We seek someone comfortable with supporting the requirement definition and development for both customer-facing services and highly-visible business intelligence efforts.

We seek someone with an understanding of why and how diverse teams build better software and create better cultures. Data Services is a team with a vibrant, supportive, empowered, inclusive and positive culture. We like to get things done and feel strongly about customer service and the value we bring to Mailchimp. An ideal candidate will understand the importance of that culture to the team’s productivity and overall benefit this has to Mailchimp as a whole.

    • Experience developing and maintaining data-intensive applications using open source tools
    • Experience with data warehousing in BigQuery, Teradata, Hive, Oracle, etc.
