Date Opened: Jan 4, 2022

Company: Allstate Insurance Company

Avail is a car sharing service to help people get where they want to go–whether that’s to run errands, take an unforgettable road trip, or explore a new city–while helping locals earn cash from their unused cars. We are passionate about making shared transportation safe, simple, and affordable, and redefining what it means to own a car.


We’ve assembled some of the sharpest folks from across industries to compete against the antiquated system of traditional car rental. We put ideas into action and learn along the way in an open, collaborative work environment. As a part of Avail, you’ll make a direct impact and help build a business from the ground up. No matter where you’ve been, we’re always looking for fresh thinking and new perspectives. 


As part of the Avail Data Engineering team, you will be working to manage our ever-growing collection of vehicle sharing and usage data. We support our business analytics and marketing teams by performing data integration and ETL between an increasingly diverse set of data sources and our data warehouse. We will also build big-data applications leveraging techniques from operations research and machine learning to directly enrich, personalize and optimize the Avail car-sharing product. This is a green field opportunity to contribute to the design and implementation of a flexible, scalable data framework for an exciting new sector of the sharing economy. 

Job Description
