  • Stockholm

We are looking for a Data Engineer to join our Data Analytics team. Mentimeter is one of the fastest growing companies in Sweden (Gasell 2018). One of the main reasons we are so successful is our constant focus on being data-driven in Product development, Marketing and Sales. Leveraging data is key in our mission to understand our users to offer them the best Mentimeter experience possible, and so we are expanding our Data Analytics team with a Data Engineer.

In this role you will collaborate closely with teams across all departments to enable better use of our data. You will be a key member in the Data Analytics team, making sure we can use our data to its full extent and ensuring we have good practices in place for future growth. As such you will be developing our data warehouse and ETL pipelines as well as being a key stakeholder in collaborating with all different teams to ensure maximum data-usage efficiency across Mentimeter, through our BI systems and data education.

We work in small, independent, self-organizing teams. With a large interest across the whole organisation to become more data-driven, we value a self-starting hands-on approach to challenges ahead and a willingness to engage and collaborate on best practices for data use within the company. You will be working closely with our Data Analytics Director and the Platform team on a regular basis, and members of other departments on a project level.

What you'll do:

  • Take ownership and responsibility for the quality of our data with consideration on efficiency and performance
  • Develop and optimize our data pipelines, data collection, ETL-processes and data warehouse
  • Be responsible for the maintenance of BI tools and related systems used in Mentimeter, and scaling such systems and platforms as we grow
  • Work closely with different stakeholders across the business, to build solutions and data sets to enable new insights, and help them discover new opportunities
  • Be the glue between engineering and analysis
