Job Details

Our Mission

At Jimdo, we're big on small. Our mission is to unleash the power of the self-employed and small businesses—and help them thrive. Small businesses are the backbone of the global economy, but they receive little support or recognition. We see them and are here to support them. Join us to help design intuitive tools that enable small businesses to solve complex problems.

We run at a steady pace to achieving what we aim for. We learn best by digging deep into data, staying curious, taking calculated risks, and sometimes even falling down along the way. It's the lessons we learn in the process that make us better problem-solvers for small business owners. If you're motivated by our mission and excited to roll up your sleeves, experiment, learn from mistakes, and make a difference to small businesses around the world, we would love to get to know you.

The Team

The Data Platform team is developing, operating, and improving a highly scalable, robust, and resilient data infrastructure, which is the backbone of all data services, the central data warehouse, and our reporting & analytics infrastructure. As business needs are growing and becoming more diverse, the team plans to increase our systems' scalability and introduce new services for a variety of use cases, ranging from core infrastructure and Data/DevOps tasks to advanced monitoring and anomaly detection. The team cooperates with the Analytics teams in the Data Department to maximize the business impact and works closely with the Jimdo infrastructure teams.

  • We leverage different technologies and languages depending on the problem we try to solve, so we value people who are able to pick up new languages and tools when necessary and are able to find the right tool for the job at hand.
