About Iggy 🌱

Iggy is the first developer toolkit that simplifies access to complex location data. Founded by an Ex-Airbnb data scientist (Lindsay) and cartographer (Zack), we empower companies to build innovative products and models.

We are a remote WFH team, with team members on the East and West Coasts, from Portland OR, Berkeley and SF, CA, and Seattle, WA to Philadelphia, PA, St. Pete, FL and Cambridge MA. As a remote first team, we will always offer first-class support for remote team members.

We’re a seed-stage startup backed by some amazing institutional investors including First Round Capital and Amplify, an incredible micro VC Brianne Kimmel/WLV, the Airbnb Alumni Investment Syndicate AirAngels, as well as founders from Plaid, Looker and Instacart and other high value-add investors.

You'll be joining a small, fun, mission-oriented and mature team. We're intentional about the products we build and the culture we create. We value creativity, grit, curiosity, kindness and diversity. We love what we do for work, and we do other things too: one of our founders has sailed around the world and is in a rock band, another is an avid rock climber, traveler, and cheese fanatic. We value who you are outside/beyond work and are excited to support you in your passions.

About the Role

Data is foundational to what we are building at Iggy. In this role you will be part of the team building that foundation for our data products and services. We are looking for someone that can build systems for data ingestion, assessment, and sourcing. This will involve creating and configuring data pipelines, sourcing datasets from public and private sources, evaluating data quality / coverage, maintaining data docs and developing a system to track the dataset ingestion process. As we scale up data ingestion, you'll identify opportunities to automate / streamline our process and build tooling to implement those improvements.

We’re looking for someone with the confidence to move quickly and make big decisions, the humility to own mistakes you make along the way, and the resilience to weather the ups and downs of a category-defining startup.

You will have wide latitude on architectural decisions and implementation. You will be a critical team member on our journey from 0-1, with massive impact.
