It’s a hugely exciting time here at Snowplow. Over the last 7 years, we’ve grown to a brilliant 70 person team that is spread out over 14 countries with nearly 150 customers and many, many more open source users. Snowplow is well placed to weather the ongoing economic storm, having recently closed its Series A2 fundraising with Atlantic Bridge and MMC Ventures

There are tens of thousands of pipelines using our open source pipeline worldwide, collecting data emitted from over half a million sites. Running on AWS and GCP data technologies, it is the platform for teams who want to manage their data in real-time in their own cloud. We also collect, validate, enrich and load billions of events for our customers each day, who also benefit from our online experience and expertise in running our own tech.  

The Opportunity
Snowplow has seen significant growth over the last 12 months and we’re set to grow further in 2021. We’re looking for a Front End Engineer to join our experienced team and develop our new Try Snowplow experience, designed to help prospects to collect and evaluate Snowplow data from their own website, without needing to stand up a full pipeline. You will be joining a team of 20 engineers who work closely with our support, product and customer teams. There is a huge opportunity to learn more about all aspects of engineering and data, from code to customers. 

What you’ll be doing.
Creating an engaging online experience to help prospects learn about our technology and approach to data. 
Helping to design service interfaces that pull information from the pipeline instance for presentation in the UI.
Continuing to improve our testing and deployment processes so that we can ship features quickly and with confidence.
Working closely with our Product Office and the wider team to design solutions for our customers.
Being an active part in decision making on what we build and how we deliver it. You’ll bring a different perspective and we’ll want your input!

You’ll also have:
Opportunities to work on the pipeline and service architecture (predominantly written in Scala) that powers the UI.
Opportunities to contribute to our many open source projects and extending the capability of our data pipeline.

What we’re looking for..
The idea of working for a growing startup excites you.
You have experience working collaboratively on complex engineering projects.
You have experience with our front end stack (Typescript and React); or otherwise with very similar technologies.
Our data security and integrity are fundamental to what we do. You’ll need a solid understanding of security threats and how to overcome them.
You don’t wait to be told what to do. You can accept a mission, drive toward it and recognise when you need support or more direction.
We can’t do everything today. You’ll be pragmatic in your approach to software delivery and balance our speed of learning with our commitment to providing a reliable and trusted service to customers.
Our remote team depends on expert collaborators to work effectively. You’ll be a great communicator and enjoy working closely with the team.
Previous experience in data is a plus, but most importantly you’re interested in data and how it can empower our customers to make better decisions.

What you’ll get in return:
A competitive package, including share options
25 days of holiday a year (plus public holidays)
Freedom to work from wherever suits you best
Cycle to work scheme
Two fantastic company Away Weeks in a different European city each year (or when this isn’t possible, we have “Stay Away Weeks”)
Mental health support including therapy sessions
Work alongside a supportive and talented team with the opportunity to work on cutting edge technology and challenging problems
Grow and develop in a fast-moving, collaborative organisation
MacBook Pro
Convenient location in central London for those who want to work there
Continuous supply of Pact coffee and healthy snacks in the office when you’re here!
