Mailchimp is a leading marketing platform for small business. We empower millions of customers around the world to build their brands and grow their companies with a suite of marketing automation, multichannel campaign, CRM, and analytics tools.

We are seeking an engineer to join the Analytics Engineering Team and help us build and support the Mailchimp data informed initiative. This team will be focused on Product integrations, ensuring that the Marketing, Product, and Support departments are able to track user activity and journeys across all Mailchimp properties. You will work closely with a range of product development teams and will support major changes to our properties, including redesigns and experiments.

Most of our teams have at least one distributed member, so we encourage flexible working hours and some telecommuting but you should plan to be in the office most days. We’re willing to help you with relocation if you’re not currently local to one of our offices!

We'd love to hear from you if:

  • You have experience in a software development environment, preferably an interest or capability in full-stack development
  • You have experience driving technical projects, prioritizing work, identifying dependencies, facilitating technical decision and cross-functional team discussions
  • You’re experienced in designing and implementing application architectures and code that are highly scalable, available, maintainable, and performant  
  • You can work independently while also putting an emphasis on mentorship of those around you
  • Experience with user behavior tracking

Bonus Points for:

  • Experience with React JS, PHP, and/or Google Analytics

What you'll do:

  • Set technical direction for and own the design and implementation of the overall system architecture and infrastructure
  • Develop new and enhance existing features as well as investigate and resolve defects
  • Empower team members - including other developers as well as Technical Support and QA - through technical mentoring, contributions to the team’s documentation libraries, and providing automation for manual tasks where appropriate
  • Define and adhere to internal coding standards, development processes, and design best practices
  • Ensure quality by performing thorough testing and leveraging peer reviews for your work and the work of cross functional teams  
  • Help scope, estimate, and prioritize work
  • Embrace and demonstrate our values: humility, creativity, and independence
