to our Director of Engineering.
