Engineering – Core Services /
The Role

The Core Business Objects team at Outreach owns the data and data workflows that drive the Outreach product itself. Their work drives revenue efficiency for our customers and innovates in the management and visualization of data. Our service performs more than 100 million inbound and outbound sync operations per day under an SLA that demands less than two minutes of latency. Full-Stack Engineers on the team own the way users interact with their data in silo or in bulk. They are responsible for enabling bridging the gap between customers interacting with the product and the implementation of awesome features.

Full-Stack Engineers on the Core Business Objects team understand job scheduling, driving work in batches, and are good at building scalable systems that handle data that users find digestible. They prefer simplicity and elegance over complexity, but have experience developing flexible solutions that adapt to different levels of users. They look to their customers for guidance on what's useful and important and drive toward implementing it. They can iterate quickly given feedback from customers, program leads, and designers.

Our data integration features let users select which data is communicated between those systems, how it is placed, and how often it is moved. Integration features are implemented with synchronization jobs; monitoring those jobs is key to keeping the data flowing, so streamlining the process and making its results visible and diagnosable is paramount.

About the Team

To support data management and movement in the application, the team does work to enable our users to reliably and efficiently integrate, consume, and modify data sets from internal and external data sources. The core challenges in the space revolve around data translation between disparate data-sources, seamless data import and export capabilities, and providing performant and responsive workflows to update and sync data between different sources.

This team’s mission is to continually reduce the time spent by customer-facing representatives on data access and modification across different systems by providing them with meaningful and relevant data aggregated at their fingertips, to increase the time they can invest in adding value for their customers.
