About Ahoy:

We believe community-led is the ‘next big thing’ for how creators, startups, and enterprises grow, but... today, community managers lack the understanding of what really happens inside their audience and what value it brings. That is why we’re building AhoyConnect - a community data intelligence platform, that enables organizations to understand, grow, engage, automate, and derive value from their audiences.

We are a fully remote team that values transparency, clear communication, and the discussion of facts and opinions. Also, we’ve just closed our Seed round and we’re looking for exceptional talent to join us on the journey to becoming the global tool of choice for community-led companies.

We're looking for an exceptional Lead Data Engineer who will keep making sure our software is on the way to becoming impeccable! Does that sound like you? Read along! 🚀

      • Be able to solve problems without us holding your hands and turn ideas into elegant solutions 👩‍💻🧑‍💻
      • Experience using Git version control (we use Github) 🕹
      • Great communication (we use Slack Notion) 🗣
      • Friendly attitude, and an interest in the latest tech, and a passion for learning 📚
      • Nice but not essential:

        • Experience with building custom integrations (APIs)
        • DataOps skills
        • Knowledge of Ruby

          • We believe in people over processes, results over tasks
          • We just closed our Seed round with the leading VCs from the region, launched the product, and onboarded first clients. This is just the first, tiny step - we aim to build a successful global business that will shape the future of community-led growth. We want you to have an impact and be a part of this journey!
          • You will have a lot of flexibility and autonomy - we trust you to tell us how things should be done, not the other way round.
          • We've been remote before it was cool and will stay remote-first forever
          • We run retreats (both before and after covid) – e.g., we've spent more than a month in Southeast Asia with the whole team. Next stop? Mallorca! ☀️
          • You will work with extremely driven and collaborative teammates coming out of various places and backgrounds.
          • Flexible working hours and environment, believing in asynchronous yet collaborative work, having as few internal meetings and procedures as possible 🙂
          • Perks:

            • 💰 Attractive salary with ESOP (stock options)
            • 🤝 Possibility to work with highly ambitious, energetic, diverse group of people
