Empathy is for everyone. We help people and organizations develop skills for greater understanding, compassion, and insight via AI-powered analytics, correction, and training of empathy. More empathy equals better employee, customer, and business outcomes.


Empathy is for everyone. mpathic believes empathy is the key to innovation. We help people and organizations develop skills for greater understanding, compassion, and insight via AI-powered analytics, correction, and training of empathy. mpathic is looking for a specialist in Data Engineering to lead the development of our data pipeline and infrastructure. We have a small team of talented engineers working on producing cutting edge ML models and all of those models require lots of data. In this role you’ll be key to defining how we share, manage, and improve our data.

Data Engineering

As a Data Engineer, you'll be a part of a small, high-impact team that works closely together. We are refining an AI system that can provide analysis and empathic corrections for text and audio conversations, kind of like spell check but for empathy. You will be architecting and implementing scalable data solutions for our teams. We work predominantly in AWS, and use microservices for most of our deployments. You would help in defining green field data pipelines that leverage human and machine input at scale.

About you: Core Responsibilities for this role

  • Build, improve, and automate the data ingestion and preparation for model training
  • Write and deploy infrastructure as code for data engineering tasks (currently Python AWS CDK)
  • Improve automated model deployment pipelines
  • Design data management systems to catalog and manage our proprietary data and models
  • Making models first class citizens in our data infrastructure

What we’re looking for:

  • Experience managing data at scale
  • Demonstrated AWS competency (a project or certification)
  • Python 3.x
  • Experience designing relational database schemas
  • Experience working at the intersection of ML models and data

How you'll work

We are a remote-first company. Whether you work from Baltimore, Salt Lake City, or Seattle, you’re 100% part of the team. We will provide you with a computer, equipment, and access to software subscriptions. At mpathic, we have full team and department specific in-person retreats to build trust and sometimes hackathons to accomplish a specific goal in a short period. You can bet we'll be flying to hang out at some point during the year. If you want access to a co-working space - no problem; if you want to work at home - also no problem. Empathy includes understanding the whole person. When deciding what benefits should look like at mpathic, we started by thinking about what employees need not only to work well, but to live well. Benefits impact how we act, rest, grieve, set boundaries, and take care of ourselves and others — and that means quality benefits are a fundamental part of our empathy company and, in the big picture, an empathic society. We have a dedicated Ombudsperson, DEIB Director, and Head of People and Culture dedicated to making your time at empathic safe, values-aligned, and designed to foster growth (We are an empathy company after all!). Read more about our Mission, Vision, and Values here. You'll have 100% funded employee healthcare benefits, company-wide weeks off, unlimited PTO, training and education funding, parental leave, and more. See our full benefits policy Benefits at mpathic; and our Equal Pay Commitment.


Salary is dependent on experience, commensurate with other engineers at mpathic. Following our Equal Pay Commitment, we have salary banding and established vesting schedules for equity.

We're excited to meet you!

Founded by a therapist with a focus on Empathy we are fully committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion in both our workplace and in the product we are creating. As a company, we want to move beyond Diversity Equity Inclusion Belonging (DEIB). We call this work Integrity because it is essential to who we are as a company. By having a dedicated DEIB officer, a Head of People and Culture, and an Integrity (DEIB) roadmap, we are able to focus on deliverable outcomes in the spirit of anti-racism, intersectionality, and equity. More importantly, we recognize that there are ingrained historical inequities in the tech industries and larger systems as a whole, and strive to make our work culture the outlier. We know that we are not perfect and are constantly making steps to make mpathic as inclusive as possible. This means creating space for minoritized groups to offer feedback and recognizing our own privilege in the workplace.
