Software Engineer - Data Platform
Berlin, Germany

About the opportunity

At Contentful we collect and centralize all data from the different components of our microservice based platform. We enrich the data of our platform with the wealth of information that comes from Salesforce, Zendesk, and several other services that we use to interact and communicate with our users. As we grow we add services to our data aggregation pipeline and curate the collected data.

You will also be responsible for continually iterating and innovating our Data Warehouse, Data Lake and ETL procedures around them ensuring that the flow of new data doesn’t deteriorate performances.
