Mentimeter's vision is to transform presentations and meetings into fun and interactive experiences by making it easy to listen and to be heard. We believe in giving everyone a voice, in every meeting and presentation. We are building a modern, friendly, and diverse product-first tech company based in Stockholm and we would love for you to join us!

The Data Platform Team at Mentimeter builds data products and platforms that influence the future path of the company. The team is part of the larger Data and Analytics organization which consists of other embedded and central teams of data scientists, analysts and insight people. Here, you’ll be working on a data ecosystem that serves all of the departments (Product, Marketing, Sales and Finance) with both data as well as infrastructure. You will have a direct impact on the future of Mentimeter’s business and product decisions.

As a Data Engineer, you will be involved in building data platforms to tackle business and technical use cases. Some of the tools we are using today are Heroku and AWS with technologies such as Postgres, Redshift, ECS, Prefect, Fivetran, dbt, Metabase, Python, TypeScript and Terraform. We’re also on the path of migrating to Looker. Today, your team consists of a lead, two data engineers and two analytics engineers.

Key responsibilities:

  • Develop and maintain batch and stream data pipelines between operational and analytical databases as well as third party systems.
  • Collaborate with product developers, analytics engineers and data scientists to deliver new data features within the data warehouse or other systems.
  • Collaborate with analytics engineers to validate and ensure high data quality.
  • Maintain a performant data warehouse and scale it as needed.

Skills Needed: 

We believe you have:

  • A numerate degree and/or previous experience working as a data engineer, data heavy backend developer or similar.
  • Experience of software engineering and programming (Python, SQL, Java, Scala) in a professional environment.
  • Knowledge of architecture and design (patterns, reliability, scalability, quality) of systems.
  • Comfortable communicating with a diverse set of technical and business stakeholders in English, especially written (daily work is carried out in English and the Mentimeter team currently boasts 40+ different nationalities).

It is beneficial if you have:

  • Experience with stream processing and real time systems
  • Experience with ML engineering
  • Professional experience working in an agile environment
  • Experience with attracting, finding and growing talented professionals

Not required:

  • You don't have to know Swedish (daily work is carried out in English and the Mentimeter team currently boasts 40 different nationalities!)

Not sure you meet 100% of the requirements? We encourage and welcome your application anyway!


This role will have its base in our HQ in Stockholm and is an onsite/hybrid role.

Please note: Due to recent updates in Swedish migration law, it is currently difficult for us to hire candidates from outside of the EU where we can guarantee a safe and risk-free relocation to Sweden with a prolonged work permit. We strive to make decisions on a case-by-case basis while taking this into account.

What you can expect from our recruitment process:

  1. Introduction interview - Get to know us better and introduce yourself
  2. Case - Show your skills by conducting a small business or technical case
  3. Competence interview - Meet the team and dive deep into your background and knowledge.
  4. Culture interview - Discuss our core values and culture, are we a perfect fit?

Our 5 core principles and basis for our value-driven culture include:

  • Inclusiveness - Transparency, equality and diversity
  • Work smart - Know when to excel but also when good enough is exactly that, good enough
  • Professionalism - “The consultant mindset”
  • Be Humble to others work
  • Have fun

The Mentimeter Culture

The work environment is inclusive, respectful, non-political, fun and very professional. We make sure to excel when we need to, but never overdo it in order to maintain our work-life balance. With over 40 different nationalities working at Mentimeter, this is one of many ways we show that we embrace diversity. To embrace other cultures we also re-locate the entire team for one month, once a year.

A platform where people feel safe, where differences are embraces, a place where you can have fun. We strongly encourage applicants who are people of color, LGBTQ, women, people with disabilities, and/or formerly incarcerated people, and a college degree is not strictly required. In order to give everyone a voice, we need to be as diverse as our users.
