Lead Data Engineer
Do you have experience in data engineering and want to be part of building something huge, from scratch? Are you motivated by using cutting-edge technologies and taking a Lead role in a growing product company?
Join SeenThis as Lead Data Engineer and become an important part of creating a systematic and structured approach to data collection, to empower a data-driven culture and product development.
SeenThis is a streaming technology company that optimizes the delivery of videos and images to improve speed, quality and conversion for our clients. We were founded 2017 in Stockholm, and we now have local hubs in Oslo, London, New York and Singapore that serve over 1,000 clients, who collectively push petabytes of data through our systems each month. If you’re wondering about requests per second, we’ll tell you over a Zoom coffee.
Today, our technology is first and foremost used for digital advertising, but we’ve just launched products for online retailers where load speed and quality of video and images on e-com sites are of equally high importance for great conversion rates.
“That sounds cool, but what about the people?”
Well, here you can find pretty much everyone. Nerds, introverts, extroverts, sales gurus, start-up junkies, 9-to-5ers, daydreamers, visionaries – yes, we even have an office plant named Fred.
Our tech team describes our culture as encouraging, inclusive, and innovative. They believe that both personal and professional growth comes from relentlessly solving new and evermore complex problems by testing new solutions together with people that both challenges you and makes you laugh. They believe in you, and your ability to deliver what is expected, and will give you the freedom to choose how.
We are growing fast and just raised a new round of financing to fuel the buildout of our organization and the resulting global expansion. Although we’ve already come a long way, we feel like our journey just has begun and hope that you want to join this fantastic team on our mission to “speed up the internet”.
