(Senior) Analytics Engineer

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.

Your Mission

As an Analytics Engineer within the Business Intelligence team, your area of focus will be owning the Business Logics within our Data department.

You’ll be the bridge between the Data Engineers and all other Analysts by transforming and shaping the data to allow Analysts to work with it every day. The Data Engineers are making data from new data sources available (internal & external sources) and it’ll be your responsibility to transform this data into well-structured tables that can be queried from Analysts.

You’ll work closely with the Data Engineers and all other Analysts in the company to understand what they want to achieve and how to create models, predictions or table structures that can benefit everybody. Right now our ETL process is running in Python and most of our models & predictions are based on a rule-set implemented with SQL, but we are open to moving to the next level with this.

We work with AWS Redshift, Tableau, Python, Github & Google Analytics.

If you are passionate about empowering people in making data-driven decisions and have a results-driven personality, then we're eager to get to know you.
