CoinFlip is a leading fintech company powered by cryptocurrency. Believing everyone deserves to participate in the new digital economy, the company operates one of the world’s largest networks of cryptocurrency ATMs — with over 4,000 active kiosks — as well as an over-the-counter trading desk. In 2022, CoinFlip became an international company by expanding into Canada, and launched CoinFlip Ventures, a new initiative designed to support start-up companies. 

CoinFlip placed No. 60 on the 2021 Inc. 5000 list of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. CoinFlip was also named the 2021 and 2022 #1 fastest-growing company in Chicago by Crain’s Business. 

As our growth trajectory continues, we’re looking to quickly expand all of our teams. It’s an exciting time to join CoinFlip as we’re pursuing additional business lines and continued international expansion to further cement us as a leading financial technology company. 

We are seeking a motivated and skilled Data Engineering Intern to join our team.

    • Ensure the best data management and governance practices in data quality, documentation, security, and privacy.  
    • Help automate data etl/elt processes and review scripts to ensure that our data models remain clean, tested, documented, and reliable 
    • Apply knowledge of relational database skills including advanced SQL knowledge and the ability to create complex queries 
    • Identify areas of improvement and optimize data storage, processing, and utilization of cloud resources 
    • Developing and maintaining companywide KPI dashboards

    • Ability to thrive in a fast-paced, constantly improving, start-up environment that focuses on solving problems with iterative technical solutions.
