Senior Data Engineer (m/f/d)

Job description

Jimdo’s mission is to unleash the power of self-employed small business owners, the backbone of the global economy, and help them thrive. We offer products and services to help founders start, grow, and manage their businesses.

Jimdo was founded by three school friends in 2007 in a farmhouse in Northern Germany. Today, we’re a growing profitable business with a team of 250+ people from 50 nationalities based in over 15 countries. We have a physical location in Hamburg, Germany, where teams come together for in-person collaboration. Jimdo started as a website builder, and has helped businesses create over 32 million websites. Over the years, our portfolio evolved to specifically serve the unique needs of microbusinesses. In addition to our GDPR-compliant website builder powered by AI, we offer an online store, logo creator, legal text generator, business listings, social media integration, SEO, and more.

We are constantly developing new products and services that make the lives of microbusiness owners easier and help fuel their businesses. If you’re inspired by our mission and like the idea of working for a dynamic remote-first company where you can create impact from day 1, we’d love to meet you!

What you'll do:

The Data Engineering team runs a highly scalable data platform with the goal to empower Jimdo colleagues and customers with timely, actionable and reliable data.

Jimdoers have an insatiable appetite for data! Executives want to understand the business direction and identify untapped opportunities. Product and Marketing teams are constantly measuring the success of their actions and running experiments. Engineers want to easily implement event tracking and augment their applications with real time data intelligence. As a Data Engineer, you will be at the heart of all of this, and collaborate very closely with analytics engineers, analysts, and many more users of our data platform to understand their challenges and solve them with scalable, reliable data products.

  • Your work will involve building, optimising and maintaining data pipelines to ingest, transform and deliver data.
  • You will be a key owner of our data platform, responsible for the resilience and reliability of the platform and the quality of the data.
  • You will also be expected to design, build and operate parts of the data infrastructure and DataOps tooling (with support from other engineers).

Our Data Platform is built on best-of-class stack and constantly evolving. At this point we mostly use AWS stack (Redshift, S3, DMS, Kinesis and more) , although we are currently replatforming to Snowflake. We also make heavy use of Python, SQL, DBT and Airflow for our data pipelines. Our infrastructure is built on Kubernetes, Docker, and Github Actions, and uses Terraform.

What We Value:

  • We achieve quality through technical excellence. For a business to successfully use data to drive decisions and actions it must be able to have access to reliable, accurate, and timely data. Reports, dashboards, data pipelines and other data assets that are considered ‘production-grade’ must be built with a focus on quality and reliability.
  • Speed matters more than perfection. Sometimes an approximate answer to the right question, at the right time, matters more than an exact answer to the wrong question or too late. Data teams should aim to deliver maximum value as quickly and simply as possible, even if that means cutting down on features and details that are adding less value.
  • We are great partners. Successful data teams build strong relationships with the various business stakeholders to ensure that they proactively address the most pressing business problems and drive actions that will yield maximum value.
  • We know our customers. Successful data teams must constantly ensure that they have deep knowledge of Jimdo’s customers and understand the customer experience.

Jimdo is proud to be an equal opportunity employer. This means that we don’t discriminate based on race or ethnic origin, color, the language(s) you speak, where you (or your parents) are from, or whether or not you consider yourself to have a disability. Neither will your age, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, beliefs, or political opinions play a part in your application with us. We’re a diverse team in so many ways, and we love it that way.

By sending your application, you declare that you read and understand the Jimdo Applicant Privacy Policy.

Please let the company know that you found this position on this Job Board as a way to support us, so we can keep posting cool jobs.
