Data Engineer

Broomfield, CO

Biofire’s mission is to redesign firearms from the ground up for the 21st century, bringing much-needed innovation to a space that has seen little innovation in 50 years. Named the “Tesla of the gun world” by the WSJ, Biofire is enabling radically safer ownership of firearms.

A technological solution that sidesteps the political conversation around guns, Biofire’s Smart Gun™ is uniquely able to prevent avoidable and accidental gun deaths. By offering gun owners the option of a Smart Gun™ that only they or someone they authorize can use, we are empowering them with full control over their firearm so that the next time a child or teenager finds a gun, it will be locked and unusable. This is just the beginning of the improvements we will bring to market by rethinking everything to create the modern firearm.

Biofire has received international recognition in the WSJ, NYT, Bloomberg, Fast Company and many more for our industry-changing technology. We are backed by expert investors, founders and advisors.


You will be an integral part of a team of talented individuals passionate about solving hard problems to make Biofire’s mission a success. We operate in a fast paced, high accountability, “there is no box” environment where the goal is always to reach the best solution as efficiently as possible. Adaptability and willingness to accept feedback are critical.

As a Data Engineer at Biofire you will be responsible for building and maintaining scalable pipelines, structuring data and building tools that enable your teammates to succeed across the company. You will be a champion for bringing data into day to day operations, doing the technical heavy lifting to power the company’s work and supporting and training other members of the team to build on top of the foundation you create. To succeed you will need to be able to programmatically work with data at scale, spot opportunities where data could accelerate the team, and continuously improve Biofire’s overall data environment. You will need to be a curious problem-solver, rapidly learning Biofire’s business problems and determining how to help solve them with data. If you’re excited about advancing Biofire’s mission through data, we encourage you to apply.


Day to day responsibilities of the role will include:

  • Data pipeline development, management, and optimization;

  • Centrally integrating and structuring data across the company, creating a common ontology on which the company can build;

  • Partnering with stakeholders across the company to develop data-driven solutions for their use cases;

  • Training teammates on data, workflows, and tools, to ensure every member of the team is equipped to utilize their data;

  • Proactively identifying opportunities to bring data into day-to-day business operations and engaging the relevant stakeholders to build them.
