(Senior) Data Engineer

As a Data Engineer, you are in charge of our data warehouse and data pipelines. To support our stakeholders in the creation of specialized dashboards and reports, you manage a diverse set of data sources by utilizing different ETL platforms and building custom connectors. Your mission is to enable our team to make decisions with a 360-degree view of our business and user. In your role you work closely with your stakeholders and manage your own data engineering roadmap.


Our Highsnobiety Tech/Product organization consists of 3 interdisciplinary and self-organized teams with a total of 10+ dedicated employees. Scrum and Kanban are our methods of choice for a transparent and open product management. Every team is continuously delivering software and is closely collaborating with their stakeholders. We organize regular product demos to share our progress, and Hack days to innovate our products. For a transparent and well balanced work culture, the entire department shares their feedback with each other in a monthly retrospective to celebrate successes and to improve methods.

We serve both internal and external users and believe in high standards when building our products. To ensure quality, we apply code reviews, extreme programming methods and test coverage tracking. Also, we follow a “you build it – you run it” approach and deploy our services on Google Cloud Platform using Docker and Kubernetes.

As technology moves fast, it’s key for us to invest in our employees’ growth. We provide access to the best learning platforms, we run tech workshops, organize regular pair-programming sessions with senior developers and we also sponsor conference visits. Scrum is our method of choice for a transparent, open and self-organized product and project management.
