Kloudio is a seed stage company focused on providing non-technical teams such as financial planning and analysis (FP&A) easy access to data- wherever it sits within the enterprise- in a format easy to analyze. The inability for most knowledge workers within an organization to engage with business intelligence tools creates many inefficiencies and time lag between data engineers and the knowledge worker to get routine reports. Kloudio sits between the data storage, data warehouses, or SaaS applications and the end user analytical applications such as Excel, Google Sheets, Tableau or Looker.We are looking for a lead backend engineer to join the Data Platform team. If you are passionate about simplifying data access for non-technical users, we would like to speak with you. This position requires candidates with a solid background in computer science.
