About us

Community Tech Alliance is a group of progressive technologists and strategists formed to provide data infrastructure building blocks to the progressive ecosystem at a low cost. CTA seeks to uplevel program impact by unlocking the potential of data, using software and data engineering, and removing the barriers to entry. We are a small team of engineers, data practitioners, product managers, and strategists looking to create infrastructure for progressive change.

Community Tech Alliance believes strongly that:

  • Inclusive teams are strongest, and supportive work environments take investment, intentionality, and openness
  • Empathy is the cornerstone of building smart technology solutions
  • All team members should take ownership of the project and team’s development
  • Iteration is key, and smart solutions require action not perfection
  • Nothing great has been built without making mistakes and learning from them

Job requirements

As a Data Engineer, you should:

  • Have experience working to build new pipelines and integrations using cloud platforms like Google Cloud Platform or Amazon Web Services
  • Have experience working day-to-day using a popular data warehouse, like Redshift, Vertica, BigQuery, or Snowflake
  • Bring a security-first mindset to how we build and support products
  • Act autonomously and thrive in a strong team environment, be excited to work in a fully remote role

We use things like:

  • Python and SQL in Linux
  • Apache Airflow, DBT, Airbyte, and other open-source data tooling
  • Terraform and infrastructure management tools

  • Amazon Redshift

We don’t expect every applicant to know or have worked with every technology we’ve listed, so we urge you to apply if you’re interested and some of the above apply to you! We’re looking for engineers of all levels and hiring for the people over the position above all else.
