Senior Data Engineer (m/f/d)

At Jimdo, our mission is to help small businesses start, grow, and ultimately thrive online. Small businesses face new challenges with very little support or recognition. We know how hard this can be because we have been in their position. That’s where you can help us—by designing intuitive tools to help small businesses solve complex problems.

With a forward-leaning and self-driven attitude, we continue to find new ways to help our customers get their ideas out into the world. As a team, we run at a steady pace to achieve what we aim for. We learn best by gathering data, trying new things, and sometimes even falling down along the way. It’s the lessons we learn in the process that make us better problem-solvers for small business owners.

If you’re motivated by our mission and excited to roll up your sleeves, try new things, learn from mistakes, and make a difference to small businesses around the world, we would love to work with you.

The Team

The Data Engineering team is developing, operating, and improving highly scalable data pipelines that are the main providers of data for all decision making in the company.

As business needs are growing and becoming more diverse, the team plans to expand and optimize the data pipeline architecture, implement new tools for collecting data, and enable real-time data transformations for machine learning, analytics and data science. The team cooperates with the Analytics teams in the Data Department in order to maximize the business impact and also works closely with the Data infrastructure team.


Jimdo is a global company, and we are proud to work with people of 50+ nationalities working from 19 countries. We are happy to continue our journey and broaden the geographics of our presence.

We are happy to invite you to work from any location where you are eligible to work. All the local labour regulations will be applied (local currency, taxation, contractual terms, public holidays, etc.).

Wherever your working location will be, we will ensure you get proper onboarding and that you are fully equipped to become part of the team from day one.

What you'll do

As a senior data Engineer, you will be working on end to end solutions to enable analysts, analytics engineers and data analysts to create insights on top of the data provided.

  • DBT

  • AWS (S3, Kinesis, DMS, redshift, etc)

What We Value

  • Jimdo's success is rooted in no small part in consequently using state-of-the-art cloud services. We are looking for engineers that have a solid grasp of cloud technologies and have a strong interest in distributed systems.
  • Our data infrastructure and the services running on top of it ultimately contribute to the success of our several millions of customers and we believe that in the future data will play an even bigger role both for our users and for Jimdo. You fit right in if you share the same view about creating value from data and have experience in building and operating great tooling for this purpose.
  • We leverage different technologies and languages depending on the problem we try to solve, so we value people who are able to pick up new languages and tools when necessary and are able to find the right tool for the job at hand. Currently, we use e.g. Python and Java, but also some Ruby and Kotlin.
  • You have excellent problem-solving skills. You use a systematic and thorough approach. You think from the first principles. You have a bias for action and know how to diagnose and resolve problems within complex systems.
