We’re looking for a Data Engineer (Remote) to join our growing Data Science team at Web Summit, to build out our data platform and deliver key data services for our internal users. The team builds custom data pipelines, data models, and dashboards, and manages all the underlying infrastructure.

In the words of Inc. Magazine, “Web Summit is the largest technology conference in the world”. Forbes says Web Summit is “the best tech conference on the planet”, Bloomberg calls it  “Davos for geeks”, Politico “the Olympics of tech”, and the Guardian “Glastonbury for geeks”.
Whatever Web Summit is, it wouldn’t be possible without an incredible team of more than 240 employees, including world-class engineers, data scientists, designers, producers, marketers, salespeople and more.
We’ve disrupted an old industry by building incredible software and designing mind-blowing events. We’ve revolutionised how people come together in our world. We started with one event: Web Summit. But now we’re creating category-defining events all over the world, from Asia to North America.

  • You’ll collaborate and learn with other team members via mentoring, code reviews, and technical talks.
  • You’ll learn about and champion best practices in code, architecture and development processes.

Who you are:

  • You have an analytical mind and love solving problems.
  • You care deeply about data engineering culture and the quality of products you and your team build.
  • You love working with data and new technologies.
  • You’re knowledgeable in a broad spectrum of products and recent developments, and can make informed choices about technologies to be adopted.
