Data Engineer

Job description

Data is a fundamental piece of the Linktree product and we are growing our data team to help us offer our customers the best possible data insights. We don’t on-sell our data either, we use it to make product decisions and for our customers to optimise their Linktree’s.


This role will work with our Data Engineering Lead Rosyll and a team of 2 other engineers but this team will grow quickly in 2021. As a company, we have gone from 18 to over 50 staff, from 4 million customers to over 10 million and from bootstrap to a VC backed scale up - all in 2020.


We use a modern stack that includes Snowflake, Python, AWS Kinesis, S3, Lambda, Glue, RDS, DynamoDB, Athena, EventBridge and SQL.


You would use your Data engineering skills to :

  • Build analytics features that will be consumed by the users of the application.
  • Assist with ad-hoc analysis and use of data for internal decision-making processes.
  • Collaborate with internal consumers of data, building continually useful dashboards and generating meaningful insights.
  • Design, build, test and maintain data pipelines to pull together information from different data sources; integrate, consolidate and structure it for use in individual analytics applications
  • Contribute to the vision and roadmap of Linktree's data platform.

Requirements


Having experience as a data engineer, using similar tech stacks and in SaaS/Product environments as a great start. Mid or Senior as we are looking for multiple engineers to start in early 2021. 


We hire with a people-first approach, so more importantly as a human, you will be collaborative, curious, enjoy solving complex problems and have empathy for the growing pains of a rapidly scaling startup.


Linktree's company culture and values are based around collaboration, diversity, inclusion, and flexibility. Those are all nice words but to give you some more specific examples:


  • We are a family-friendly and flexible work environment with our team with a number of our team working hours around school and home commitments.
  • We have several diversity and inclusion initiatives underway, including a D&I council, training for all staff on neurodiversity and the incorporation of a transgender inclusion policy.
  • Our team is diverse across age, gender, and race and we are very proud of that.
  • Due to COVID we are all remote but even when COVID is behind us, we will be a mixed remote and in-office company. With our team already spread across 8 locations and 3 countries, we will always be some form of remote.
  • We prioritise our team's mental health, with all employees have free access to Smiling Mind & Uprise, including 1:1 coaching sessions from qualified psychologists or counsellors.


The Linktree story:
