Senior Data Engineer - Remote

Melbourne, Victoria /
Spatial Data /
Full Time
Aglet today is a digital sneaker collection game, powered by step-counting and an ever expanding catalogue of virtual sneakers. Tomorrow, Aglet will revolutionize how we play games, how we interact with brands, and how the next Virgil Abloh will be discovered.

Aglet is powered by Onlife, a bold company and vision dedicated to inspiring the world to Play Life via a series of gamified overlays of our real, location based, context-rich lives, as we live them. We think we’ve only scratched the surface of evolving our augmented lives - starting with sneakers and streetwear. We believe that “the street” is where the community is - and today, the street is in games. We consider our current app only “gamified.” Our next steps will lead Aglet to provide vastly deeper challenges, storylines, and exhilaration from collection, trading, and creating.

We are a fully remote, creative team distributed around the globe looking for novel ways to bring the metaverse to life.

We’re looking for someone to build and enhance our data engineering infrastructure to support geo-spatial analysis at speed and scale in order to enable meaningful in-game dynamic and commerce experiences.

    • Build and manage pipelines for supporting various applications and use cases related to geo-spatial mobility, ensuring outputs easily usable.
    • Deal with large, complex and potentially “dirty” datasets by cleaning and transformation so that they can be utilised for various use cases. 
    • Manage data infrastructure engineering costs by optimising data performance, memory and disk space usage.
    • Effectively and insightfully handle requests to visualise aspects of the datascape
