Mailchimp is a leading marketing platform for small business. We empower millions of customers around the world to build their brands and grow their companies with a suite of marketing automation, multichannel campaign, CRM, and analytics tools.

Mailchimp is looking for an engineer to join our team. You will collaborate with data scientists to develop and deploy predictive models. You will also work with application engineers to use those models’ predictions within the Mailchimp platform. As part of Mailchimp’s Engineering team, we work closely with Mailchimp’s data scientists to make data insights actionable. The Machine Learning (ML) Engineering team builds tools and infrastructure that empower Mailchimp’s own data scientists.. The team also builds applications that empower Mailchimp customers to understand and utilize their data. By using predictive analytics and big data technologies, we help Mailchimp fight spam and empower small businesses with information. 

If you are a self-directed, experienced engineer who believes in demonstrating how data can be used to help our customers, we’d love to hear from you! 


What you'll do: 

  • Collaborate with product managers, data scientists, and application engineers to create, deliver, and maintain end-to-end features based on machine learning
  • Design, develop and deploy high quality data/ML pipelines and services using Python, Google BigQuery, Dataflow, Docker, Kubernetes, and other Google Cloud services

  • You have development experience in Python or another modern, high-level object-oriented language (e.g. Java, PHP)
  • You have experience with SQL databases or data processing frameworks. We write a lot of SQL ourselves (ORMs aren’t that relevant for data science).
  • You adhere to internal coding standards, development processes, and design best practices
  • You ensure quality by performing thorough testing and leveraging peer reviews for your work and the work of others
  • You embrace and demonstrate our values: humility, creativity, and independence


Experience that is nice to have:

  • Working on ML projects or applications
  • Google BigQuery or similar tools like Amazon Redshift or Snowflake
