Who are we?

The companies that win today are those that put an understanding of their customers and prospects at the heart of their organisation; the investment in a central data team is an essential part of this journey. COVID-19 and the global switch-off of the in-person economy is accelerating these trends: interacting with and understanding your customers online is key to surviving and thriving in the new environment.

At Snowplow we are focused on powering the data journey that these central data teams are embarking on. To win in the new world, it’s essential that the data team can focus on the journey to value and mastery, and not get derailed by costly data delivery issues or burdensome organizational complexity. Snowplow helps data teams to do this, offering a data delivery platform that collects and operationalizes behavioural data, at scale.

It’s an exciting time here at Snowplow. We are actively selling in 14 countries with hundreds of customers and thousands of open-source users; Snowplow is well placed to weather the ongoing economic storm, having recently closed its Series A fundraising with MMC Ventures. The Snowplow team is delighted to announce that Gartner has recognised us as a cool vendor in Marketing and Data Analytics 2020.

The Opportunity:
As we grow, we want to develop our internal data capabilities to match our belief that companies should be investing in their data teams.  We want to give our teams the tools and data they need to excel. This is a unique opportunity to build the data tooling and process in a business that has expert data users within the functional teams. If you are excited about working in a fast-paced environment, solving complex problems, working with stakeholders across the business and helping to drive insight through data then we would love to hear from you. 

The Data team will be part of our wider Operations team reporting directly to our COO. This is a hands on role with the opportunity to initially manage one other person but over time build a larger team.
