About Us

Our data teams schedule over 1000 Python pipelines and over 350 Spark pipelines every 24 hours, resulting in over 5000 data processing tasks each day. Additionally, our data endeavors leverage datasets ranging in size from a few hundred rows to a few hundred billion rows. The Doximity data teams rely heavily on Python3, Airflow, Spark, MySQL, and Snowflake. To support this large undertaking, the data infrastructure team uses AWS, Terraform, and Docker to manage a high-performing and horizontally scalable data stack. The data infrastructure team is responsible for enabling and empowering the data analysts, machine learning engineers, and data engineers at Doximity. We provide and evolve a foundation on which to build, and ensure that incidental complexities melt into our abstractions. Doximity has worked as a distributed team for a long time; pre-pandemic, Doximity was already about 65% distributed.
