Software Engineer III, Data Development


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

We’re looking for a Software Engineer III to work with a high performing group of software engineers and analysts. This newly formed team will support the development, configuration and architecture of data sources and integrations across Mailchimp. 

In this position we seek someone who’s excited to work with a dynamic, diverse group of engineers and managers who are all used to wearing multiple hats to get the job done. Our primary customers are Mailchimp Data Scientists and we work on a custom model-serving framework housed in Kubernetes. We also write services enabling internal and external customers to consume the ever-expanding list of data science models we support! We seek someone who’s comfortable collaborating with Machine Learning engineers on how we should better scale our cloud infrastructure to continually outpace our steadily-growing service traffic.

We’re also looking for 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. 

What you’ll do here:

  • Work with ML Engineering on scaling our traffic patterns and cloud footprint in order to provide low-latency answers to clients calling our services. Participate in and cultivate a culture of direct, compassionate feedback. Engage in a results-oriented work style, and encourage transparent communication. Facilitate effective collaboration and teamwork. 
  • Work with the engineering department leadership to iterate on the strategic Data Services Roadmap
  • Help deploy, configure, operationalize, maintain, and monitor our solutions.
  • Help shape and steer our cloud infrastructure roadmap
  • Work with teams introducing new data sources to ensure our integrations adhere to consistent, scalable patterns and Mailchimp compliance and governance requirements
  • Work with Data Science and ML Engineering on developing services in python to consume the results of our data science models.
  • Help identify and remove obstacles to project execution

We’d love to hear from you if:

  • You have working knowledge of Docker and Kubernetes
  • You have some experience with Python and maybe a twist of Java
  • You’ve got experience with Cloud Data Infrastructure products (we use Google Cloud, but experience with other vendors is also useful)
  • You have a passion for writing clean and simple code, and follow good development and testing practices
  • You enjoy defining processes for how we scale. Strategizing our path forward is every bit as important as our execution
  • You've got experience working with cross functional teams
  • You have the desire to work in a highly-collaborative environment, and actively contribute to code reviews, software design specs, team-level office hours, etc.

We dabble in quite a few items, however we’re more interested in your ability to learn and collaborate with our teams while remaining relentless on meeting the needs of our customers. Many of our amazing engineers have picked up the languages we use while working here. We mentioned a lot of items in the description, and want to encourage all peeps to apply. We don’t expect you to be familiar with everything here!

At Mailchimp, we understand that experience comes in many forms. We don’t just accept differences, we celebrate them, support them, and hire peeps from a wide variety of backgrounds because it makes our company stronger. We’re dedicated to adding new perspectives to the team - so if your experience aligns with what we’re looking for (even if you don’t check every single box), please consider applying!
