Job Description

At Segment, we believe companies should be able to send their data wherever they want, whenever they want, with no fuss. We make this easy with a single platform that collects, stores, filters, transforms, and sends data to hundreds of business tools with the flip of a switch. Our goal is to make it easy to understand, extract value, and protect the integrity of data. We are creating a world where engineers spend their time working on their core product, letting us take care of the complexities of processing their customer data reliably at scale. We’re in the running to take over the entire customer data ecosystem, and we need the best people to take the market.

Who we are:

We develop our product across a number of teams based in San Francisco, Vancouver and New York each with a particular product feature focus area. From collecting data through analytics.js, to building powerful tools for data governance, to implementing algorithms that can handle complex billing scenarios at scale, to visualizing our customers’ data flow through our pipelines, to making complex implementations manageable for our large enterprise customers, to optimizing Sign Up conversion, our product teams are focused on creating fantastic user experiences. We're looking for talented engineers that are passionate about building world-class experiences that delight our customers.

What We Do:

Who We're Looking For:

You can turn complex business requirements into working software that our customers love to use.
  • You're proud of the code you write, but you're also pragmatic.
  • You know when it is time to refactor, and when it's time to ship.
  • You're focused, driven and can get challenging projects across the finish line.
  • You're empathetic, patient and love to help your teammates grow.
  • You have experience running apps in production and take software engineering practices seriously.
  • You write meaningful tests and understand the value of great logging, proper monitoring and error tracking.
  • You are excited about thinking about different stakeholders (internal engineers, partners, enterprise customers) when considering what to build and how to build it.

Projects You Could Work On:

  • Finding new ways to help our customers integrate their first-party customer data with the tools they love, building out Segment’s most valuable integrations, partnering directly with external product managers.
  • Developing end-user facing tools to allow customers to inspect and debug the way their integrations are working.
  • Rethinking the way customers organize and version their integrations.
  • Evolving one of our many OpenSource frameworks and libraries, adding features and documentation that benefit all developers


  • You can write JavaScript or TypeScript using modern language features.
  • You have experience with a backend language of choice: Golang, Java, Ruby, Python, node.js, etc
  • You have some familiarity with Golang or are excited to learn it.
  • You have some familiarity with React or are excited to learn it.
  • Minimum of 3 years of industry experience in engineering or challenging multi quarter projects you can talk about.
  • Mentorship and tech lead experience 
  • You value teamwork and agree with the statement that “a team is a group of people who own each other's decisions”.
  • You are excited about solving problems and not wedded to a particular technology but rather delighting customers whether those are internal engineers, partners, or enterprise customers.
We encourage you to apply if this role excites you - even if you think you may not meet all requirements listed above. At Segment, we live by four values: karma, drive, tribe and focus.
