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 300 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 Tech Foundation organization and collaborates closely with the Data and Analytics organization which consists of other embedded and central teams of data scientists, analysts and insight people. Here, you’ll be working on a data ecosystem that serves all of the departments (Product, Marketing, Sales and Finance) with both data as well as infrastructure. You will have a direct impact on the future of Mentimeter’s business and product decisions.

As a Senior Data Engineer, you will be involved in architecting and building data platforms to tackle business and technical use cases. We currently use Heroku and AWS with technologies such as Postgres, Redshift, Looker, ECS, Prefect, dbt, Python, TypeScript and Terraform. We are always exploring new technologies and you would also be part of the next leap in data platform maturity. Initially your team will consist of a Lead and four Data Engineers.

Further enriching our vision is the emerging potential of Large Language Models (LLMs) and Generative AI. The synergy between LLMs and Mentimeter is a match made in the heavens. We anticipate lots of opportunities in which AI could profoundly influence the evolution of our product and our internal operations. In your capacity as a Senior Data Engineer, you would play a critical role in building the foundations that would fuel this future, with data.

Key responsibilities:

  • Architect, integrate and maintain batch and stream data pipelines between operational and analytical databases as well as third party systems.
  • Collaborate with product developers, analytics engineers and data scientists to deliver new data features within the data warehouse or other systems.
  • Provide contextual and best-practice level contributions to the Data Engineering team from a technical standpoint and ensure proper and scalable architectural decisions and life cycle.
  • Collaborate with analytics engineers to validate and ensure high data quality.
  • Maintain a performant data warehouse.

We believe you have:

  • 5-8 years of previous experience working as a data engineer, data heavy backend developer or similar.
  • Experience of software engineering and programming (Python, SQL, Java, Scala) in a professional environment.
  • Experience building and maintaining a data platform in AWS.
  • 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 beneficial if you have:

  • Experience with Data warehouse systems setup and migration in cloud environments such as AWS, GCP or Azure.
  • Prior tech lead experience.
  • Experience with Snowflake and/or Databricks.
  • Experience with GDPR compliance requirements around data in transit and data at rest.
  • Experience with stream processing and real time systems.
  • Experience with ML engineering.
  • Professional experience working in an agile environment.
  • Experience with attracting, finding and growing talented professionals
