About Prophecy

Data was the new oil, but getting value out of data has remained out of reach for most organizations. Prophecy is simplifying Data Engineering with a powerful yet simple-to-use platform that fundamentally fixes the longstanding problem of delivering data for Analytics and Machine Learning reliably and with high quality.

Prophecy is trusted by top Fortune 500 firms (including the largest insurer, a top four bank, and two of the largest credit card processors) to be their primary Data Engineering platform as they transition from legacy ETL products to the cloud and Apache Spark. Prophecy is backed by top VCs and is defining a new product category.

Prophecy's Low-Code Platform enables all the data users to build pipelines using a drag-and-drop interface visually. Uniquely, as you do visual programming, Prophecy produces high-quality code, enabling data users with software engineering practices - code on Github, tests, and continuous delivery. This opens up data engineering to a larger set of users who can focus on business value instead of wrestling with the infrastructure.


Position Summary

Prophecy is used by customers to develop data engineering workflows on Apache Spark, Apache Airflow, and Data Warehouses. We're looking for a solid data engineer who can work with our customers, has a product mindset, can write high-quality Spark code, and be articulate in communication.
