Who we are

We're building a prayer and meditation app. One that is authentically Christian and Catholic, while at the same time a resource for anyone looking to grow deeper in a relationship with God. We believe that people are hungry for peace, and that there is no surer way to find it than by learning to sit in silence with Christ: “Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest” (Mt 11:28). 

Our goal is to build something truly great. Something that combines the beauty of the Church’s spirituality with world-class product and content execution.

We launched the app in December of 2018 and have been blown away with the incredible growth & traction. Hallow has been downloaded over 10 million times with over 200,000 5-star reviews. We're blessed to be backed by some of the best mission-driven investors in the world and are excited to build out the team to help a lot more folks grow closer to God.

We are a startup. We move quickly and take big swings. We are a small and fast moving team and each person is responsible for making an impact. It is hard work, but also deeply meaningful. We’d be honored & humbled if you’d consider joining us. 

Tldr: We are seeking an experienced Data Engineer to join our team and lead the effort of scaling the data platform & infrastructure and ensuring we are collecting reliable data at the right time in the right way.

What You'll Do

    • Build scalable data infrastructure: Build data models, ETL processes, and data integrations to ensure a scalable and robust data infrastructure. Build new and support existing data pipelines.
    • Ensure data quality: Collaborate with data analysts and software engineers to ensure data quality, accuracy, and consistency
    • Improve data performance: Monitor and troubleshoot the performance of the data infrastructure and make recommendations for improvements

What You'll Love

    • Mission: This work is incredibly humbling. Every day we hear amazing stories and we get the pleasure of working on something that’s impacting lives. One of our favorite user quotes: “I hate quoting an old, overused cliche, but I’ve been very lost. And I think for the first time in a while I may be found.”
    • Growth: You’ll get to journey with a VC-backed Silicon Valley startup from the beginning. When the company is this small, every employee is a core team member who is expected to help build the company as a whole as we settle into a culture and continue to expand the team.
    • Flexibility: HQ will be in Chicago with the full team and would love to have everyone there. That being said, we’re super flexible with location / hours; don’t care when or where you work, just that it gets done.
    • Comp: We pay competitive market rates both in terms of equity, cash, & benefits. 

What We're Looking For

    • Passion: We’re looking for someone excited and passionate about our mission, and passionate about data engineering.
    • Experience: A foundation of 3+ years of experience in data engineering; strong knowledge of SQL and OOP in Python or other programming language; experience with Snowflake or Redshift, Airflow, and DBT strongly preferred
    • Grit & Detail-Oriented: A start-up is tough and we really care about what we’re doing. You'll be jumping into a brand new role on a brand-new team - perseverance and attention to detail are important.
$120,000 - $160,000 a year
The above range only includes cash compensation. Each full-time employee in the US also receives significant equity compensation, which has the potential to be the biggest economic benefit of joining Hallow, alongside a top-tier benefits package (e.g., unlimited PTO, insurance, remote-flexible work, fully paid parental leave, 401(k) match, and stipends for health & wellness, home-office, and learning).

The above range for cash compensation will be split between a base salary and target annual bonus. These ranges are just initial estimates. They may vary depending on market or location and may be adjusted depending on the person we end up hiring for this role, their experience, and market dynamics.
We are honored that you'd consider joining the team and look forward to connecting with you.
