Senior Data Engineer

About Typeform

One sunny Barcelona morning, two designers sat down to build a beautiful lead gen form for a bathroom company’s showroom. They ended up reimagining the data collection experience, and realized it was one idea they wouldn’t be flushing down the toilet. Today, Typeform is a team of over 330 people from more than 30 countries, with offices in Barcelona, Spain and San Francisco, US.

We’re building a world where brands, businesses, and their communities can have more personal relationships with the people who matter most. To do this, we give people the tools they need to have conversational experiences at scale—because meaningful relationships start with conversations.

From online lead gen forms and engaging quizzes, to face-to-face encounters in the office, help us build more meaningful relationships, one conversation at a time.

About the Team

Different people employ different methods when it comes to making decisions. SWOTs, pros and cons, a coin flip, gut feeling...none of them beat the facts. At Typeform, the Data team is making sure it’s easy for data to become our #1 asset.

Typeform’s data needs are growing, and we need to find new technical solutions to respond to these needs—fast.

That’s where you come in. We’re looking for a passionate Data Engineer to design a big data infrastructure for our machine learning projects, a set of APIs to ingest/expose data, and a coordination framework for the whole thing. All this to drive Typeform to the gold standard of data collection.

Here’s Albert Franzi, our Data Engineering Team Lead:

“In our team, the collaboration between data scientists, machine learning, and data engineers is key. We work together to challenge the current status quo and continuously improve day by day our ingestion, processing and consumption of data; enabling us to grow using cutting edge technology”

We're very proud of what we achieved over 2020. We ran Airflow and Spark on K8s, enabled our DS and ML teams to build their own DAGs with our DAG Factory tool, started ingesting real-time data using Kafka and Spark Structured Streaming, and deployed machine learning models into production by using MLFlow, K8s, and ArgoCD.
