Our vision is to transform presentations, meetings and lectures by turning passive audiences into engaged contributors. We make this possible through our interactive presentation platform where the traditional presentation monologue becomes an inclusive dialogue. We believe in the power of together and that the most successful leaders listen to be heard.

With Mentimeter, users become the best presenter they can be. Meetings become more productive, participants learn more and have fun whilst doing it.

We have more than 200 million users and customers worldwide, on our way of making the world a better place, one presentation at a time.

The DPT team:

The Data Platform Team at Mentimeter builds data products and services that influence the future path of the company. The team is part of the larger Data and Analytics organization which consists of other embedded and central teams of data scientists, analysts and insight people.

  • Experience of software engineering and programming (Python, SQL, Java, Scala) in a professional environment. 
  • Proficient knowledge of architecture and design (patterns, reliability, scalability, quality) of systems.
  • Ability to think strategically to assess priorities, possible solution alternatives and understand trade-offs before committing to a way forward. 
  • Experience with fast prototyping.
  • Good communication and pedagogical skills to lead and coach the technical engineering team.
  • Comfortable communicating with a diverse set of technical and business stakeholders in English, especially written (daily work is carried out in English and the Mentimeter team currently boasts 50+ different nationalities).

It is highly beneficial if you have:

  • Experience with Data warehouse systems setup and migration.
