iFixit is the world’s largest repository of repair information online for the general public. As a part of that mission, data quality is at the heart of iFixit's mission to help repair the world.
We are looking for a Data Engineer responsible for addressing data quality issues including sourcing, maintaining, automating and reporting on the data that drives iFixit's guides and parts supply.
This person will also be responsible for sourcing, grooming, and managing repair data sources of all kinds. Here’s a few recent projects that we’ve completed:
Making repair information easy to find and navigate is a key facilitator of the iFixit mission to fix the world, so identifying, sourcing, structuring and organizing repair data is key to our customer's success.

Tools we like: Bash, MySQL, MongoDB, R, Python, PHP, Scrapy, Shiny, Beautifulsoup, Imagemagick, Tesseract, OCRMyPDF, Docker, OpenRefine, Google Docs, and anything else that gets the job done.
