Blockchain technology is powering a growing wave of innovation. Businesses and governments around the world are using blockchains to make banking more efficient, connect with their customers, and investigate criminal cases. As adoption of blockchain technology grows, more and more organizations seek access to all this ecosystem has to offer. That’s where Chainalysis comes in. We provide complete knowledge of what’s happening on blockchains through our data, services, and solutions. With Chainalysis, organizations can navigate blockchains safely and with confidence.

The Data Engineering and Architecture (DEA) team is responsible for unlocking the value in Chainalysis’ corporate data.

The Data Engineer will design, build and maintain data integrations and automations between enterprise SaaS platforms and data warehouses. This work will be done in close partnership with colleagues in DEA to spin up and maintain data pipelines that support critical data-driven decisions across the company.

The ideal candidate will have experience working closely with Analytics and Business Systems stakeholders to empower business leaders and users by enabling solutions that will help them make decisions.
