Senior Data Platform 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 achieving 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 Platform team is developing, operating, and improving a highly scalable, robust, and resilient data infrastructure which is the backbone of all data services, the central data warehouse, and our reporting & analytics infrastructure. As business needs are growing and becoming more diverse, the team plans to increase the scalability of our systems and to introduce new services for a variety of use cases, ranging from core infrastructure and Data/DevOps tasks to advanced monitoring and anomaly detection. The team cooperates with the Analytics teams in the Data Department in order to maximize the business impact and also works closely with the Jimdo infrastructure teams.
