Webflow is a visual web development platform that empowers non-coders to create incredible experiences for the web.

We’re looking for a Data Engineer to help us build the tools, data pipelines, systems integrations and scale infrastructure. You’ll join our Data, Analytics and Telemetry Engineering (DATE) team, which focuses on transforming Webflow's data analytics and observability capabilities while building a robust, extensible and secure foundation for the future.

 About the role

  • Location: San Francisco HQ, US Remote, or ON/BC, Canada 
  • Full-time

As a Data Engineer, you’ll ...

  • Work on building new features and refactoring efforts across our stack
  • Design and implement scalable data pipelines
  • Build integrations with third parties
  • Rearchitect/remodel Webflow's data stores
  • Improve and build observability capabilities for all systems across the company
  • Secure customer data across all data stores
  • Work on a highly technical platform that empowers hundreds of thousands of people, and serves millions of page views an hour
  • Cross-collaborate with software engineers, product managers, designers, and QA analysts in an autonomous, supportive team environment
  • Build and maintain unit and integration tests
  • Collaborate with other engineers on best practice, design considerations, and quality
  • Support others on your team in a technical capacity

These responsibilities are just the start! At Webflow, we encourage you to contribute wherever your interests take you — and shape your role accordingly. 

About you 

You’ll thrive as a Data Engineer if you have:

  •  5+ years of experience building scalable, multi-tenant environments
  • Previous experience in either Kubernetes, Docker, Terraform, Chef, Puppet, or Ansible
  • Previous experience in JavaScript, and Node.js
  • Previous experience in Java, Scala or Python
  • A deep understanding of data design and modeling
  • Built and worked with data streams (Kafka, Kinesis)
  • A deep understanding of design patterns — and an even better knowledge of when to apply them

If you don’t meet 100% of the above qualifications, you should still seriously consider applying. Studies show that you can still be considered for a role if you meet just 50% of the role’s requirements.

  • We’ll invest in your physical and mental well-being with health, dental, and vision benefits and a monthly stipend for health and wellness expenses 
  • We’ll pay you to take a vacation … seriously. We’ll give you a $1,000 bonus for taking your first vacation with us that is more than 5 days 
  • We offer flexible parental leave 
  • We give you a 5 week sabbatical after 5 years of service
